Privacy Policy

Scotland’s Greatest Story is committed to providing you with a service that respects and protects your personal privacy choices and concerns. Our privacy policy and practices are detailed below.

  • We will not release personally identifiable information about you without your permission (except as needed to provide to you the services you have expressly requested). See “third party relationships” below.
  • We will only use information you have voluntarily provided to us.
  • You can tell us what your privacy questions and concerns are so that we can respond.


Helpful Definitions

Personally identifiable information is information, such as your name, birth date, e-mail address or mailing address, that can be used to uniquely identify you.

Anonymous information is not personally identifiable information. This includes information about how you use our sites (such as pages you visit and searches you do); the domain names and/or I.P. addresses (as explained below) of internet browsers that visit our sites; the time of day the site was visited; and other non-personal information. Anonymous information is not tied to any person who is not registered as a user, but helps us know what users do, pages visited, the average stay on our site etc.


Disclosure of Your Identity

We will never disclose details of your identity unless requested to do so by a governmental or law enforcement agency. If we receive a request from a third party that is not such an agency, we will contact the client whose identity has been requested using the contact information he or she has provided – if no permission is granted, no information will be disclosed.  


Third-Party Relationships

We have relationships with many partners, and some data you give us may be shared with these partners in the pursuit of the research you may require us to do. No third-party sites are covered by our Privacy Policy, and no warranty concerning these is either given or implied, but we will make every reasonable effort to ensure that third party sites comply with our Privacy Policy.
