- Data Protection
Pointers In Need (The Charity) are committed to protecting and respecting Your privacy in accordance with the current Data Protection Legislation. Below is a summary of the main ways in which we process Your personal data.
- How We Use & Disclose Your Personal Data and Who We Share it With
The Charity may use any personal data we hold about You for the purposes of adopting or fostering dogs. During the adoption/fostering process, we may need to share information to third-parties to facilitate the completion of the adoption/foster from the dog’s current location to your home. This may necessitate the use of your personal data, particularly in relation to the transport, border control, animal passporting, veterinary services, and DEFRA regulatory requirements, and also to arrange any appropriate free insurance cover for the dog, and any other UK regulatory authority we may be obliged to comply with.
- Sensitive Personal Data
Some of the personal information, such as the proof of your identity we may have asked for during the adoption/fostering process, may be required by The Charity for the specific purposes of fulfilling the adoption/fostering process. The provision of such data is conditional for The Charity to be able to complete the adoption/foster.
- Your Rights
You have the right to see a copy of the personal information The Charity hold about You, to have Your data deleted, to have any inaccurate or misleading data corrected, or deleted. You may ask The Charity to provide a copy of Your data to and to lodge a complaint with the local data protection authority if necessary.
Your data will not be retained for longer than is absolutely necessary. In most cases the retention period will be for the period the animal remains alive and in your care.
If You have a concern about the way The Charity have handled Your personal data, then You have the right to report this to the Information Commissioner’s Office.
