We've created a community where Veterinarians can share their insights and make better purchasing decisions. In doing so, we interface with many different services, and collect and store information necessary for the effective use of the platform. This policy describes what information we collect and how it is used and shared.
Depending on which Services you use, we collect different kinds of information about your business, company, clinic, group, or other entity you represent, as well as information about you, our user.
We are passionate about creating the safest and most enriching experience possible for our users. We use all of the information we have to help us provide and support our Services. Here’s how:
Some information you provide with the intent of sharing on Vetcove is collected, stored, and shared with other Vetcove users, including the following:
In a few select circumstances, information may be shared with parties outside of Vetcove to provide, improve, or preserve the integrity of our Services:
As of this document’s publishing, Vetcove does not share any information with any third-party partners aside from the systems of those third-party suppliers whose accounts you have connected to Vetcove, as mentioned in the previous section.
However, in the future Vetcove may work with third party companies to help us provide and improve our Services or who use advertising or related products, which makes it possible to operate our company and provide free services to veterinarians around the world. Here are the types of third parties we may, at some point in the future, share information with about you:
You can manage the content and information you share when you use Vetcove through your Account Settings. You’ll be able to see a history of all reviews you’ve written or commented on, as well as questions you’ve asked and answered. You’ll also be able to disconnected third-party supplier accounts you’ve connected to Vetcove.
We store data for as long as it is necessary to provide products and services to you and others, including those described above. Information associated with your account will be kept until your account is deleted, unless we no longer need the data to provide products and services.
You can delete your account any time by contacting us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. When you delete your account, we may delete or anonymize things you have posted, such as your reviews or Q&A activity. If you do not want to delete your account, but want to temporarily stop using Vetcove, you may stop using Vetcove at any time, and your account information will be preserved.
We may access, preserve and share your information in response to a legal request (like a search warrant, court order or subpoena) if we have a good faith belief that the law requires us to do so. This may include responding to legal requests from jurisdictions outside of the United States where we have a good faith belief that the response is required by law in that jurisdiction, affects users in that jurisdiction, and is consistent with internationally recognized standards. We may also access, preserve and share information when we have a good faith belief it is necessary to: detect, prevent and address fraud and other illegal activity; to protect ourselves, you and others, including as part of investigations. For example, we may provide information to third-party partners about the reliability of your account to prevent fraud and abuse on and off of our Services. Information we receive about you, including financial transaction data related to purchases made with Vetcove if and when such services are offered by Vetcove may be accessed, processed, and retained for an extended period of time when it is the subject of a legal request or obligation, governmental investigation, or investigations concerning possible violations of our terms or policies, or otherwise to prevent harm. We also may retain information from accounts disabled for violations of our terms for at least a year to prevent repeat abuse or other violations of our terms.
We’ll notify you when we make any material changes to this policy by email and/or public announcement to give you a chance to thoroughly review the changes before continuing use of our Services.
