Your rights


How long we store personal information: We will retain your personal information for only as long as necessary to fulfill the identified purposes, or to fulfill our legal and business obligations. We are required to keep records of clients and training sessions for a period of three years from the date of each training session or consultation.


How we protect your personal information: We use browser encryption and firewalls as necessary. We will digitize and shred any personal information provided physically on paper. All personal information stored digitally will be protected by password and/or biometrics.


While we take all reasonable precautions to ensure that user data is secure and that users are protected, there always remains the risk of harm. The Internet as a whole can be insecure at times and therefore we are unable to guarantee the security of your personal information beyond what is reasonably practical.


How to access, modify or delete the data we collect: If you would like to know if we have collected your personal information, how we have used your personal information, if we have disclosed your personal information, or if you would like your personal information to be deleted or modified in any way, please contact us at Where withdrawing consent for the use or retention of your personal information would affect our ability to provide dog training services, we will advise you of this fact in writing.


How to opt out of marketing emails: In addition to the above, you can opt out of the use of your personal information for marketing emails by clicking “Unsubscribe” at the bottom of automated marketing emails, or replying to any personally generated emails with your request.




This Privacy Policy may be amended from time to time in order to maintain compliance with the law and to reflect any changes to the data collection process. We recommend that you periodically review our Privacy Policy to ensure that you are notified of any updates. If necessary, we will notify you by email of changes to this Privacy Policy.
