As of May 2018  GDPR, laws on data protection changed to further protect your rights.  We currently hold your contact details in our secure contacts list as you have previously been in contact with Parent Network Scotland.  We may occasionally contact you with any upcoming events or newsletters. 

Your data is important to us, and we’re committed to protecting it.  We encourage you to read our updated Privacy Policy to understand what these changes mean for you.

If you no longer wish to receive updates from us please contact [email protected] or [email protected] to be deleted from our system.

Data Protection and Privacy

Parent Network Scotland may ask for personal information about you including your name, age, email address, postal address, telephone number, and demographic information such as ethnicity and gender. PNS will only ask for such information where it is needed to provide the services you have requested. Times when PNS would do this include when you register with one of our courses and subscribe to our newsletter.  In order to keep you up to date with information and events we may include you in our mailing list or email list. You can unsubscribe from these at any time.  Website usage information is collected using cookies. Employees and volunteers of PNS will be asked for appropriate information, relevant to their role. We may compile statistical data from time to time; this will never include references to any individual.

How PNS will use the information about you

PNS will use personal information to provide services, and to administer donations made through PNS website.

How long will we keep your personal data

Whenever we collect or process your personal data, we’ll only keep it for as long as is necessary for the purpose for which it was collected.

At the end of that retention period, your data will either be deleted completely or anonymised, for example by aggregation with other data so that it can be used in a non-identifiable way for statistical analysis.


With consent, personal information will be stored securely with Mail Chimp.  Mail Chimp is an email marketing platform that enables us to send newsletters and information about our services.  Please see Mail Chimp Privacy Policy.
