Craugeberoch Privacy & Cookie Policy

 

Your privacy is critically important to us. Here at Craigberoch we follow a few fundamental principles:

  • We are considerate about the personal information we ask you to provide and the personal information that we collect about you through the operation of our services.
  • We store personal information for only as long as we have a reason to keep it.
  • We aim to make it as simple as possible for you to control what information on your website is shared publicly (or kept private), indexed by search engines, and permanently deleted.
  • We help protect you from overreaching government demands for your personal information.
  • We aim for full transparency on how we gather, use, and share your personal information.
  • We do not sell any data to data brokers or external parties.

Below is our Privacy Policy, which incorporates and clarifies these principles.

 

Who We Are and What This Policy Covers

This is the official website of the Craigberoch project based in Rothesay, Scotland. 

We are owners of the following domains, for which the following Privacy and Cookie Policy apply :

  • https://www.craigberoch.org
  • https://www.craigberoch.com
  • https://www.craigberoch.co.uk

Please note that this Privacy Policy does not apply to any of our products or services that have a separate privacy policy.

Below we explain how we collect, use, and share information about you, along with the choices that you have with respect to that information.

 

Information We Collect

We only collect information about you if we have a reason to do so–for example, to provide our Services, to communicate with you, or to make our Services better.

We collect information in three ways: if and when you provide information to us, automatically through operating our Services, and from outside sources. Let’s go over the information that we collect.

 

Information You Provide to Us

It’s probably no surprise that we collect information that you provide to us. The amount and type of information depends on the context and how we use the information. Here are some examples:

  • Names & Emails : You may be requested to submit a name and email address to register to an event, sign up to our email, or contact us via online forms. These activities are optional and non-compliance do not restrict or inhibit usage of the service.
  • IP Address : Your IP address is submitted to our hosting provider and this website upon navigation to this website. Craigberoch does not intentionally record or retain you IP address by default. That said external service providers including but not limited to, our hosting provider, WordPress developers, WordPress plugins, WordPress themes may be able to se and log your IP address.
  • Phone numbers : If you register for an event or other that requires direct coordination with participants, we may ask you to submit your phone number so as to best reach you during this process. This number will not be used for marketing purposes, unless you have submitted it requesting a call back or over-the-phone interaction.
  • Other personal information : When using the contact form to communicate with us, some other personal information may be submitted to us through this website. This submission is voluntary and optional on the part of the user, and we seek to ensure proper data management practices with this data the same as any other noted above.
  • Basic Account Information: We ask for basic information from you in order to set up your account. For example, if you are subscribing to a newsletter, booking an event, or reserving a ticket with this website. This data could be handled by the website or an external service provider in adherence to this Privacy Policy
  • Transaction and Billing Information: If you buy something from us – booking a venue, reserving tickets for events, consulting services, for example – you will provide additional personal and payment information that is required to process the transaction and your payment, such as your name, credit card information, and contact information.
  • Communications with Us : You may also provide us information when you respond to surveys, communicate with our team about an event, post a question, or sign up for a newsletter. When you communicate with us via form, email, phone, WordPress.com comment, or otherwise, we store a copy of our communications (including any call recordings as permitted by applicable law).

 

Information We Collect Automatically

We also collect some information automatically:

  • Log Information: Like most online service providers, we collect information that web browsers, mobile devices, and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, IP address, unique device identifiers, language preference, referring site, the date and time of access, operating system, and mobile network information. We collect log information when you use our website –for example, when you create or make changes to your website on WordPress.com.
  • Usage Information: We collect information about your usage of our website. For example, we collect information about the actions that site administrators and users perform on a site using our WordPress.com or associated plugin services–in other words, who did what, when and to what thing on a site. We use this information to get insights on how people use our website, so we can make it better.
  • Location Information: We may determine the approximate location of your device from your IP address. We collect and use this information to, for example, calculate how many people visit our website from certain geographic regions. We may also collect information about your precise location via our mobile apps (when, for example, you post a photograph with location information) if you allow us to do so through your mobile device operating system’s permissions.
  • Interactions with Other Users’ Sites: We collect some information about your interactions with other users’ sites while you are logged in to your account with us, including but not limited to likes, follows, shares or commented on a particular posts, so that we can, for example, recommend posts we think may interest you. 
  • Information from Cookies & Other Technologies: A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Pixel tags (also called web beacons) are small blocks of code placed on websites and emails. Craigberoch uses cookies and other technologies like pixel tags to help us identify and track visitors, usage, and access preferences for our website, as well as track and understand email campaign effectiveness and to deliver targeted ads. For more information about our use of cookies and other technologies for tracking, including how you can control the use of cookies, please read our Cookie Policy further below.

 

How We Collect this Information

  • Contact forms: Within the website we have forms embedded that collect data and personal information from users. We currently use a WordPress plugin developed by The Theme Foundry within this website. Please click here to refer to their privacy policy.
  • Newsletters : Craigberoch runs a newsletter and email marketing service through this website. Throughout the website and in popups you may be requested to supply data and personal information so as to signup or register to a newsletter service. This is optional and the user is requested to consent to being added to a mailing list as well as agreeing with the terms in this herein Privacy Policy.
  • Cookies : If you accept cookies from our site, you opt-in to us saving your browser and session information in the form of a cookie. These are in place for your convenience so that popups and other triggers are not constantly activated upon navigating the website. By default our cookies are set to expire after 1 month (30 days).

 

Information We Collect from Other Sources

We may also get information about you from other sources. For example, if you create or log into your WordPress.com account through another service (like Google) or if you connect your website or account to a social media service (like Twitter, Facebook, Instagram). We will receive information from that service (such as your username, basic profile information, and friends list) via the authorization procedures used by that service. The information we receive depends on which services you authorize and any options that are available.

We may also get information, such as a mailing address, from third party services about individuals who are not yet our users which we may use, for example, for marketing and advertising purposes.

 

Embedded content

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Sharing Information

How We Share Information

We do not sell our users’ private personal information.

We share information about you in the limited circumstances spelled out below and with appropriate safeguards on your privacy:

  • Subsidiaries, Employees, and Independent Contractors: We may disclose information about you to our subsidiaries, our employees, and individuals who are our independent contractors that need to know the information in order to help us provide our website or to process the information on our behalf. We require our subsidiaries, employees, and independent contractors to follow this Privacy Policy for personal information that we share with them.
  • Third Party Vendors: We may share information about you with third party vendors who need to know information about you in order to provide their services to us, or to provide their services to you or your site. This group includes vendors that help us provide our website to you (like payment providers that process your credit and debit card information, payment providers you use for your ecommerce operations, fraud prevention services that allow us to analyze fraudulent payment transactions, postal and email delivery services that help us stay in touch with you, customer chat and email support services that help us communicate with you, registrars, registries, and data escrow services that allow us to provide domain registration services), those that assist us with our marketing efforts (e.g. by providing tools for identifying a specific marketing target group or improving our marketing campaigns), those that help us understand and enhance our website (like analytics providers), and companies that make products available on our websites (such as Amazon), who may need information about you in order to, for example, provide technical or other support services to you. We require vendors to agree to privacy commitments in order to share information with them. Other vendors are listed in our more specific policies (e.g. our Cookie Policy below).
  • Legal and Regulatory Requirements: We may disclose information about you in response to a subpoena, court order, or other governmental request. For more information on how we respond to requests for information about WordPress.com users, please see our Legal Guidelines
  • To Protect Rights, Property, and Others: We may disclose information about you when we believe in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Craigberoch, third parties, or the public at large. For example, if we have a good faith belief that there is an imminent danger of death or serious physical injury, we may disclose information related to the emergency without delay.
  • Business Transfers: In connection with any merger, sale of company assets, or acquisition of all or a portion of our business by another company, or in the unlikely event that Craigberoch goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would likely be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. If any of these events were to happen, this Privacy Policy would continue to apply to your information and the party receiving your information may continue to use your information, but only consistent with this Privacy Policy.
  • With Your Consent: We may share and disclose information with your consent or at your direction. 
  • Aggregated or Anonymised Information: We may share information that has been aggregated or reasonably anonymised, so that the information could not reasonably be used to identify you. For instance, we may publish aggregate statistics about the use of our website and we may share a hashed version of your email address to facilitate customized ad campaigns on other platforms.

 

Information Shared Publicly

Information that you choose to make public is–you guessed it–disclosed publicly.

That means, of course, that information like your public profile, posts, other content that you make public on your website, and your “Likes” and comments on other websites, are all available to others–and we hope you get a lot of views!

Public information may also be indexed by search engines or used by third parties.

Please keep all of this in mind when deciding what you would like to share.

 

How Long We Keep Information

We generally discard information about you when we no longer need the information for the purposes for which we collect and use it — which are described in the section above on How and Why We Use Information — and we are not legally required to continue to keep it.

This website does not seek to retain your data for longer than 1 year (365 days), with the exception of your name and email address used in subscribing to our newsletter. Cookies and other automated data collection systems are set to auto-delete after 1 month (30 days). 

 

Security

While no online service is 100% secure, we work very hard to protect information about you against unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction, and take reasonable measures to do so, such as monitoring our website for potential vulnerabilities and attacks.

 

Choices

You have several choices available when it comes to information about you:

  • Opt-Out of Marketing Communications: You may opt out of receiving promotional communications from us. Just follow the instructions in those communications or let us know. If you opt out of promotional communications, we may still send you other communications, like those about your account and legal notices.
  • Set Your Browser to Reject Cookies: You can usually choose to set your browser to remove or reject browser cookies before using this website, with the drawback that certain features of the websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.
  • Unsubscribe from our newsletters :  While we’d be very sad to see you go, if you no longer want to hear from us you can unsubscribe at any time. Please keep in mind that we may continue to retain your information after closing your account, as described in How Long We Keep Information above — for example, when that information is reasonably needed to comply with (or demonstrate our compliance with) legal obligations such as law enforcement requests, or reasonably needed for our legitimate business interests.

 

Your Rights

If you are located in certain countries, including those that fall under the scope of the European General Data Protection Regulation (also known as GDPR), data protection laws give you rights with respect to your personal data, subject to any exemptions provided by the law, including the rights to:

  • Request access to your personal data;
  • Request correction or deletion of your personal data;
  • Object to our use and processing of your personal data;
  • Request that we limit our use and processing of your personal data; and
  • Request portability of your personal data.

You can usually access, correct, or delete your personal data using your account settings and tools that we offer, but if you aren’t able to do that, or you would like to contact us about one of the other rights, scroll down to How to Reach Us to, well, find out how to reach us.

EU individuals also have the right to make a complaint to a government supervisory authority.

Other Things You Should Know

Transferring Information

Because Automattic’s Services are offered worldwide, the information about you that we process when you use the Services in the EU may be used, stored, and/or accessed by individuals operating outside the European Economic Area (EEA) who work for us, other members of our group of companies, or third party data processors. This is required for the purposes listed in the How and Why We Use Information section above. When providing information about you to entities outside the EEA, we will take appropriate measures to ensure that the recipient protects your personal information adequately in accordance with this Privacy Policy as required by applicable law. These measures include:

  • In the case of US based entities, entering into European Commission approved standard contractual arrangements with them, or ensuring they have signed up to the EU-US Privacy Shield; or
  • In the case of entities based in other countries outside the EEA, entering into European Commission approved standard contractual arrangements with them.

You can ask us for more information about the steps we take to protect your personal information when transferring it from the EU.

Ads and Analytics Services Provided by Others

Ads appearing on any of our website may be delivered by advertising networks. Other parties may also provide analytics services via our website. These ad networks and analytics providers may set tracking technologies (like cookies) to collect information about your use of our website and across other websites and online services. These technologies allow these third parties to recognize your device to compile information about you or others who use your device. This information allows us and other companies to, among other things, analyze and track usage, determine the popularity of certain content, and deliver advertisements that may be more targeted to your interests.

Please note this Privacy Policy only covers the collection of information by Craigberoch and does not cover the collection of information by any third party advertisers or analytics providers.

 

Third Party Software and Services

Please keep in mind that when you interact with them you may provide information about yourself (or your site visitors) to those third parties. For example, some third party services may request or require access to your (yours, your visitors’, or customers’) data, for example, via a pixel or cookie. Please note that if you use the third party service or grant access, your data will handled in accordance with the third party’s privacy policy and practices. We don’t own or control these third parties, and they have their own rules about collection, use, and sharing of information, which you should review before using the software or services.

Visitors to Our Users’ Websites

We also process information about visitors to our users’ websites, on behalf of our users and in accordance with our user agreements. Please note that our processing of that information on behalf of our users for their websites isn’t covered by this Privacy Policy. We encourage our users to post a privacy policy that accurately describes their practices on data collection, use, and sharing of personal information.

 

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, Craigberoch may change its Privacy Policy from time to time. Craigberoch encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. If we make changes, we will notify you by revising the change log below, and, in some cases, we may provide additional notice. Your further use of the website after a change to our Privacy Policy will be subject to the updated policy.

 

Cookie Policy

 

What are cookies?

Cookies are small pieces of data, stored in text files, that are stored on your computer or other device when websites are loaded in a browser. They are widely used to “remember” you and your preferences, either for a single visit (through a “session cookie”) or for multiple repeat visits (using a “persistent cookie”). They ensure a consistent and efficient experience for visitors, and perform essential functions such as allowing users to register and remain logged in. Cookies may be set by the site that you are visiting (known as “first party cookies”), or by third parties, such as those who serve content or provide advertising or analytics services on the website (“third party cookies”).

Both websites and HTML emails may also contain other tracking technologies such as “web beacons” or “pixels.” These are typically small transparent images that provide us with statistics, for similar purposes as cookies. They are often used in conjunction with cookies, though they are not stored on your computer in the same way. As a result, if you disable cookies, web beacons may still load, but their functionality will be restricted.

How we use cookies

We use cookies for a number of different purposes. Some cookies are necessary for technical reasons; some enable a personalized experience for both visitors and registered users; and some allow the display of advertising from selected third party networks. Some of these cookies may be set when a page is loaded, or when a visitor takes a particular action (clicking the “like” or “follow” button on a post, for example).

Many of the cookies we use are only set if you are a registered WordPress.com user (so you don’t have to log in every time, for example), while others are set whenever you visit one of our websites, irrespective of whether you have an account.

For more information on the choices you have about the cookies we use, please see the Controlling Cookies section below.

Where we place cookies

We set cookies in a number of different locations across our services. These include:

  • On our websites (including automattic.com, wordpress.com, vip.wordpress.com, jetpack.com, gravatar.com, intensedebate.com, vaultpress.com, and akismet.com).
  • In the administrative dashboards of our websites, such as Calypso and wp-admin.
  • On sites we host for our users.
  • On sites that use our plugins (e.g. Jetpack).
  • In the emails we send.
