Information we receive from other sources: we may combine this information with information you give to us and information we collect about you. We may use this information and the combined information for the purposes set out above (depending on the types of information we receive).


Data protection laws require that we meet certain conditions before we are allowed to use your data in the manner described in this Privacy Policy. We take our responsibilities under data protection laws extremely seriously, including meeting these conditions. To use your personal data, we will rely on the following conditions, depending on the activities we are carrying out:


Compliance with legal obligations: As an entity established under the laws of Ireland, Ollie’s Pet Boutique is obliged to comply with Irish laws and guidance provided by Irish regulatory bodies. In particular, we will need to process your personal information to verify your identity, your source of funds for anti-money laundering and fraud purposes, and to establish whether you have been barred from using our site due to objectionable behaviour. You will not be able to object to processing or ask the deletion of your personal information insofar as it fails under this category.


Necessary for the entry into / performance of a contract: When you enter into a transaction with us, a contract between you and us will have been entered into. In order for us to fulfil our obligations under that contract (e.g. to allow you to purchase goods from us), we will need to collect and process your personal information. Failure to provide the requisite personal information on sign-up and financial information on entering into the transaction or objecting to this type of processing / exercising your deletion rights will unfortunately mean we cannot provide our goods / services to you.


Consent: We may send you marketing messages by email and targeted ads about us, our Sites, our services and/or our partners where you have not unsubscribed and where you have bought goods or other services from us. We provide easy ways to stop our marketing, and you can opt out at any time in every mail out.


If you are not a customer of ours but have provided us with consent to use your details for marketing purposes, then we may also contact you about our events, goods and services.


If you have confirmed that you would like to hear directly from a third party (including other members of our group) about such party’s goods and services then we will share your details with such third party so they can contact you about their goods and services.


In each of the situations above, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time and can object to processing of this nature. Where you consent to us sending you marketing information will retain your information for as long as your subscription/blog article is active or as needed to provide you services. We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes and enforce our agreements.


Legitimate interests: To use your personal data for any other purpose described in this Privacy Policy, we will rely on a condition known as "legitimate interests". It is in our legitimate interests to collect your personal data as it provides us with the information that we need to provide our services to you more effectively. Effectively, this requires us to carry out a balancing test of our interests in using your personal data (for example, in order to provide you with the information and services that you request from us), against the interests you have as a citizen and the rights you have under data protection laws (for example, to not have your data sold to third party marketing companies without your knowledge, or not store your personal data in insecure or unstable countries or regions). The outcome of this balancing test will determine whether we can use your personal data in the ways described in this Privacy Policy (except in relation to certain marketing activities, where we will always rely on your explicit consent). We will always act reasonably and give full and proper consideration to your interests in carrying out this balancing test.


When your data is no longer required for the purposes listed above, we will delete it within the periods set out below:

− Information relating to your purchase: we may keep your personal information for up to 7 years, to enable us to retain the information we may require for legal and regulatory purposes.
− Internal records including name, address, contact details, pet details & home access details will be kept for 1 year from ceasing services.
− Newsletter consents will kept as long as your subscription is active;
− Comment consent will be kept as long as the article is still active;


We may share your personal information with any member of our group (which means our subsidiaries, Ollie’s Petcare & Ollie & Penny).

We will only share your personal information with other members of the group and third party service providers if it is necessary or reasonably required for any of the purposes listed above/ below.

We will only disclose your information to:

− third party suppliers and service providers to the extent they assist the group with its legal / regulatory obligations e.g. providers of services in respect of anti-money laundering, fraud, verification etc.;
− analytics and search engine providers that assist us in the improvement and optimisation of our site and other selected third parties; and
− your employer, educational institution (e.g. school, college or university), email or internet provider, parents (if you are under the age of 18) or law enforcement agencies, or other appropriate third parties, where we consider your behaviour to be unlawful, offensive, inappropriate or objectionable at an event, or on our site.


We may also disclose your personal information to third parties:

− if we are under a duty to disclose or share your personal data in order to comply with any legal obligation;
− in the event that we consider selling or buying any business or assets or merge or enter into a joint venture with another business entity in which case we will disclose your personal data to any prospective sellers or buyers of such business or assets;
− in the event of an insolvency situation;
− in order to enforce or apply our Terms of Use and Terms of Sale or other agreements; or
− to protect our rights, our property, our visitors, or others.


All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers or (in the case of payment information) those of our secure payment provider. Internal records are kept in our secure home office under lock & key with no connection between name, address and keys. Where our suppliers are based outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”) the data that we collect from you may be transferred to, or stored at, a destination outside the EEA. This includes staff engaged in, among other things, the processing of your payment details and the provision of support services. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk.
