In an attempt to provide increased value to our visitors, Bija Collars may link to sites operated by third parties. However, even if the third party is affiliated with Bija Collars, Bija Collars has no control over these linked sites, all of which have separate privacy and data collection practices, independent of Bija Collars. These linked sites are only for your convenience and therefore you access them at your own risk. Nonetheless, Bija Collars seeks to protect the integrity of its website and the links placed upon it and therefore requests any feedback on not only its own site, but on sites it links to, as well (including if a specific link does not work).
