Some of the language used in privacy notices can be specialised.  The Information Commissioner's website provides a useful introduction to key terms and concepts.


The purpose of the processing

The purpose of the processing is to enable delegates, speakers and a small number of other attendees to register for and attend the Legislators Summit being held at the Scottish Parliament on Friday 5 November 2021 and Saturday 6 November 2021. The Summit will be broadcast using video conferencing software to digital delegates using the Interprefy platform and to public attendees via SPTV and GLOBE International website.

  • the right of erasure and the right to object to processing of personal data do not apply where personal data is processed for the performance of a legal obligation.
