What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Personal information we may gather can include the following: name, email address, personal account preferences, technical date (i.e. cookies). We collect this data from form submissions or cookies active on the webpage. This is retained for legal records and anti-spam filtering.

We use third-party plugins on our website, which may also collect personal data. For a list of the active current plugins used at any given time, please contact us.

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymised string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Media

If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

All uploaded files become property of Beau Chien Pet Boutique, and are accessible publicly.

Contact forms

Contact forms are used on our website for multiple purposes. Primary use is to submit an application for an appointment with us. The data collected on these forms may include name, email address, address, contact number and cookies.

Cookies

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Analytics

We use Google Analytics to track our visitor count on our website. This may include geo-location. Please contact us if you wish to be removed from this.

Who we share your data with

We will never share you data for any purpose other than that of carrying out the requested task, marketing and analytics. We use 3rd party providers such as MailChimp to carry out these tasks, and as such your data may be shared with them. A copy of their privacy policy can be found here (https://mailchimp.com/legal/privacy/).

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

We keep analytics records for 2 years for the purpose of comparison of performance. Personal data will be redacted from these records after 1 year.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service. No data is sent outside of the European Union, and is safeguarded to European data protection standards by WordPress and GoDaddy.
