Privacy policy and email data

This blog does not share personal information with third parties nor do we store any information about your visit to this blog other than to analyze and optimize your content and reading experience through the use of cookies.

How do we look after your data?  

Who holds your data?  We use a company called MailChimp to both manage our email list and to automatically send out our newsletters.  Your data is held by MailChimp and not by Petfriendly Ireland.  By signing up to our email list, you consent to us passing your data to MailChimp.  Your data may be held outside the European Union.

What do we do with your data?  Your email address is only used for sending our newsletters.  Very occasionally, this may include articles sponsored by external companies.  We do not rent our list to third parties and we do not send out advertising material on behalf of third parties.

What data do we hold?  The only data we request is your email address.  You may – at your discretion – add your name to your record by clicking ‘Update Profile’ at the bottom of every email.  This makes it less likely that our emails are treated as spam because your name is encoded into the ‘To’ box.

What usage data is collected?  MailChimp tracks how many of our emails you open and whether you click on any links.  We only use this data to identify and delete accounts which are no longer active, eg a work email address where the employee has left the company.  MailChimp also tracks what device you use to read your emails in order to use the most suitable mailing format.

How can you unsubscribe?   You may unsubscribe at any point by using the link included in all of our emails.  Emails will cease immediately.

How can I get a copy of my MailChimp data?  Email via the email address you use for our emails and we will happily send you a screenshot of your MailChimp profile.
