How we gather your personal data

We obtain personal data:

  • Directly from you, for example when you apply for a NatureScot service, write to us or phone us, or come to one of our events.
  • From our partners, who help us deliver our services or when we help deliver another organisation’s services (for example the Scottish Government when we are helping deliver agri-environment subsidies).
  • From neighbouring land managers when we need to contact the person responsible for a protected site.
  • From cameras where we are using them for the security of our premises or for monitoring wildlife.

From audio or video recordings of meetings where appropriate.

From online sources when we don’t have your contact details or we need to verify information supplied in another way.
