How we use your information

We process your data in order to provide the services and deliver the products defined in our General Terms and Conditions. Our legal basis for processing these data falls into one of the following categories:

  • To enable us to enter into an agreement with you for the provision of services;
  • To serve our legitimate business interests, such as to process a payment or to send you a vaccination reminder;
  • If we have your consent, such as for marketing purposes (see the specific GDPR statement for more details).

We may share the information defined above about you with certain third parties to enable us to supply and provide the products and services defined in our General Terms and Conditions. These include payment processors, insurers, debt collection agencies, referrals to other veterinarians or specialist clinics and laboratories or other service providers who assist us in providing the services for your pet.

We will retain information about you as long as we have a legitimate business interest in doing so. Thereafter, your data will be securely destroyed if possible, or at least anonymised if destruction is technically impossible.

Securing your data

We understand how important it is to keep your data secure and we use a number of technical and organisational measures to ensure this. We only allow access to your data to persons with a legitimate business interest, subject to strict confidentiality. We have processes in place to deal with potential breaches of information security, including communications to you and our regulators where we are required to do so by law.
