Data Protection

Imagining Natural Scotland are strongly committed to protecting the privacy of users of its interactive products and services as well as to respecting the Data Protection Acts 1984 and 1998. We do all that we can to protect information about participants and will never pass on individuals’ information to third parties.

The purpose of this privacy policy is to inform you, cover what kinds of information we may gather about you when you visit and register, how we may use that information, whether we disclose it to anyone, and the choices you have regarding our use of, and your ability to correct, the information.

In general, our site automatically gathers certain usage information like the numbers and frequency of visitors to the site and its pages. We only use such data in aggregate form. This collective data helps us determine how much visitors and participants use specific parts of our site, so we can improve its operation and appeal.

Information about specific users

This site requires registration to use its functions, such as posting a comment. At registration we specifically ask you for personal information. Certain information is mandatory – such as your name, valid email address, organisation, sector and password. We would also appreciate you filling out the rest of the registration form to enable us to conduct a thorough evaluation.

Disclosure

We do not use or disclose information about your individual visits to the site or information that you may give us, such as your name, address, email address, to any third parties.

Freedom of Information

The Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 was designed to promote a culture of openness and accountability amongst public sector bodies by providing people with rights of access to the information held by them. It is intended that by granting rights to information under publication schemes, people will better understand how public authorities carry out their duties, why they make the decisions they do and how they spend public money.

Any information can be requested under the Act. It is important to note that exemptions to the information we have to provide can apply, and we will use these exemptions where appropriate. An example of this might be where information is covered by the Data Protection Act 1998 and where information is of a commercially sensitive nature.

Under the Data Protection Act 1998 you have the right to ask Creative Scotland to inform you whether it processes any personal information relating to you and to provide you with a copy.
