What Personal Information about Customers Does Dig It! Gather?
Information You Give Us: We receive and store any information you enter on our website or give us in any other way. You can choose not to provide certain information but then you might not be able to take advantage of several of our features. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests and communicating with you.

Automatic Information: We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, we use “cookies” to track your World Heritage Site Bucket List score. Although we will not be able to provide you with a personalised experience at digitscotland.com if we cannot recognise you, we want you to be aware that these tools exist.

Information from Other Sources: We might receive information about you from other sources and add it to our information.

What about Cookies?
Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser to enable our systems to recognise your browser and to provide various features.

The Help menu on the menu bar of most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie and how to disable cookies altogether. Additionally, you can disable or delete similar data used by browser add-ons, such as Flash cookies, by changing the add-on’s settings or visiting the website of its manufacturer. However, because cookies allow you to take advantage of some of digitscotland.com’s features, we recommend that you leave them turned on.

Does Dig It! Share the Information it Receives?
Information about our users is an important part of our project and we are not in the business of selling it to others. Digitscotland.com shares user information only as described below:

Third Party Service Providers: We may employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf, such as MailChimp, Google Analytics, Google AdWords and Jump Marketing. Examples include sending e-mail (primarily our e-newsletter), data, providing marketing assistance, providing search results and links (including paid listings and links), and providing customer service. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes. Further, they must process the personal information in accordance with this Privacy Notice and as permitted by the UK’s Data Protection Act.

Protection of Dig It! and Others: We release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law; or protect the rights, property or safety of digitscotland.com, our users or others. This does not include selling, renting, sharing or otherwise disclosing personally identifiable information from customers for commercial purposes in a way that is contrary to the commitments made in this Privacy Notice.

With Your Consent: Other than as set out above, you will receive notice when information about you might go to third parties and you will have an opportunity to choose not to share the information.

Whenever we transfer personal information to countries outside of the European Economic Area in the course of sharing information as set out above, we will ensure that the information is transferred in accordance with this Privacy Notice and as permitted by the applicable laws on data protection.

How Secure Is Information About Me?
We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards in connection with the collection, storage and disclosure of personally identifiable customer information. Our security procedures mean that we may occasionally request proof of identity before we disclose personal information to you.

It is important for you to protect against unauthorised access to your computer. Be sure to sign off when you finish using a shared computer

What about Third-Party Advertisers and Links to Other Websites?
Our site may include third-party advertising and links to other websites. We do not provide any personally identifiable customer information to these advertisers or third-party websites.

These third-party websites and advertisers, or Internet advertising companies working on their behalf, sometimes use technology to send (or “serve”) the advertisements that appear on our website directly to your browser. They automatically receive your IP address when this happens. They may also use cookies, JavaScript, web beacons (also known as action tags or single-pixel gifs), and other technologies to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalise advertising content. We do not have access to or control over cookies or other features that they may use, and the information practices of these advertisers and third-party websites are not covered by this Privacy Notice. Please contact them directly for more information about their privacy practices. In addition, the Network Advertising Initiative offers useful information about Internet advertising companies (also called “ad networks” or “network advertisers”), including information about how to opt-out of their information collection.

Digitscotland.com may also display targeted advertising based on personal information about users. Although digitscotland.com does not provide any personal information to advertisers, advertisers (including ad-serving companies) may assume that users who interact with or click on a targeted advertisement meet the targeting criteria used to display the ad.

What Information Can I Access?
Digitscotland.com gives you access to a broad range of information about your interactions with digitscotland.com for the limited purpose of viewing and, in certain cases, updating that information. This list will change as our website evolves.

What Choices Do I Have?
As discussed above, you can always choose not to provide information, even though it might be needed to take advantage of certain digitscotland.com features.

You may be able to add or update certain information on certain pages. When you update information, we usually keep a copy of the previous version for our records.

If you do not want to receive e-mails from us through MailChimp, you can unsubscribe to general mailings at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of our emails or by emailing info@digit2017.com.

The Help menu on the menu bar of most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie and how to disable cookies altogether. Additionally, you can disable or delete similar data used by browser add-ons, such as Flash cookies, by changing the add-on’s settings or visiting the website of its manufacturer. However, because cookies allow you to take advantage of some of digitscotland.com’s features, we recommend that you leave them turned on.

Our project changes constantly and our Privacy Notice will change also. You should check our website frequently to see recent changes. Unless stated otherwise, our current Privacy Notice applies to all information that we have about you. We stand behind the promises we make, however, and will never materially change our policies and practices to make them less protective of customer information collected in the past without the consent of affected customers.
