Data Protection

Personal Data Protection Policy

We have undertaken an audit of all our databases on our electronic systems containing personal information dating back to the Company being registered in 2017.  Our findings and actions are as follows

  1. Any database not used in the last year has been deleted.

  2. Personal information held about Board Directors and employees of Go Forth Stirling will only be used for the purposes of delivering the day to day business of the company

  3. We conducted a data refresh audit in April/May 2019. All previously held data about BID members was deleted. New email addresses, phone numbers and addresses were collected from BID members, stakeholders and partners. This information will be used only to communicate about BID related matters.

  4. We manage the Business Improvement District for Stirling as provided under the terms of Scottish Government legislation. We are data controller for the BID levy ratepayers’ database. This is kept confidential in a password protected file on our computer system accessible by the BID Manager and certain other BID staff on an operational need to know basis. 

  5. We have collected email addresses of staff in the shops and offices of the BID zone. We use these emails to send a newsletter and or invites to events (eg AGM) to the BID levy payers.  The newsletter contains information about the projects and services that they pay for.  These emails were consented to us for the purposes of providing information about the BID.  If a BID levy payers requests us to stop sending information to the address we have we will remove it from or email address book.
