Provider of the service and the data controller for the processing of personal data:
- Principal areas of the service
Animal-Network is a service developed to make it easier and safer to be a animal/pet owner. Animal-Network is for all animal/pet owners and professionals whose job involves animals (veterinarians, trainers, clinics, etc.) and makes it possible to store and share data about all animals, such as adding personal notes, as well as making it possible to download the animal/pet’s medical records from a veterinarian. Animal-Network will be continuously updated and developed and additional functionality will be added on an ongoing basis. A user profile must be created to use Animal-Network.
A animal/pet owner can add one or more animals/pets to get a unique digital platform that gathers all the important information about each animal/pet. And the animal/pet’s owner can share the animals/pet’s ‘healthcare book’ with others as required (e.g. for care during holidays, by the veterinarian, etc.).
Veterinarians (clinics, etc.) can create a profile and update the animal/pet’s healthcare book, vaccination certificates, etc., and add important reminders for the animal/pet’s owner, such as upcoming physical check-ups, obedience/agility training, nail cutting, etc.
Profiles are personal and the user may only create one profile. The user is not allowed to forward another person’s e-mail address nor pose as someone else.
Animal-Network also contains a “network” where you can connect with friends, etc. – and make positive posts about animals. – to use this network, you must approve the “community rules” – see always applicable “community rules” here
