What we will contact you about
There are two types of communication you might receive from us, transactional emails and marketing emails.
Transactional emails are things like:
- Telling you that your order was successful
- Alerting you that there was a problem with your payment
- To let you know your order is on its way
- To tell you if a refund has been processed
Marketing emails include:
- Special offers
- Telling you about new initiatives which might benefit you, such as loyalty or refer a friend offer
- Tips on health, behaviour, happiness of your pet (including cute photos)
- News to help you make informed choices on the best choices for your pet
- To ask for your feedback
- To tell you about a competition
We will make sure that our contact with you is relevant, based on the information you give us.
Your contact preferences
We will only contact you with your consent.
You can opt out at any time from just marketing emails or from both marketing and transactional emails. But remember, if you opt out of marketing emails, you will miss out on offers, the chance to earn commission from our ‘Refer a friend’ scheme and if you opt out of all emails then we won’t be able to let you know when your delivery is coming or if there is a problem with your order.
You can change your preferences and opt out of emails via your account. Or you can re-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
If your details change, please let us know so we can continue to stay in touch.
Your payment security
We take our payment security responsibilities very seriously and make every effort to ensure your transaction is secure. Our site uses high level SSL encryption technology which is the most advanced security software currently available for online transactions.
You can see evidence of our security credentials if you look in the address bar in your browser. You will notice a small padlock and https (rather than just http) before www.parcelpet.com.
This is how you can tell our website is using secure technology.
At the point of payment, you are transferred to a secure page on the website to a reputable payment service provider. That page may be dressed in our “livery”, but it is not controlled by us. Our employees and contractors never have access to it. This means that we never have direct access to your payment details, unless you make a purchase via our customer services team.
If you do choose to ring our customer services team to make a purchase on your behalf, we will enter your payment details into our website directly, without recording them anywhere else.
We will not transfer your information outside the EEA (European Economic Area) without your consent.
