It is necessary for The Cabrach Trust to input and store information about its members and those who sign up for news and information newsletters, on a computerised record system.

The information you supply will be under the general control of the Trustees of The Cabrach Trust, and specifically the Chief Executive. You retain the right, at any time, to have information that we hold about you permanently removed from our records. All members of staff are bound by a confidentiality agreement. No information will be passed on to a third party without your consent. At any time you may apply to see a copy of the records we hold about you and there is no charge if you ask for this information.

Collection of information

The Cabrach Trust collects the details provided by you on registration together with the information we learn about you through your use of the service. We may collect additional information through your participation in any promotions and competitions offered by us. When you log on to The Cabrach Trust website we will automatically collect your IP address, a unique identifier for your computer or other access device. We will not use your IP address to identify you in any way.

How we use the information you provide

We use the information we collect to supply our services to you. We may also use your contact details to communicate with you by email, post or telephone.

Message boards are available for registered website users/members’ personal use and wherever possible, people using the forums are left alone to discuss whatever topics interest them at their leisure. However, where the Online Community Team feels that there are grounds for further input from The Cabrach Trust staff, they will pass a message to the relevant person to ask for them to respond. You may therefore occasionally receive a message from one of The Cabrach Trust’s staff.

Sensitive Information

We are required by law to advise you that occasionally the selections you make when using our services may indicate information about you that you may regard as sensitive. As with all of the personal information you provide to us, you can be assured that any sensitive information you choose to supply to us will only be used in accordance with our privacy policy and data protection policy.

Disclosure of your information

Your information will not be passed on to anyone outside of The Cabrach Trust without your express permission. However The Cabrach Trust shall be entitled to disclose your user identity and details if required or requested by the courts or other law enforcement authorities and/or agencies or in such other circumstances as The Cabrach Trust in its sole discretion considers reasonably necessary or appropriate.
