Terms & Privacy


Scottish PA Network will authorise both PA Membership and Business Membership.  Scottish PA Network reserves the right to refuse or cancel memberships at any time with a 1 week notice period.  Membership is subject to the personal authorisation of Scottish PA Network.



At Scottish PA Network we are committed to maintaining the trust and confidence of visitors to our website, and our PA and Business Members. In particular, we want you to know that Scottish PA Network is not in the business of selling, renting or trading email lists with other companies and businesses for marketing purposes. We just don’t do that sort of thing. In this Privacy Policy, we’ve provided lots of detailed information on when and why we collect your information, how we use it, the limited conditions under which we may disclose it to others and how we keep it secure.


When someone visits https://www.scottishpanetwork.com we use a third party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone. We do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website.


As part of the registration process for our weekly e-newsletter, we collect personal information. We use that information for a couple of reasons: to tell you about stuff you’ve asked us to tell you about; to contact you if we need to obtain or provide additional information; to check our records are right and to check every now and then that you’re happy and satisfied. We don’t rent or trade email lists with other organisations and businesses. We use a third-party provider, Beeline, to deliver our newsletter. We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our e-newsletter. For more information, please see Beeline’s Privacy notice: https://help.createsend.com/how-we-keep-your-data-private-and-secure
You can unsubscribe to general mailings at any time of the day or night by clicking the unsubscribe link on any of our e-newsletters or simply email [email protected]


As part of the business membership, we collect business information for the purposes of setting up an online profile page in the business directory. We collect the business name, address, main/reservations phone number, sales contact name for enquiries, their email address and also the business website. We also collect a paragraph to describe the business for the purposes of telling the PA audience about that business. We request the logo and image/s of the business to complete the online profile page. This online profile page can only be viewed by business members and PA members after securely logging in to the Directory page. The Directory serves to promote a business offering to the PA members. A business member can log in an update the profile page at any time.


When you RSVP or register to attend any of our PA events, we will ask for your name, job title and business email address. This will be stored in Eventbrite and in our secure email system maintained by Nimbus Blue.

Please be assured that we do not share your personal details with any other company without your consent.


We may share personal information with an organisation (eg: venue) that is hosting our PA events. Many of the events for Scottish PA Network members are presented in partnership with other companies such as hotels and restaurants. We will let them know about your booking and share your name, company and work email address with them so that they can contact you post event to thank you for attending and to see if they can assist you with any future business you may have.


You are entitled to view, amend, or delete the personal information that we hold. Email your request to our data protection officer Rosemary McLennan at [email protected]
