Payments for raffle entries received after the closing date will not be entered and will be treated as a donation to PDSA.

We will use the personal data you supply in order to verify your age in accordance with our obligations under our operating licence issued by the Gambling Commission. We have a legal obligation to ensure the people who play and enjoy our lottery and raffle games are over the age of 16. (However, as part of our commitment to social responsibility we have increased the minimum age for our lotteries and raffles to 18). This means that we may use your personal data for the purposes of carrying out random age verification checks, either from information you have provided PDSA, or from using information available from a range of commercial, public, or open sources such as the edited electoral role.

PDSA is committed to protecting your personal information and will never exchange or sell your details to another organisation for their own marketing purposes. We would like to let you know about our work with sick and injured animals, including fundraising, volunteering, pet insurance, and animal welfare issues. To provide you with the best possible experience we will also use your personal information to help us decide what you may like to hear about and to personalise our advertising, communications, and services. If you’d like to ‘opt out’ of our marketing and fundraising communications call our friendly supporter services team on 0800 0199 166 or write to us at ‘Freepost PDSA’ and tell us your contact preferences.
