Privacy Statement

Protecting your privacy is important to us. Orivet Genetic Pet Care Limited and its subsidiaries undertake to comply at all times with the requirements of the Privacy Act 1988, the Privacy Amendment (Private Sector) Act 2000 and the SPAM Act 2003 of the Commonwealth of Australia and USA relevant law. Through your interactions with us, we may obtain some personal information about you. For example, if you subscribe to our updates, we collect your name and contact details. If you participate in any of the testing services our laboratory offers, we collect some personal details and may generate some personal genetic information for your pets. Your visitation to this website will also be monitored by us but this monitoring does not identify individual users. Accessing and correcting information under the Privacy Amendment Act 2000 you have rights of access to and correction of personal information that we hold. If you wish to exercise these rights please contact us. If you feel the information we have about you is inaccurate or incomplete we offer you the ability to correct or change the information at any time and as often as necessary. If you wish to be added or removed from any of our distribution lists please contact us. Due to the sensitive nature of genetic testing, access to results is strictly controlled and is subject to Orivet Genetic Pet Care’s Privacy Policy. Results of tests are only provided to those parties nominated at the time of the initial request. No information is provided to any other third party. We do not sell distribution lists or any personal information to third parties.

We use ‘cookies’ to allow us to monitor traffic patterns and to serve you more efficiently if you revisit this website. A cookie does not identify you personally but may identify your computer. You can use your Internet browser to notify you when you receive a cookie and this will allow you to accept or reject it. If you choose not to accept a cookie, then this may mean you may not be able to take full advantage of this website.

We will endeavour to take all reasonable steps to keep secure any personal information which we hold about you, and to keep this personal information accurate and up to date. Your personal information is stored on secure servers that are protected in controlled facilities. We require our employees and data processors to respect the confidentiality of any personal information held by us. Unfortunately, no security system can be guaranteed to be 100% secure so we cannot give an absolute assurance that the personal information you provide to us will be secure at all times. We will not be held responsible for events arising from unauthorised access to your personal information. Please note also that we may use overseas facilities to process or back up its data which may contain your personal information. As a result, we may transfer your personal information to our overseas facilities for storage. However, this does not change any of our commitments to safeguard your privacy.

We take reasonable steps to preserve the security of personal information held by us. Your use of the internet and transmission of personal information via the internet is at your own risk. If you require a copy or have any questions about our privacy policies please contact us. Orivet Genetic Pet Care Limited reserves the right to amend its privacy policies without notice.

Information We Collect

We generally collect the following information:

  • Information we receive when you use our Services.
  • Information you share directly with us.
  • Information from our DNA testing services.

How We Use Information

We generally process Personal Information for the following reasons:

  • To provide our Services.
  • To analyze and improve our Services.
  • For Orivet Research, with your consent.

Control: Your Choices

Orivet gives you the ability to share information in a variety of ways. You choose:

  • When and with whom you share your pet’s information, including friends, family members, health care professionals, or other individuals outside our Services, including through third party services that accept Orivet data and social networks.
  • To give or decline consent for Orivet Research. By agreeing to the Individual Data Sharing Consent Document, or participating in a Orivet Research Community you can give consent for the use of your individual data for scientific research purposes.
  • To delete your Orivet account and data, at any time.

Access To Your Information

Your Personal Information may be shared information in the following ways:

  • With our service providers, including our genotyping laboratory, as necessary for them to provide their services to us.
  • With research collaborators, only if you have given your explicit consent.

Orivet will not sell, lease, or rent your individual-level information to any third party or to a third party for research purposes without your explicit consent.

  • We do not share customer data with any public databases.
  • We will not provide any person’s or pet’s data to an insurance company or employer.
  • We will not provide information to law enforcement or regulatory authorities unless required by law to comply with a valid court order, subpoena, or search warrant for Personal Information.

How We Secure Information

  • Orivet implements measures and systems to ensure confidentiality, integrity, and availability of Orivet data. 
  • De-identification/Pseudonymization, encryption, and data segmentation. Registration Information is stripped from Sensitive Information, including genetic and phenotypic data. This data is then assigned a random ID so the person who provided the data cannot reasonably be identified. Orivet uses industry standard security measures to encrypt sensitive personal data both when it is stored (data-at-rest) and when it is being transmitted (data-in-flight). Additionally, data are segmented across logical database systems to further prevent re-identifiability.
  • Limiting access to essential personnel. We limit access of information to authorized personnel, based on job function and role. Orivet access controls include multi-factor authentication, single sign-on, and a strict least-privileged authorization policy.
  • Detecting threats and managing vulnerabilities. Orivet uses state of the art intrusion detection and prevention measures to stop any potential attacks against its networks. We have integrated continuous vulnerability scanning in our build pipeline and regularly engage third party security experts to conduct penetration tests
