Privacy Statement

We are required by law to clearly and simply explain what personal data we collect and the reasons why we collect it.

We collect the bare minimum of personal data and use it only for the core business purposes of accounts, record keeping, communication, bookings and dog health care and safety. We also have a newsletter mailing list, but it is opt in only and you can unsubscribe at any time if you change your mind.

What personal data do we collect?

We collect two kinds – contact data and transaction data.

Contact data consists of your name, delivery address, billing address, email address, IP address and phone number. We collect this data so we can take your dog run bookings or to send you a newsletter if you have subscribed.

Transaction data consists of what dog run slots you have ordered, how much you paid and by what means you paid. It is simple common sense to keep a note of what we have sold, but we are also required by law to keep business accounts and to submit an annual tax return. The transaction data is an integral part of this process.

We collect no other personal data or financial data. The financial data associated with my transactions goes to PayPal, and does not come to us.


How do we collect your personal data?

Directly from you when you fill in an online order form, contact form, newsletter sign up form or place a booking with your contact and transaction details. We are required to obtain your clear consent before collecting your data, and so you have to click a consent box before your order form is sent.

If you phone or visit us to enquire about or use our facilities we will collect the relevant information to process your request or booking.

Also, if you send an email or sign up to our online newsletter we will receive your email address.

Email enquiries are stored on our dedicated email account, and are deleted along with your contact information after the enquiry has been dealt with.

How long do we keep your personal data?

Can I insist that my personal data is deleted from your records?

Yes, it is your statutory right to do so. We will delete your personal data on request, apart from any current transaction data that we must retain for tax purposes.


Do we share personal data with any third parties?

Data is passed through WooCommerce to PayPal so that your order can be processed. If you sign up for our newsletter your name and email address will be passed to Mailchimp and added to our mailing list.
