u.lab Scotland Privacy Notice

u.lab Scotland is a community of people with an open invitation to anyone practicing Theory U in Scotland. It is not an organisation. The community is supported by a “holding team” – a group of people with the common intention of supporting the grounding of u.lab and Theory U practice in Scotland. This team receives some support from the Scottish Government. A small number of volunteers from the holding team service the ulabscot blog.

The ulabscot blog team take the security of your personal data very seriously. This statement sets out what information we hold, why and how we will use it.

What information we hold about you

When we set up the ulabscot blog in 2015, we specifically chose a wordpress.com blogsite to allow you control over your own data: choosing what data to submit when subscribing to the blog and giving you a clear option to unsubscribe at any time (by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of our blog emails). This is particularly important as the ulabscot blog team is not a static team – it reflects who are active in the u.lab Scotland community at any particular time.

The ulabscot blog team does not hold data about you. This is collected, stored and processed by Automattic who own and host WordPress.com online. Automattic has updated its privacy policy in light of the implementation of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) on 25 May 2018. This privacy policy (which you can read here) sets how they process your data as a Data Controller.

How will your data be used?

While the ulabscot blog team do not hold your data, we communicate with you through the WordPress.com platform. As a subscriber to the blog, we will only contact you through this platform and only about u.lab Scotland news, stories and events. We will never use the platform to sell you products or services.


If you have a question about the content of the u.lab Scotland blog site, please contact Keira.Oliver@gov.scot
