Privacy Policy

At Medivet, we aim to be completely transparent with regards to all user data processed and stored by this site. We also understand how important protecting your privacy is and adhere to the Data Protection Act.

What data do you collect?

Upon registration with one of our practices, we will collect a range of essential personal data about you and your pet(s). This will only be used by us and is not shared with third parties.

The only exception to this is the VetCompass scheme, which is run by the Royal Veterinary College. VetCompass is dedicated to learning from current veterinary experience of our pets and using this knowledge to improve understanding for the pets of the future. All client data sent by us for this scheme is aggregated and anonymised. However, we understand if you might wish to opt out of the scheme. If this is the case, please let your practice know. For more information on the scheme, please visit our Vet Compass page.

What will you send me and when?

We send all newly registered clients a copy of our terms and conditions. This requirement is set out by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS).

Any further communications will depend largely on your selected preferences. Most clients opt to receive reminders for booster vaccinations and other health-related issues.

We may also send you general information to keep you informed, such as a change in opening hours, as well as carefully selected promotions and newsletters which we consider to be relevant and useful to you and your pets.

The frequency of any communications will also depend on your own preferences. Please let us know how many communications you wish to receive from us and we will regulate accordingly.
