Using your personal information

PDSA will never exchange or sell your information to another organisation for their own marketing purposes. As Data Controller PDSA will collect and use your personal information when you use or access our services, visit our websites, or help with our income generating activities. We only collect and use personal information necessary to fund and deliver our charitable veterinary services, and to carry out our associated legitimate business purposes such as direct marketing, business administration, and financial control. This may include talking to you about fundraising (such as appeals, competitions, commercial trading activities, events or sponsorships) and volunteering opportunities, or about pet insurance and animal welfare issues. In order to provide you with the best possible experience we will also use your personal information to help us decide what you may like to hear about and to personalise our communications and services.

Based on the services you use, or support that you give, we will retain your personal information for a reasonable period of time. For more details on how we use and retain your personal information, your data protection rights, or to contact our Data Protection Officer please refer to our full privacy policy or call us to request your own copy.  If you’d like to opt out of our marketing and fundraising communications, simply select the appropriate tick boxes on our website or call our friendly supporter services team on 0800 591248 to tell us your contact preferences.
