External service providers
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.
Who We Are and What This Policy Covers
This is the official website of the Craigberoch project based in Rothesay, Scotland.
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.
- 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.
How We Collect this Information
- 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.
How and Why We Use Information

Legal Bases for Collecting and Using Information
A note here for those in the European Union about our legal grounds for processing information about you under EU data protection laws, including but not limited to Data Protection Act 2018 and the General Data Protection Regulation (G.D.P.R) which is that our use of your information is based on the grounds that:
(1) The use is necessary in order to fulfill our commitments to you under the applicable terms of service or other agreements with you or is necessary to administer your account
(2) The use is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation; or
(3) The use is necessary in order to protect your vital interests or those of another person; or
(4) We have a legitimate interest in using your information
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).
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.
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.
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.
