ABRAR Privacy Policy

  1. Introduction

Adam Bailey Rescues and Rehomes (ABRAR) is committed to respecting your privacy. The purpose of this Privacy Policy is to explain how we will use any personal data we collect about you, the rights you have over any personal data we hold about you, and to tell you about the policies and procedures that we have in place to respect your privacy and keep your personal information safe and secure.

This privacy policy applies to you if you have been in contact with ABRAR, entered into a foster care contract or adoption contract with ABRAR, provided personal information in order to make a donation to the rescue, contacted us by email, provided your personal details on our website, or interacted with us on social media, via Messenger.


1.1 Who we are

Adam Bailey Rescues and Rehomes (ABRAR) is a Not For Profit organisation based in Dorset. We are a non-destruct, foster based rescue. Our aim is to assist in the safe and successful rescue and rehoming of any animal whose needs we are able to meet, and to provide a safe haven for those that cannot be re-homed.


We may amend this privacy notice from time to time. If we do so, we will make a copy of the amended privacy notice available to you.


1.2 How the law protects you

We are committed to protecting and respecting your personal data and privacy. This privacy and cookie policy relates to our use of any personal data we collect from you from any of our services. Whenever you provide such information, we are legally obliged to use your information in line with all applicable laws concerning the protection of personal data.

As well as this Privacy Policy, your privacy is protected by law. The General Data Protection Regulation (‘GDPR’) that comes into force on 25 May 2018 ensures that we use your personal information only if we have a proper reason to do so.

The law says we must have one or more of these reasons for using your data:

⬤ To fulfil a contract we have with you to provide our services

⬤ Where it is our legal duty

⬤ When it is in our legitimate interest

⬤ When you consent to the use of the data

A legitimate interest is when we have a business or commercial reason to use your information. But even then, it must not unfairly go against what is right and best for you. If we rely on our legitimate interest, we will tell you what that is.
