At DCCScotland we take your privacy seriously and want to be transparent about how we will use your data.
Our grounds for processing your personal data
We will process your personal information to provide you with services and information you request from us and to deal with your enquiry.
By completing forms, emailing us or using our live chat function and providing us with your information, we believe you are expressing an interest in our services. Therefore we’d like to contact you in the future with other information, and about other services we offer, that we believe will be relevant and of interest to you and your organisation in a legitimate capacity.
How we will use and store your data
As well as cookies we use an IP address tracking tool to identify organisations visiting our website. When you browse our website, we use a 3rd party tool that looks up your IP address against their database of company IP addresses – if the 3rd party identifies your company, it notifies us and tells us which pages you visit. The 3rd party database also contains the names of relevant organisational contacts. When we establish that there is an interest, based on the pages you visit and existing data we hold on your organisation, and our experience of similar organisations use of our services, we will use existing data we hold and/or publicly available data (for example public social media data) to attempt to contact the most appropriate person, in order to ensure your organisation has all the information it requires about our services and provide any further assistance required.
The sharing of your data
We will not share your personally identifiable data with other 3rd parties.
We will never sell or lease your data to any 3rd parties.
We will treat your personal data with the same respect as we would wish our own personal data to be treated.
We may purchase data from 3rd parties who have appropriate and compliant personal data collection, security, maintenance, sharing and control procedures in place. In this case we carefully select only companies who we believe are highly likely to be interested in our services, and only contacts who we believe are likely to take responsibility for, or influence decision making, in the purchase of these services. We will only communicate services that we believe will be relevant and of interest to people and organisations as a legitimate interest. If you believe your data has been provided to us without your consent or you don’t believe we should be contacting you on the grounds of legitimate interest, please email: [email protected]
Accessing and editing the data we hold
You can of course change your preferences and opt out of some, or all future communications at any time, in our preferences page, by emailing us at [email protected] or by clicking the unsubscribe link which appears in all of our email communications. Please bear in mind that doing so may limit our ability or prevent us from providing information about services relevant to your organisation.
You have the right to access your information. If you would like to request a copy of your information or would like to change the information we hold about you please email [email protected]
