If you are unhappy with how we handle your personal information, you can contact us and / or notify the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) by calling their helpline on 0303 123 1113.
Personal information relates to a living individual who can be identified from that information, either by that single piece of information or by combining it with another piece of information that we hold or might hold in the future. Personal information could include things like your name, address, email address or internet protocol (IP) address.
The type of personal information we collect depends on the relationship that you have with us.
(i) If you or your organisation is a member of Social Enterprise Scotland:
(ii) if you are not a member of Social Enterprise Scotland but have used our website or receive emails from us. For example, you may be interested in social enterprise or working in an area that is linked to social enterprise such as local government or business i.e. you are a stakeholder):
It is important that the personal data we hold about you is accurate and current. Please keep us informed if your personal data changes during your relationship with us.
We share your personal information with the following third parties:
We require all third parties to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law. We do not allow our third-party service providers to use your personal data for their own purposes and only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.
The information we collect from you may be stored inside the UK, the European Economic Area (“EEA”) or outside the EEA.
If you live or work outside of the UK or the EEA, we may need to transfer your personal data outside of the UK or the EEA to correspond with you. Where this applies, we will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this privacy notice.
We also transfer data outside the UK or the EEA where our service providers host, process, or store data outside the UK or the EEA. Where we do this, we ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:
Please contact us if you want further information on the specific mechanism used by us when transferring your personal data out of the EEA.
You have certain rights under data protection legislation which can be exercised by contacting us at: Social Enterprise Scotland, Thorn House, 5 Rose Street, Edinburgh, EH2 2PR, by calling us on 0131 243 2650 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, including:
There are some exceptions to the above rights that are permitted under the data protection legislation. Please note that if you choose to exercise your rights to have personal data restricted or deleted, then we may not be able to provide you with a full service.
You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.
We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.
We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.
We will only use your personal data for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. If you wish to get an explanation as to how the processing for the new purpose is compatible with the original purpose, please contact us.
If we need to use your personal data for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.
Please note that we may process your personal data without your knowledge or consent, in compliance with the above rules, where this is required or permitted by law.
