New data regulations will affect all of business including veterinary surgeries. We have to store clients name, addresses, contact details to function as a veterinary clinic. It allows us to contact you wrt booster reminders, our pet health club members and if your animal is here for surgery. We also sometimes have offers for products which we like to offer to all our clients.
So what is happening…..GDPR is ….
You might have heard that the Data protection act is being replaced May 25th 2018 to the General Protection Data Regulation. Under new regulations, companies must keep a thorough record of how and when an individual gives consent to store and use their personal data. At Emscote Vets we are adhering to these new regulations by asking all clients that come in to the surgery to fill in a GDPR form. We ask you to say ” yes” you are happy for us to hold your information on our system so we can keep your animals files on our records.
We would kindly ask that if you haven’t been into the surgery recently then would you pop in and fill one of the forms
follow this link to the form, print it out , sign and return it to the surgery to attach to your pets file.
