This may include the following information;

Third party information

We may also collect third party information such as the name of a gift recipient for whom you have purchased a gift. We will assume that you have the necessary permission to provide these details. In relation to our adoption gift packs the name of the third party will be displayed on public boards at the relevant animal enclosures and again we will assume you have the necessary permission to provide the recipient’s name for this purpose.

We promise to store the information we hold on you in secure third party systems or in accordance with the suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures we have put in place to safeguard and secure the information we collect through our website and through other contact with our organisation. In many instances we will delete this information once it has been processed but we will not keep it for longer than five years unless you continue to remain subscribed to our databases.
