What is GDPR?
GDPR (or the General Data Protection Regulation) is a new EU-wide data protection law which comes into force on May 25th 2018. The GDPR is designed to give people across the EU more control over their personal data by granting new "digital rights" to cover how companies, like us, handle your data. Your personal data is any information relating to you; anything from your name, address, or computer's IP address.
How does this affect my relationship with DogBuddy?
To help connect dog owners with dog sitters, we need to process some information. For example, we hold your email address so you can access your account, and your postcode so we can suggest suitable sitters in your area. We also keep a record of things like past bookings so we can better understand and enhance your experience.
We've also updated your notification centre. You can now choose exactly how we inform you about your bookings, DogBuddy services you use, and the ways you're happy for us to send you promotional messages and product updates.
