Who we are

CatsandKittensNI is a site dedicated to adopting and rehoming cats and kittens in Northern Ireland.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

User Accounts

If you choose to register for the site in order to place an ad or mark favorites, we require a username, and your email address. This is to enable you to log into the site and use the services, and to receive emails from site visitors who are interested in adopting your cat.

Your email address will not be displayed on the site unless you are marking the sale as commercial or rescue centre.

Additional Ad Information

We also ask for a (rough) address so that visitors know where you are. We recommend a postcode value at most. In order to protect individuals, we recommend that you do not post your phone number unless you specifically want to receive phone calls.


When you upload images to the website when placing an ad, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Contact Forms

If you are posting ads on the site, you will receive emails from CatsandKittensNI on behalf of a website visitor who has expressed interested in the cat. The visitor will not know your email address unless you choose to reply.

If you are a visitor and you fill out the form, the ad poster will be supplied your name and email address. This is to allow the poster to reply to you. Your phone number is not required, although you may provide it if you wish to be contacted via phone.


If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an ad, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the ID of the ad you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

Ads on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Who we share your data with

We do not share your data with anyone, but we must make it clear that as above in the “Contact Forms” section, when you fill out a form on an ad, you are sending the data in that form to the ad poster.

How long we retain your data

For users that register on our website, we store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their own personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
