In order to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), we do update this policy from time to time so please review this policy regularly.
What information do we collect?
To ensure we are in line with the CIEH model licence conditions it is important that we collect certain personal information from you when we register you as a client. Your name, address, phone numbers and email address along with details of an emergency contact (for whom you are responsible for obtaining permission from in order to supply us with their name and a means of contacting them) are all essential for the smooth running of Catwick Cattery. We also collect information about your cat with the details of your own veterinary practice to ensure we can provide the best care should any issues arise whilst your cat is boarding with us.
What do we use this information for?
The information supplied by you may be used in the following ways:
1) To record your booking/information, to ensure we can offer the most appropriate care to your cat/s and to track day to day information as is necessary for the running of the cattery and to produce invoices and receipts.
2) To contact you, your emergency contact or your own veterinary practice should any issue arise whilst your cat is boarding with us or to provide updates where requested.
3) From time to time we may send you promotional emails and information about our services/ offers and other information as appropriate.
How do we keep your information safe?
We hold customers information in two ways:
Digitally: We record details of all bookings on a secure computer. Only staff at Catwick Cattery have access to this data.
Hard Copy: Where our Customer Records/ Consent Form/ booking forms are completed in hard copy format, we securely store these in the Catwick Cattery Office. We also keep copies of invoices and receipts for accounting purposes.
How long do we keep this information for and how do we dispose of it?
The information you give us will be kept as long as you remain a customer of Catwick Cattery and should you cease to use our services it will be deleted from our customer database within two years of your cat’s last stay and any paper copies (excluding invoices and receipts) will be shredded.
Sharing your information
We will not share or sell your information to any third party for the purposes of marketing. Information will only be shared where there may be an appropriate legal reason to do so or should your cat require medical attention by a vet and only information relevant to that situation will be shared.
Our website may collect personal information from you should you use your online contact form and these details may be stored manually and/or electronically.
