In order to provide services to you, we may need to appoint other organisations (as processors) to carry out some activities on our behalf. These may include, for example, payment processing organisations, delivery organisations, mailing houses and contractors or consultants providing services to us where we need to provide them with limited personal information, to allow them to provide these services on our behalf. We select these organisations carefully and put measures in place to make sure that they are not allowed to do anything with your personal information which The Wild Scot would not do themselves.
We will not sell your personal data to any third parties.
Our data protection officer aims to directly resolve all complaints about how we handle personal information (see Contact Us above).
