Who we are
The RSPCA is the leading animal welfare charity. It has been established since 1824 and works to prevent cruelty, promote kindness towards and alleviate suffering of animals, by all lawful means - there is more information about our constitution.
The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is a charity and body incorporated by statute (registered charity number 219099) ("RSPCA"). We also have:-
our subsidiary charitable company, Freedom Food Ltd known as RSPCA Assured (registered charity numbers 1059879 and SC038199 (Scotland) and registered company number 02723670) ("RSPCA Assured"), which is responsible for our farm animal welfare labelling and assurance scheme.
our local branches and affiliated charities who deliver localised animal welfare services throughout England and Wales. Our branches work to RSPCA welfare standards but are separately registered charities in their own right and have their own privacy policies.
The RSPCA, RTL and RSPCA Assured are each registered with the Information Commissioner as Data Controllers under the Data Protection Act 2018.
This Privacy Notice explains how the RSPCA and RTL use personal information. All references to 'we', 'us' or 'our' in this notice refer to both the charity and trading company. RSPCA Assured has a separate privacy notice.
