Privacy Policy

Last updated on October 18th, 2023

Welcome to Vetcove! We are excited to have you here, and we hope that you are equally as excited to learn about how we protect personal information shared with us from our business partners. Just like how our furry friends depend on their trusted veterinarians to keep them healthy and happy, we want you to trust us with any personal information or business information you may supply to us. We are committed to being trans-paw-rent about our privacy practices and to giving you control over how your information is collected, used, and shared.

This Privacy Policy and Notice ("Privacy Policy") covers all uses of our business-to-business procurement platform and corresponding mobile application (collectively, "Procurement Platform"), along with the use of a veterinary customer’s home delivery platform powered by us ("HD Platform") by individuals in the veterinary industry who have a business relationship with us and more specifically:

  • Our veterinary customers such as veterinary clinics and animal hospitals ("Veterinary Customers") who use our Procurement Platform and related services;
  • Product manufacturers, compounders or other vendors and suppliers ("Vendors") who use our Procurement Platform and related services; and
  • Our Veterinary Customers who use the HD Platform and related services in order to sell veterinary products to their pet parent clients.

As used in this Privacy Policy, "Platforms" refers to the Procurement Platform and HD Platform. "Services" refers to the aforementioned services related to the Platforms.

Please read this Privacy Policy carefully to understand the personal information we collect, how we use it, and the choices available to you. If you do not agree to this Privacy Policy, please do not use the Platforms or Services.

1. Scope

1.1. Jurisdiction and Applicable Laws

Vetcove does not have any locations outside of the United States ("U.S"), nor do we offer products or services, including purchase of any products through the Platforms, outside of the U.S. As our products and services are intended for U.S. businesses and U.S. residents only, please do not attempt to use the Platforms or Services if you are located outside of the U.S.

"Privacy Laws" as used in this Privacy Policy refers to the U.S. privacy laws currently in force, and that are binding upon us and applicable to you, which may include the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018, as amended by the California Privacy Rights Act of 2020 (“CCPA”) where you are a California resident. If you are a California resident, please review the California Supplement included below.

“Personal Information” as used in this Privacy Policy means information which identifies, relates to, describes, references, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular individual or household, as defined under the Privacy Laws as ‘personal information,’ ‘personal data,’ ‘personally identifiable information,’ or the like; however, it does not apply to: (a) publicly available information from government records; and (b) de-identified and aggregated information.

As used herein, the term “End Users” refers to those employees, agents, contractors or other authorized users of a Veterinary Customer or Vendor who use the Platforms or Services and who have an established business relationship with us. The term “Consumer” as used in this Privacy Policy means a natural person, and includes End Users.

1.2. Out-of-Scope

Please note that information collected and used outside of what is stated in the above paragraphs is considered outside the scope of this Privacy Policy. For example, this Privacy Policy does not cover the following:

  • Information from individuals who use the HD Platform directly as an individual Consumer for browsing and purchasing from their clinic. The consumer privacy policy posted on the applicable HD Platform governs the collection and use of Consumer’s information when using such HD Platform.
  • Your information collected directly from Vendors or other third parties, even where the information collected is in connection with your use of the Platforms or Services. The applicable Vendor’s or other third party’s privacy policy covers the collection and use of information submitted by you to the Vendor, on or through the Vendor’s platform, or to the respective third party.
  • Business information that may be considered confidential or sensitive, but that is not Personal Information; for example, the credit card number for a veterinary practice. Handling of such confidential and sensitive business information may be covered under a separate services agreement that we have with our Veterinary Customer or the entity that represents them (such as corporate hospital groups).

1.3. Minors

The Platforms and Services are not intended for children under eighteen (18) years of age. No one under the age of 18 may provide any information to, on, or through the Platforms or Services. We do not knowingly collect Personal Information from children under 18. If we learn we have collected or received Personal Information from a child under 18, we will delete that information. If you believe we might have any information from or about a child under 18, please contact us using any of the contact methods in the Contact Us section

2. Information We Collect

The information we collect about you depends on the Platforms and Services you use, how you use them, and the information you provide to us. Depending on which Platform(s) and Services you use, we collect different types of information about your business, company, clinic, group, or other entity you represent, as well as information about you, our End User.

We collect information in three main ways: (1) information you provide directly to us; (2) information we collect automatically through technology when you use the Platforms and Services; and (3) information we collect from other sources.

For example, we collect information directly from you when you create or use a Vetcove account, participate in Vetcove surveys or research, purchase products and interact with the Services, engage with us through our sales and marketing efforts, or communicate and interact with us.

Some of the most common categories of Personal Information we collect directly from End Users include:

  • Contact and account information, such as your name, email address, login credentials, and your business contact information and title/role. For veterinarians submitting prescriptions via the HD Platform, we may also collect certain identifying information, including for example your veterinary license number, your signature, and/or a unique PIN number.
  • Customer service interaction information, such as messages submitted to us through online forms or email, and summaries, transcriptions or voice recordings of interactions with our customer service personnel. For End Users associated with Veterinary Customers that use the HD Platform, we may also collect communications and conversations with clients to or through the HD Platform and related Services. For End Users associated with Veterinary Customers on our Procurement Platform, we may also collect information from you when you submit forms, provide information or responses in discussion forums, or otherwise communicate or interact with us.
  • Information related to loyalty programs, redemption campaigns, sweepstakes, including information needed for you to participate in, and for us to fulfill, your prize or participation incentives (if any).

The Platforms utilize cookies to enhance overall shopping experience by retaining information about which items have been added to carts and collecting general data on traffic and interactions on the websites. This data is used to improve the Platforms’ functionality, and to ensure that we are offering the best experience and tools to our End Users (including you!). For information on how to disable cookies, please see Section 6 (Your Rights and Choices), below.

We use third-party analytics services on the Procurement Platform and related Services to better understand End User online activity. These service providers collect information about End User’s use of our Procurement Platform and related Services and other websites and online services over time through cookies, device identifiers, pixel tags, or other tracking technologies. We and our third-party providers use this information to, among other things, analyze and track data, determine the popularity of particular content, and deliver advertisements based on your interests on our Procurement Platform, as well as to provide services to us, such as reporting, analytics, and market research.

2.3. Information We Collect from Other Sources

  • To facilitate mergers and acquisitions, such as to evaluate or conduct a merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution, or other sale or transfer of some or all of our assets, whether as a going concern or as part of bankruptcy, liquidation, or similar proceeding, in which personal information is held by us about users of the Platforms and Services is among the assets transferred.

We will ask for your consent to process your Personal Information for such purpose in accordance with applicable legal requirements. We will not collect additional categories of Personal Information or use the Personal Information we collected for materially different, unrelated, or incompatible purposes without providing you notice.

For the purposes discussed in this Privacy Policy, we may combine the Personal Information that we collect through the Services with information that we receive from other sources, both online and offline, and use such combined information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

4. How We Disclose Your Information

Vetcove may disclose Personal Information for a business purpose in the following ways:

  • Authorized third-party service providers. We use select third-party service providers to help us provide the Services and to operate our business. They provide a variety of services to us, including fulfillment, shipping and delivery, customer service, web hosting and design, payment processing, sales and marketing, data storage, analytics and related services, security, fraud prevention, research and legal, advising or consulting services. We share information with Vendors and our fulfillment partners for the purpose of ensuring the delivery of the purchased product or requested services. For the HD Platform, this includes, but is not limited to, sharing Personal Information of the prescribing veterinarian with our pharmacy partners for fulfilling orders to Consumers.
  • Vendors and other suppliers. We may disclose the information we collect about you to Vendors that have a business relationship with us, and whose products you purchase through the Platforms and Services. For example, for orders with Vendors through the Procurement Platform, we may share your account information, including, for example your veterinary license number, to the respective Vendor to process and ship the order, as well as to communicate directly with you for troubleshooting, order issues, errors or other investigations. For free samples, we may share your Personal Information with the Vendor providing those samples, so that the Vendor can communicate with you regarding your experience with their product(s).
  • Veterinary Customers. For End Users associated with a Veterinary Customer, this includes providing the owner or manager of the associated Veterinary Customer with information regarding redemption rewards or cashback redeemed by End Users; account information for modifying user access and permissions; clarifying or removing duplicate accounts; confirming the account information associated with a purchaser for certain orders placed on the Procurement Platform or prescriptions and orders generated through the HD Platform and related Services.
  • Legal purposes. We may disclose information we collect about you if required to do so by law or applicable regulations, or in a good faith belief that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to: (a) comply with legal process (for example, a subpoena or court order); (b) enforce our Terms of Use, this Privacy Policy, or other contracts with you, including investigation of potential violations; (c) respond to claims that any content violates the rights of third parties; or (d) protect the rights, property, or personal safety of us or others.
  • Regulatory purposes. At times, we may be required to share certain information with third parties in order to fulfill our regulatory obligations. This may include, but is not limited to, providing information to manufacturers for reporting adverse events, or to assist any of our manufacturer or vendor partners in the event that a product is recalled from the market. In addition, this may include providing information concerning the prescribing veterinarian with pharmacy partners for purposes of reporting orders of certain medications into state databases.
  • Business transfers. As we continue to develop our business, we may engage in transactions with other companies regarding the purchase or sale of a business. We may disclose your information to the extent necessary and under confidentiality obligations as part of, or in contemplation of, such transactions.

5. Security and Retention of Your Information

5.1. Security of Your Information

We will delete or de-identify information when it is no longer needed to fulfill these purposes unless a longer retention period is required to comply with applicable laws. The criteria we use to determine our retention periods include the following:

  • The length of time we have an ongoing relationship with you and provide the Platform and Services to you (for example, for as long as you have an account with us or continue using the Services).
  • Whether there is a legal obligation to which we are subject (for example, certain laws require us to keep records of your transactions for a certain period of time before we can delete them)
  • Whether retention is advisable considering our legal position (such as, for statutes of limitations, litigation, or regulatory investigations).

Subject to the foregoing, when you delete your account, we may delete or anonymize content you have posted on the Platforms, such as your reviews or Q&A activity

9. Additional Notes on Business Information

De-Identified Information. We may de-identify information we collect so the information cannot reasonably identify you, your device or your affiliated Veterinary Customer, or we may collect information that is already in a de-identified form. For example, we share data analytics, based on de-identified information, with our industry partners. This includes data such as total sales of a medication in a particular territory or region, or overall compliance or lapse with particular medications. Our use and disclosure of de-identified information is not subject to any restrictions under this Privacy Policy, and we may use and disclose it to others for any purpose, without limitation.

Business-to-Business Information. Vetcove may obtain business information directly from you, or from other third-party sources. For example, when a Veterinary Customer connects with a Vendor through the Procurement Platform, Vetcove may receive from the Vendor, or retrieve on the Veterinary Customer’s behalf and as the Veterinary Customer’s authorized agent, information about the Veterinary Customer’s prior purchases (including products, quantities, and frequency of prior orders at the clinic-level). Vetcove may also collect information regarding your affiliated Veterinary Clinic’s purchasing and purchasing trends at the clinic-level by virtue of End User’s use of the Procurement Platform. Vetcove may use or disclose such business information in the following ways:

  • Linked Vendors: Vetcove may use and disclose information that pertains to Veterinary Customers to facilitate supplier integrations on the Procurement Platform, including by sharing which items are added to or removed from carts, or changing desired quantities in shopping carts. Additionally, for products purchased from a particular Vendor, we may share with that Vendor clinic purchasing volume or sales volume for that Vendor’s products, in order to comply with contractual obligations or for marketing purposes. This may include sharing enrollment and participation in any cashback or loyalty programs, and the total amount of rewards or redemptions claimed on a per-clinic basis; sharing information for the purposes of determining eligibility for particular cashback or loyalty offers; providing reports to Vendors regarding order data for the Vendor’s products; and sharing information regarding past purchases and pricing of particular products with the manufacturing Vendor of those products in order to confirm pricing accuracy. Beyond confirming pricing for select products with the Vendor that manufactured those products, we will not share pricing information with any third parties (even if aggregated or de-identified). For non-direct checkout orders on our Procurement Platform, we may share the shipping and payment information associated with the Veterinary Customer with the applicable Vendor (and any third party service providers, including UPS or FedEx) in order to fulfill the order. For orders by Veterinary Customers through the HD Platform and related Services, we may also share information pertaining to the Veterinary Customer for fulfillment purposes.
  • Data Analytics: Vetcove may share data analytics, based on de-identified Veterinary Customer information, with Vendors and other industry partners. This information may include data such as total medication sales in a particular region, or rate of lapse for particular medications. The purpose of sharing this aggregated information is to identify market trends and to improve overall care provided to pets. In addition, we may share the fact that your affiliated Veterinary Customers conducts purchasing through the Procurement Platform, or otherwise uses the Platform and Services with (a) Vendors; or (b) in the event that your affiliated Veterinary Customer is associated with a larger corporate hospital group, with your associated corporate hospital group.

For business-to-business information that does not constitute Personal Information as defined herein, nothing in this Privacy Policy shall be deemed to limit Vetcove’s use or disclosure of such information, subject to the terms of any services or other agreement between Vetcove and the applicable third-party business

In addition, we do not use sensitive personal information (as defined under CCPA) for the purpose of inferring characteristics about a consumer, and as such in accordance with the CCPA, sensitive personal information will be treated as Personal Information under this Privacy Policy.
