What Personal Information About Web Users Does the Trust Gather?
The information we collect from website users helps us to improve the experience and functionality of pkht.org.uk. We use this information to process deliver services, process sales and respond to enquiries submitted via the ‘contact us’ page. We also use this information to improve our platform, prevent or detect fraud or abuses of our website and enable third parties to carry out technical, logistical or other functions on our behalf.
Automatic Information: we receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, like many websites, we use ‘cookies’ and analytics where we obtain certain types of information when your Web browser accesses pkht.org.uk. A number of companies offer utilities designed to help you visit websites anonymously.
E-mail Communications: we will respond to enquiries submitted via our ‘contact us’ form using the e-mail address you provide to us in the form. Depending on the nature of the enquiry we will retain your email address to enable us to contact you in future with further information or opportunities related to your initial enquiry. If you do not want to receive further e-mails or other mail from us, please indicate your communication preferences when we respond to your enquiry.
What About Cookies?
Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser to enable our systems to recognise your browser and to provide various features.
Does the Trust share the Information it receives?
Information about our supporters and clients is very important to us and we do not sell it to other organisations. Pkht.org.uk shares web user information only as described below:
Third Party Service Providers: We may employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf (e.g. Paypal, SurveyMonkey, Eventbrite, GoogleAnalytics). Examples include processing book sales and donations, analysing data, providing marketing assistance, providing search results and links (including paid listings and links), processing form submission data. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes. Further, they must process the personal information in accordance with this Privacy Notice and as permitted by the UK’s Data Protection Act.
Protection of the Trust and Others: We share personal information when we believe this is strictly necessary to comply with the law; enforce or apply our Conditions of Use and other agreements; or protect the rights, property or safety of Perth and Kinross Heritage Trust, our supporters, website users or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organisations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction. This does not include selling, renting, sharing or otherwise disclosing personally identifiable information from supporters, clients or other website users for commercial purposes in a way that is contrary to the commitments made in this Privacy Notice.
With your consent: other than as set out above, you will receive notice when information about you might go to third parties and you will have an opportunity to choose not to share the information.
If we ever have need to transfer personal information to countries outside of the European Economic Area in the course of sharing information as set out above, we will ensure that the information is transferred in accordance with this Privacy Notice and as permitted by the applicable laws on data protection.
How Secure Is Information About Me?
We work to protect the security of your information and employ the third party company PayPal to process all financial transactions.
We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards in connection with the collection, storage and disclosure of personally identifiable customer information. Our security procedures mean that we may occasionally request proof of identity before we disclose personal information to you.
What About Third-Party Advertisers and Links to Other Websites?
Our site may include links to other websites. These have been carefully selected and checked to provide additional relevant information to website users and to support or recognise the work of partner organisations and funders. We do not host marketing or promotional adverts from third-party advertisers, or Internet advertising companies working on their behalf on our website. Nor do we provide any personally identifiable customer information to such advertisers or third-party websites.
What Information Can I Access?
Under the General Data Protection Regulation you have the right to request a copy of any information that the Trust holds about you and your interactions with pkht.org.uk. This can be done by contacting a Trust member of staff. Further details of you rights can be found in our Data Protection Policy (see next drop-down section).
What Choices Do I Have?
As discussed above, you can always choose not to provide information, even though it might be needed to make a purchase, an enquiry or sign-up to an activity or event.
You may be able to add or update certain information on certain pages. When you update information, we usually keep a copy of the previous version for our records.
If you do not want to receive e-mail or other mail from us, please indicate your preference when communicating with us.

We stand behind the promises we make, however, and will never materially change our policies and practices to make them less protective of your information without your consent.
