Your Information - what we collect and how we use it


Dogs Trust Promotions collects information which enables us to process your order. This will normally include your name, contact information such as address, email and telephone number. Plus your payment details and gift aid status. We promise to only ever share your information with Dogs Trust Worldwide and Dogs Trust Ireland.

We also like to find out about your personal motivation for supporting us or your experience as a supporter. This will help us to give you the information about products and services most relevant to you. In some instances, we may carry out analysis of the personal information that you have provided to us and add publicly available information to help us tailor our communications to you. This could include information on your interests, preferences and the level of any potential donations and can help us to improve our service and manage our contact with you in an appropriate way.

If you have given us your consent, we will contact you with information on our latest campaigns and fundraising activities. This may be by post, email, telephone or text message, depending on the information you have provided and your preferences. We will also ask about your marketing preferences, to ensure that you are still happy to be contacted by us and by which means.

From time to time we may contact you to ensure that the information you have provided us with remains accurate and up to date. In some circumstances we may use external data lists to avoid misdirecting our communications with you.

To help us communicate the work we are doing and provide these services we use trusted service providers including fundraising agencies, electronic marketing agencies and direct mailing providers.

In some circumstances it is necessary for Dogs Trust Promotions to give relevant staff at our service providers access to your personal information.

We require all service providers to comply with strict rules to protect the information you have given us.

How our website works


When you have completed your order, your web browser will be connected directly to our secure server. You can see that the connection is secure by looking at the padlock or key icon in the bottom left hand corner of your browser. Your browser may also alert you to the fact that you are connecting to a secure server, and if so, it will also tell you when you are closing the secure connection once you have paid. This is for your information only.

Our secure server communicates with your browser using SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) protocols, so that all your personal information, including credit card number and your name and address, is encrypted. This process takes the words and figures you enter, and converts them into bits of code that are then securely transmitted over the internet.
