Data Protection Policy

To operate efficiently, Scottish Assessors & EROs (“Assessors”) must collect and use information about people. These include members of the public and their representatives. In addition, they may be required by law to collect and use information to comply with the requirements of government. Scottish Assessors respect the privacy of individuals and the lawful and careful treatment of personal information is very important to their successful operations. It also helps maintain confidence between Assessors and those with whom they carry out business.  Assessors will ensure that personal information is treated lawfully and proportionately. To this end Assessors are committed to protecting the rights and privacy of individuals including those rights set out in the General Data Protection Regulation and the Data Protection Act 2018.
