How we protect your information
When you place an order on our website your payment details are used to process your order on our payment partners’ systems. We offer payment by credit and debit card and PayPal. PayPal provides a secure payment gateway that encrypts your card details in a secure hosted environment. This protects your confidential data, particularly your credit card details from unauthorised use.
We aim to keep your information up-to-date and accurate. Please note that, to do this, we require you to tell us if any of your details such as your name or address change.
We have strict security procedures for the storage and disclosure of your information to prevent unauthorised access. We do not store credit card information nor do we share customer details with any third parties, apart from those details needed in order to deliver your order.
Keeping your Information
We will hold your information for as long as you have an account, or as long as is needed to be able to provide the services to you. We may also keep some of your information if necessary or required to meet legal or regulatory requirements, resolve disputes, prevent fraud and abuse, or enforce our terms and conditions, even after you have closed your account or it is no longer needed to provide the services to you. Petlife’s general retention policy is to retain information for 7 years.
You have the right to ask us not to process your personal data for marketing purposes. We will ask you, before collecting your data, for your consent to use your data for such purposes. You can also exercise your right not to receive marketing information at any time by clicking the link on the bottom of each email or contacting our customer service team on 01284 761131.
