How does Dogs Trust use cookies?

Your IP information

When you log on to our website, your IP (Internet Protocol) address registers on our servers. Your IP address reveals no information other than the number assigned to you. We use this information only to monitor traffic on our website.


At Dogs Trust, we categorise our cookies into four different types. We explain the types below and the specific cookies that we use on the website. Cookies can also be categorised as ‘first party’ or ‘third party’.

Website Security

We maintain a high level of physical and electronic security to keep your data safe. We use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information given over the internet. All your personal information, including credit card numbers, bank account details and 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

Your payments via debit or credit card are passed securely to our payment processing partner. We are currently implementing Payment Card Industry Standard Security.

While we make every reasonable effort to ensure that information sent to us is done so securely, we cannot warrant the security of information transmitted to us through the internet. When you transmit information to us via the internet, you do so at your own risk.


Some service emails like invoices have no tracking. We do track other emails at an individual level, for example to see whether the email has been opened or clicked on. We only use this information to understand open and click rates on our emails to try and improve them and the content you receive from us.
