Your / Your Dogs Information

I need to collect data such as name, address and contact details so that I can contact you regarding your dog’s groom. This could be for appointment confirmation, collection time or if an issue arises during the groom. I will also hold details about your dog. This will include name, breed, age, vet details, temperament, medical conditions, behavioral issues that he / she may have. This enables me to provide a safe grooming service for both your dog and myself. I may also collect pictures of the work I do for the business social media / website. You may opt out of this.

How is the Information Stored?

Each customer will have a customer record card which holds your / your pets information in hard copy. I will also store a signed Privacy Notice along with this. These will be stored in a safe location within my home. No one will have access to this information apart from Filthy Houndrels. Your phone number and name maybe be stored as a contact in my phone for ease of contact. The phone is fingerprint / passcode protected and is only accessible by myself.
