Who we are and what these terms and conditions do
We are Tincomy Limited (trading under the registered business name “Equine MediRecord”), an Irish company, located at Eyrefield House, Eyrefield Road, Curragh, Co. Kildare R56 Pw01, Ireland (referred to as “we” or “us” or “Equine MediRecord” in these Terms). Our company registration number is 599476.
We are a company that specialises in providing solutions for the proper recording of medicines administered to racehorses and other bloodstock. We develop, sell and maintain a unique mobile application and website database which allows users to simplify administration and their Irish Horseracing Regulatory Board medical record compliance on their racing yard, stud or bloodstock farm. Acting with the full permission of our customers, we then provide this medical record compliance information to the various State, semi-State and private authorities — including the Irish Horseracing Regulatory Board, Horse Racing Ireland or The Thoroughbred Breeders’ Association — that are charged with regulating the health, wellbeing and medicines administered to racehorses and other bloodstock.
We may also process information regarding medicines administered to racehorses as provided by our customers, including by collating it into a collective, anonymised format for transmission to our commercial partners, including pharmaceutical and equine health companies. We may also collate the data into anonymised format in order to identify trends. We will never share any of your own personal information (such as name or contact details) to our partners.
