Privacy Policy

We do not store a lot of user information but when we do, we take its security very seriously. This privacy policy sets out how Dr Caroline, the Slim Pet Vet uses and protects any data you provide. It may change from time to time so please check by every so often to ensure that you are happy with any changes. This policy is effective from January 1st 2022.

What data we collect 

From non-members, the ONLY times we collect any data are:

  1. When users accessing the site on a mobile device press the ‘view desktop site’ button, we place a cookie in to the user’s browser cache and make a record of their ip address so that we can remember their preferences the next time they visit.

In each of the above cases, members are asked for confirmation before any data is recorded.

Naturally, if you use the contact form to get in touch with us, your email address and message will be recorded in order to allow us to reply.

If you are a non-member and you don’t do any of the above actions, none of your data will be recorded by us.

For our members, we have to keep a small amount of information just to allow the accounts to work properly. For example, when a visitor creates their account with us, their email address is recorded for log-in purposes and for any notifications they sign up for.

Any personal information members choose to enter into the forum, of course, also recorded.

Lastly, the site places a cookie, into members’ browser caches in order to keep them logged in/out. This cookie expires after 30 days.

And that’s it. Nothing else.

All information is stored securely in an encrypted database and will never be shared with or sold to anyone else, ever.
