Data Protection

The Data Protection law gives you the right to know what information is held about you and sets out rules to make sure the information is handled properly. A copy of our Data Protection Policy can be found below and a copy of our Privacy Notice here.

How to request information

A request should be made in writing and you should include documentary evidence of who you are e.g. copy of your driving license, birth certificate or passport. A suggested template for making your request can be found below.

Will there be a fee

There is not normally a fee for processing or providing this information. However, if the request is a repeat request and/or if it is excessive or manifestly unfounded we can charge an administration fee, which includes search time as well as the time spent getting the data ready for release.

Timescales

We will respond within 30 calendar days of receiving your request.

Your right to review and appeal

If you have a complaint about the way we have handled your personal information, you should contact the UK Information Commissioner.

UPDATE FOR CROFTERS

Given last night’s announcement from the UK and Scottish Government the Crofting Commission’s office is now effectively closed.

Working without an office base presents us with many practical challenges and we will not be able to offer a normal service. We cannot deal with any new applications for the time being, though we will keep this under review. Meantime, our staff who continue to work from home, will process existing applications as far as possible.

You can continue to contact us by email info@crofting.gov.scot. Messages received in this inbox will find their way to the right person.

We cannot take phone calls on our normal office number or respond to any voicemails that are left on that number. Instead we have added mobile numbers to the Contact Us page of this website so crofters can continue to speak with us.

These are certainly unprecedented times and the proposals outlined above may change but we will keep you updated if they do.

Crofting Commission, Great Glen House, Leachkin Road, Inverness, IV3 8NW
