Data protection is very important for DoggieBag and we wish to be transparent in how we treat your personal information. It is important to us that your personal information is handled in a safe and secure fashion. Below, we state which personal information is gathered and how it is used. Additionally, we list your rights in connection to the use of your personal information.
When an account is created with us, you grant us access to information about you in the form of your name, date of birth, e-mail, phone number and shipping address. The rules of data protection are established in order to inform you about what information is gathered, why it is gathered and how you can update, manage, export and delete the information about you that we have stored.
DoggieBag will manage the personal information you supply us with and are responsible for that information according to current legislation on data protection and privacy.
The purpose of our information gathering is to properly deliver and further improve upon our services. We are also required by law to maintain documentation of sales in connection with accounting and in managing any warranties and return shipments.
Personal information will be used to create your personal account with us in order to provide you with an individual and relevant experience with DoggieBag. This will enable a seamless experience regardless of the platform you use to connect with us, whether it’s through a personal computer, mobile phone or a tablet.
By storing information on your shopping cart (in our online store), we can provide you with better support and relevant product recommendations. It also lets you easily retrieve your shopping cart on a different platform (by logging into your account) or return to the shopping cart at a later time without having to search for those items again.
We also collect data related to navigation and browsing on our site in order to improve functionality and services.
The information you provide
Should you wish to shop at DoggieBag, we will collect and store the information you provide us with. That information covers:
This information is voluntarily provided but is required in order to properly deliver the merchandise and contact you regarding your order if necessary.
Should you choose to charge your order to a card, this will be handled by our partner Nets. Nets is one of Europe’s largest providers of payment terminals both online and in physical stores.
Your card information is sent directly to Nets and does not pass through our server. Nets provides us with a partial of your card number and a so-called PAN hash which functions as a unique link to your card. When we charge your card, our system will state to charge this specific PAN hash for an X amount. The partial of the card number (e.g. 4925 99** **** 9999) will let you identify which card you have registered. This is a standardised and safe practice which minimises risk.
When ordering one of our subscription services, and wish to pay by card, that card will be saved automatically as this is a necessity for providing this service.
When contacting customer service or otherwise communicating with us some other way, the information you provide will be collected in relation to that contact. Be aware that information about your client (e.g. e-mail provider) is also included.
Usually, this will be the information collected:
DoggieBag collects all digital communication, for instance on Facebook, e-mail and similar platforms. This will allow us to provide better service and to make it easier for more than one more than one customer service representative to help a single customer.
The information you provide may also be used in our internal systems testing. This is to make sure our systems work the way they are supposed to.
