Privacy Policy

Welcome to the Fathers Network Scotland website

This privacy policy sets out how Fathers Network Scotland uses and protects any information that you give us. We are committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. Should we ask you to provide certain information by which you can be identified when contacting us, it will only be used in accordance with this privacy statement.

Fathers Network Scotland may change this policy from time to time by updating this page. You should check this page from time to time to ensure that you are happy with any changes.

The information you provide will be held in accordance with the conditions stipulated under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), a European Union regulation, effective from 25th May 2018.

What information we collect and when we collect it

If you support us, for example by signing up to an event, we will usually collect your name, contact details, and whether you would like to be contacted, and how we would do so. We collect this data so we can keep you up to date with information and products you have requested, or may be interested in, and to ask for more support in the way that you have chosen.

Website usage information may also be collected when you are on our website, using cookies (which we talk more about later in this document).

We may collect the following information:

• Name, employer and job title
• Demographic information e.g. location
• Contact information including email address
• Other information eg preferences and interests relating to products and services, research or resources we are offering

The type and quantity of data we collect and use depends on why you have provided it. We will only collect, use and otherwise handle your personal data:

• Where you have consented to this for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes
• Where this is necessary to fulfil legal obligations that apply to us
• Where it is necessary for our legitimate interests relating to running our daily operations, as long as, in each case, these interests are in line with applicable law and your legal rights and freedoms.

What will we do with the information we collect

We may periodically send emails about new services, events, special offers, news or other information which we think you may find interesting using the email address which you have provided.


By submitting your personal data, you agree to us storing or processing your data, and to using it as part of Fathers Network Scotland’s internal record keeping. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this privacy policy.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.


We use a third-party provider, Nationbuilder, to deliver newsletters, invitations to our events and updates from Fathers Network Scotland. We collect statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies including clear gifs to help us monitor and improve our communication. For more information, please see Nationbuilder’s privacy notice.

Website analytics and cookies

We use web analytics to learn how our website is performing and to help us to continually improve the site’s functionality. Any analytics data that is collected, processed and stored while you are on our website is aggregated, anonymous, secure and kept confidential.

Also when you use our website, we may request to use cookies. A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be stored on your computer and, once you agree, allows web applications to respond to you as an individual. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser to decline cookies if you prefer, although this may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.

Our promise to you regarding your personal information

We will not sell, distribute or lease your personal information to third parties unless we have your permission or are required by law to do so.

You may request details of personal information which we hold about you under the Data Protection Act 1998. If you would like a copy of the information held on you please write to the address below. If you believe that any information we are holding on you is incorrect or incomplete, please write to or email us as soon as possible, at the address below; we will update it accordingly.
