What personally identifiable information is collected by Service Dog Training School and what is the purpose of the processing?

When you visit our website, you may provide us with personal information (such as name, email address, address, telephone numbers and/or credit/debit card information) that you knowingly choose to disclose, which is collected on an individual basis for various purposes that includes:
registering to receive email newsletters or other materials;

This means that you can visit our site anonymously, or revealing any personally identifiable information about yourself.

The way we use information

When you supply information about yourself for a specific purpose, we use the information for only that purpose (such as to provide the service, the merchandises or information you have requested).

For example, you may be asked to give us individual information to receive service or to purchase merchandise. The categories of personal data captured may be personal data in the form of your home address, contact details but also any special category data such as health data (but only if this is relevant).

Similarly, we use information you provide about yourself or someone else when placing a merchandise order only to provide tax compliant receipts, ship the merchandise and to confirm shipping.

We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that order.

You can register with our website if you would like to receive updates on our new projects and services or on our merchandise. Information you submit on our website or over the phone will not be used for this purpose unless you ‘opt-in’ specifically.

We use return email addresses to answer the email we receive, to receipt any transactions, or if follow-up for that specific function is required.

Service Dog Training School International does not sell, rent, give away, or share its email addresses or other personal contact information with outside sources. Service Dog Training School International also does not send mailings on behalf of other organizations.

Should any material changes be made to the ways in which we use personally identifiable information, Service Dog Training School International will take commercially reasonable measures to obtain written or email consent from you. We will also post the changes to our use of personally identifiable information on our website at least 30 days prior to a change.
