FBRL Privacy Statement

Fanciers Breeder Referral List Statement of Privacy: The Fanciers Breeder Referral List recognizes the confidentiality of information that may be disclosed by members in signing up, making corrections, or making purchases from our website and we are firmly committed to protecting your privacy. The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for this site.


The personal, private information that is provided to the Fanciers Breeder Referral List by individual subscribers is not provided to unrelated third parties except in exceptionally rare cases involving possible violations of our use policies or legal statutes.

Information published on the site for purposes of contacting subscribers in a manner appropriate and in accordance with our Terms of Service is public information. Unfortunately we cannot always control how this information is used. If you object to the use of your information, you can always opt out of having certain information appear, with the exception of minimum information described below.

Private information shared for the purposes of billing, such as home address or non-published telephone number are never shared with third parties for any purpose, except in exceptionally rare cases involving possible violations of our use policies, legal statutes, or subpoena.

Does the Fanciers Breeder Referral List use cookies?

Non-identifying information may be collected through cookies to provide statistical information, such as how many users are on the site, what browsers or platforms they are using, monitor resolution, etc.

These cookies collect no personal, identifying information and are used to provide site traffic statistics to potential sponsors and to improve site performance.

Does the Fanciers Breeder Referral List ask for personal information?

Yes and no. We ask for personal contact information and information about a person's cattery when a breeder subscribes to become a listed cattery. This is necessary to provide adequate information for site visitors to make an informed decision. The FBRL's third-party billing companies, Merchant E-Solutions and PayPal, may require billing information, such as address, telephone number, and credit card information. Billing information is never shared with third parties and is only used for billing purposes, without exception.

Personal information is not requested of site visitors and site users -- only of listed breeders.

Does the Fanciers Breeder Referral List use my personal information for any reason other than providing information for my advertising?

The only reason we would use your private information is to contact you ourselves about a billing problem, new site information, subscription reminders, and the like. Your information will never be sold or included by us in any kind of marketing list for the purposes of a third-party advertiser for any reason. If your public information ends up in that situation, it is because this was taken without my permission and you should judge the motives and ethics of the sender accordingly.

Does the Fanciers Breeder Referral List request or require any personal financial information?

To facilitate payment for subscriptions by listed breeders, the Fanciers Breeder Referral List will request personal credit card or debit card information through our third-party credit card processor, Merchant E-Solutions, or through PayPal. Other information, such as billing address and email, are required for verification and to make sure that your payment is credited properly.

Will the Fanciers Breeder Referral List disclose any of my personal information to third parties?

The Fanciers Breeder Referral List will never disclose any of your personal information, except with your advance knowledge and written consent as described in this policy or as may be required by law, or to protect the rights or property of the Fanciers Breeder Referral List.

Will the Fanciers Breeder Referral List use my information for direct mailings?

The Fanciers Breeder Referral List does not engage in unsolicited mailing, either by email or by the postal service. We will only send site subscribers information specific to their own listing from time to time, such as subscription renewal notices, or very occasional announcements that may affect their listing choices.

May I refuse to provide personal information to the Fanciers Breeder Referral List?

Yes and no.

Site visitors never need to provide identifying personal information.

If you are a listed breeder, there is certain minimum information that must be provided, such as your name, cattery name, cattery registration number (for verification purposes), state or province (if in the United States, Canada, or Australia), country (if outside the United Staes, Canada, or Australia), breeds, and email address. Listings may not appear without an email address. Other information, such as city, cattery information, telephone number, fax number, Facebook link, or web site address are all optional.

Certain personal information is also required to complete financial transactions but this is not used for any reason other than verification. You may always opt out of optional information by sending a request through the Update Form.
