THE DOGMOTHERS DATA PROTECTION STATEMENT
We at The DogMothers take your privacy seriously.
We are committed to protecting your personal information. This policy sets out how The DogMothers uses the information that you provide us with.
Who we are
Who's data do we process?
- Clients & customers
- And any other bodies necessary to the running of the business
- Where did we get your data from? We get data about you from you when:
- You contact or visit us,
- buying from our shop,
- engaging with educational or community outreach services or other advocacy;
- or when we complete a business transaction with you as a supplier of products or services,

Data Analysis: To communicate with you more effectively, better understand your preferences we may analyse your data
What types of personal data do we process:
For our various activities, we process a range of categories of personal data. The categories of data we process as an organisation are:
- Contact information (such as name, email address, phone number, postal address, home address, work address)
- Information about your household
- Videos and images from CCTV
- Videos and images recorded for marketing and publicity purposes at events.
- Financial information (for the purposes of payment of services)
- Tax information, including your PPSN
- IP addresses – we process IP addresses in our website for access logging and other technical administration and security purposes. In normal circumstances we cannot identify an individual from their IP address, but we could potentially link an IP address to a named person from a transaction on the website, so we consider IP addresses to be personal data where such analysis is being done (usually at the request of law enforcement or as part of fraud detection and prevention controls). We also process IP addresses as part of our marketing email management processes to identify when emails are delivered, opened, and acted on.
On What Basis do we process your data?
The Dog Mothers will only process (use) your personal information if we have:
- asked you and have a record of your specific and recent consent for us to do so;
- a ‘Legitimate Interest’ to do so in order to support our services to you. Our use will be fair and balanced and never unduly have an impact on your rights;
- a contract with you that we can only fulfil by using your personal information, e.g. to send you something you have ordered from the website;
- a legal obligation to use or disclose information about you, e.g. for tax purposes,
From time to time, we would like to send you exciting updates about our work, products, services and how you can support us, including fundraising activities and research.
How long we keep your data:
We will keep the personal data of customers for no longer than is deemed necessary, so this will depend on the purpose for which we process your data. Some of these time limits are listed above with the descriptions of purposes for processing data. We retain the personal data of suppliers for as long as is deemed relevant and legally necessary. We will retain the personal details of past, current or future employees in line with employment law.
Unless you tell us not to, we think you are contenting for us to process (keep and use) your personal information for the following lengths of time. As of May 2018, we promise not to keep your information for longer than we specify below..
