Who we are

OUR DOGS is the world's only weekly canine newspaper.
We have been covering the world of dog shows and show dogs since 1895.
OUR DOGS is a digest of news, events and happenings in the world of show dogs and is essential reading for anyone who is serious about pedigree dogs.

types of data we collect

Every time a user visits our website, web analytics software provided by a third party generates an anonymous analytics cookie. These cookies can tell us whether or not you've visited the site before. Your browser will tell us if you have these cookies, and if you don't, we generate new ones. This allows us to track how many individual unique users we have, and how often they visit the site. Unless you are signed into ourdogs.co.uk, these cookies cannot be used to identify individuals; they are used for statistical purposes only. This allows us, for example, to tell which pages are the most visited at any one time.

It allows us to be more efficient. We can learn what information is important to our visitors, and what isn't. We can discard Web pages you don't use, and focus our efforts on information you need.

When you sign in as a member of Our Dogs we generate cookies that represent whether you are signed in or not.

There are also third-party cookies such as the media sharing buttons (twitter, facebook) on some pages which will make a record when you tweet or like a page.

We also have some advertising cookies that register when an advert has been clicked. Again this is for statistical purposes only. It does not say who has clicked the advert just that it has been clicked.

How we use your personal data
OUR DOGS takes your privacy very seriously and will never disclose, share or sell your data without your consent; unless required to do so by law. We only retain your data for as long as is necessary and for the purposes specified in this notice. Where you have consented to us providing you with promotional offers and marketing, you are free to withdraw this consent at any time. The purposes and reasons for processing your personal data are detailed below:
We collect your personal data in the performance of a contract or to provide a service and to ensure that orders are completed and can be sent out to your preferred address. We will occasionally send you marketing information where we have assessed that it is beneficial to you as a customer and in our interests. Such information will be non-intrusive and is processed on the grounds of legitimate interests.

Legitimate interests
As noted above in the 'How We Use Your Personal Data' section of this notice, we occasionally process your personal information under the legitimate interests' legal basis. Where this is the case, we have carried out a thorough Legitimate Interests' Assessment (LIA) to ensure that we have weighed your interests and any risk posed to you against our own interests; ensuring that they are proportionate and appropriate.

How long do we keep your data?
OUR DOGS only retain personal information for as long as is necessary and we have strict review and retention policies in place to meet these obligations. We are required under UK tax law to keep your basic personal data (name, address, contact details) for a minimum of 6 years after which time it will be destroyed.
Where you have consented to us using your details for direct marketing, we will keep such data until you notify us otherwise and/or withdraw your consent.
