Privacy

We are pleased to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) effective from May 25th 2018. This gives total transparency of how we handle and safeguard your personal information.

Where do we collect your personal information from?

We may collect, store and use personal information obtained through your contact and/or registration with us.

What personal information do we collect?

We may collect, store and use the following kinds of personal information: Your name, address, contact details, any relevant health information, the monies you have paid us, and details about your dogs. If you disclose to us the personal information of another person, you must obtain that person's consent to both the disclosure and the processing of that personal information in accordance with this policy.

How do we use your personal information?

We may use your personal information to:

  1. Administer Four Paws club. This includes completing registration details, organizing our database, organizing our classes, and informing trainers, Committee members and any other relevant person.
  2. Store your information so that we can continue to administer the club efficiently.
  3. Send you email notifications that pertain to the club or that may be of interest to club members.
  4. Send you any newsletter that we produce.

Will you disclose my personal information?

We will not supply your personal information to any third party for the purpose of their or any other third party's direct marketing.

We may supply your personal information to the Kennel Club for the purpose of administering the Good Citizen Awards only if you have explicitly consented to this.

We will only disclose your personal information to any third party if required to do so by law or to establish, exercise or defend our legal rights.

How long will you retain my personal information?

We will not retain personal information for longer than is necessary for our administration purposes. People sometimes return to the club after a period of absence, so we may retain information after you leave the club for a while, unless you ask us not to.

We may retain personal information longer should we be required to do so by law, or to establish, exercise or defend our legal rights.

Security of personal information

Personal information may be retained on a computer held by the Club Membership Secretary. The name of the current Membership Secretary can be found in our constitution, which is published on the club website. Names, dog names and contact details may be retained at the club premises in an area inaccessible to the general public: this is to enable all trainers to inform of late cancellations to classes. Names, dog names, dog breed, ages, and other information about dogs, and any relevant health information will be made available to trainers and Committee members so that the club can run efficiently and safely.

We will take reasonable technical and organisational precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information. This includes security of information held on any computer. Personal information is only held on the computer hard drive and not held on a server.

Updating information

Please let us know if the personal information that we hold about you needs to be corrected or updated. We may update this policy from time to time by publishing a new version on our website. You should check this page occasionally to ensure you are happy with any changes to this policy.

Your rights

You may instruct us to provide you with any personal information we hold about you; provision of such information will be subject to any legal requirements or relevant legislation, including legislation concerning payment.
