As with all websites, we collect personal information from you when you visit horsecenta.com. We use this information to make your horse shopping experience as easy and enjoyable as possible. We need it to process your requests, inform you of any horses or planning schedules or problems and occasionally to send you special offers and promotions.
The information we collect is:
Your name – so we know what to call you
Email address – so we can email you about your requests, horses you are maybe interested in, special offers etc. You can unsubscribe at any time. Please allow 10 days for you request to be updated across all our systems.
Telephone number – so we can text or call you with details about your request or where we have a question
The kind of horses are you interested in – so we know what kind of horses we can contact you about
Your available budget – so we know what you want to spend on your new horse and what range of horses we can contact you about
We use the latest secure server technology to ensure this information is protected to the highest standards. We use encryption to safeguard your credit card information and only accept orders from web browsers that permit communication through Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. Most web browsers above version three support this security. This encryption makes it virtually impossible for unauthorised parties to read any information that you send us. The encryption technique we use is the highest standard available and certified by VeriSign, the world’s most respected certification body for Internet firms.
There are only two circumstances where we may share some of your data with others:
In the unlikely event that our business assets are ever sold to or purchased by another company. (Our data records are part of our business).
To outside research companies whom we may ask to contact you directly for your opinions on our products and services (in which case we provide them with only the information they need to perform their function).
RD Horses For Sale will send you from time to time catalogues, special offers and promotions by email. If you do not wish to receive any further email messages from us, (and we quite understand if you don’t, but remember that if you unsubscribe we will not be able to send you Sale details before anyone else)
