Privacy Policy

At Petair Ltd, we are committed to respecting your privacy and protecting your privacy

This Policy explains when and why we ask for personal information about people and pets who visit our website, what we do with it, the conditions under which we may disclose it to others and how we keep it secure.

If you have any questions about this then either you can write to us at Petair Ltd, Deer Park Farm, Wimborne St Giles, Dorset BH21 5NZ, email us at enquiries@petairuk.com or telephone our office on 01725551124

Who we are?

We are Petair Ltd and our business is the safe transport of pets by air and road to many destinations all over the world. Our company number is 5428505. Our registered office address is Petair Ltd, 5-7 Castle Street, Cranborne, Dorset BH21 5PZ. Our trading address is Petair Ltd, Deer Park Farm, Wimborne St Giles, Dorset BH21 5NZ.

How do we collect information about you?

We ask you to fill out forms on our websites if you would like to know more about our services. We also gather information from you if you call us so that we can respond to your requests, which is most often to give you a quote to move your pet or to move your pet. We use google analytics on our website to see how many people have been to different parts of our website.

What information do we keep/ask for?

We ask for a number of details, including (but not limited to): name, address, email address, telephone numbers, details in destination country, pet details. We do not keep card details or payment details as they go through a secure site. We don’t ask for details we don’t need. Pet shipping is complicated with many variables, so the information we ask from you is to enable us to either provide you with a quote or to enable us to complete a booking for your pet to travel.

What do we do with your information?

We use the details you have given us to provide you with a quote or to plan a journey for your pets. So we send you emails, sometimes we may call you, we may text you – all in the course of completing our work for you. We may send some of your details to airlines, relevant government authorities in order to receive import or export documents for your pets. And we may send your details to other agents in the country of destination if you require their services.

We may send you our newsletter, if you have asked for it and we may send your details to a very limited number of third party companies, but only if you have specifically asked for this.

We hold your information for as long as is necessary. Pet shipping is complicated and often our clients from many years ago contact us to help with an onward move. If you would like us to delete your information then just ask us.

Lawfulness

By asking us for a quote and providing your details for us to plan the journey for your pets, then you are providing consent to us to use your data for that purpose only. And the Processing is necessary for the performance of a contract with the data subject or to take steps to enter into a contract.

Who has access to your information?

Most of your information will only be seen by staff at Petair Ltd, but we do need to share your information for the specific purpose of moving your pets. So other organisations who will see your information include: airlines, government authorities, other agents in country of destination, vets, cattery, kennels.

If you have asked for help with extra emigration related information, then we will give your details to a very small number of third parties and they may contact you.

Your choices:

You can choose not to have your information shared, but this is going to mean that we cannot complete our work for you. You can choose or ask us to delete your personal information by contacting us in the manner described above.

Accessing and updating information

You can contact us to access and update your information and we welcome this, as having correct information means that we can serve you better.

You have the right to ask for all information held about you. We will need up to 30 days to process these requests. In order to request the information you need to contact us as described above.

Security precautions in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of your information

When you give us personal information, we take steps to ensure that it’s treated securely. Any sensitive information (such as credit or debit card details) is encrypted and protected with the following software 128 Bit encryption on SSL. When you are on a secure page, a lock icon will appear on the bottom of web browsers such as Microsoft Internet Explorer.

Non-sensitive details (your email address etc.) are transmitted normally over the Internet, and this can never be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your information, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems. Where we have given (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our websites, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone.
