Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy describes how information you provide is protected and made use of by Bourse Scot Ltd (Bourse Scot), a company registered in Scotland with company registration number SC600288, whose registered address is at 12 South Charlotte Street, Edinburgh EH2 4AX.
Please read this Privacy Policy carefully and re-visit this page from time to time to review any changes that may have been made. This Privacy Policy explains how Bourse Scot collects information from you. It only applies to the information that Bourse Scot may collect on this website (the “Website”) and does not apply to information Bourse Scot collects by any other method. By visiting the Website you are accepting and consenting to the practices outlined in this Privacy Policy. Please remember that additional information on other methods of collection may be provided to you in a separate notice. Bourse Scot respects your right to privacy and will process personal information you provide only in accordance with applicable privacy laws and regulations.

What Personal Information do we collect?

Bourse Scot will not collect any personal information about individuals, except where it is specifically and knowingly provided by them. Personal information refers to information which does or is capable of identifying you as an individual. Your use of the Website involves the automated collection of certain types of information, some of which may be considered personal information under applicable laws or in specific circumstances. We will only collect information that is necessary for us to provide you with the product or service that you have requested such as your email address and subscription preferences when you sign up to our email alerts. Data will be subscribed to our email alert database, but can be removed or unsubscribed from the emails directly, by calling 0131 624 9820 or emailing contact@projectheather.crtr.dev with your request.
When you visit the Website, the web server collects some basic information such as your browser type, IP address, internet service provider’s domain name, which pages you accessed on the site, and when. This is for the purposes of improving the Website experience. The use of cookies allows us to find out how many people are using our Website and what pages they are visiting. Personal information is not automatically collected. If you do not want our Website to store cookies on your computer or device, you should set your web browser to refuse cookies. Details of cookies that are used on the Website can be found in the Cookie Policy.
Protection of your Personal Information

Bourse Scot will not disclose, sell or rent your personal information to any third party unless you have consented to this. If you do consent but change your mind, you may contact Bourse Scot to ask for any such activity to stop. All processing of personal information which we undertake is justified by a condition for processing. In the majority of cases processing will be justified on the basis that you have consented to the processing.
If a third party acquires all (or substantially all) of Bourse Scot’s business and/or assets, Bourse Scot may disclose your personal information to that third party in connection with the acquisition. Bourse Scot may also disclose your personal information where required to do so by applicable law, by a competent authority, governmental body or by a law enforcement agency.
Third party service providers who handle data on our behalf may be based in locations around the world, and we may also be subject to scrutiny from courts or regulators in a number of different jurisdictions. For these reasons, your personal information may be transferred to other countries both inside and outside of the EU and the EEA. Please be aware that countries which are outside the EEA may not offer the same level of data protection as the United Kingdom, although the collection, storage and use of your personal information will continue to be governed by this Privacy Policy.

Keeping your data secure

Whilst Bourse Scot takes appropriate technical and organisational measures to safeguard the personal information that you provide, sending information over the internet is generally not completely secure, and we cannot guarantee the security of your data while it is in transit.

If you go to another website from this one, read the privacy policy on that website to find out what it does with your information.
