Collection and Handling of Personal Information
Golden Retriever Rescue (GRR) recognises that it is necessary to collect some personal information about those people surrendering their dogs,
those applying to adopt a dog. This assists in confirmation of registered ownership, identification of the dog, and for the purposes of assessing
the potential new home for suitability.
GRR is mindful that people have a right to privacy and anonymity to the general public in regard to the surrendering or adoption of Golden
Retrievers. We also have a duty of care to those who foster and adopt rescued Golden Retrievers to ensure that they are safe from harassment
or harm, as far as reasonably practicable, in the unlikely event that an owner who surrenders their dog becomes agitated and decides to try to
get in contact.
To this end, GRR will only collect and retain the minimum personal information required to conduct our business and therefore
- only collect personal information that is relevant to the business of GRR, which is to receive surrendered Golden
Retrievers, and responsibly place dogs into appropriate foster homes and new forever homes once they are available.
- not disclose personal information about the person surrendering their dog to any party, to protect their right to
privacy and anonymity.
- not disclose personal information about the person adopting the dog to any party, to protect their right to privacy
- only disclose the details of foster carers or GRR volunteers with their consent, and only in circumstances where it
is the most practical option, for example, putting a foster carer and an approved new owner in touch with each other to
facilitate the re-homing of a Golden Retriever.
