Who are we?

Scottish Badgers is an environmental charity that works to protect badgers, their setts and natural habitats within Scotland. We are registered with the Office of the Scottish Charity Registrar as a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation.

What are we collecting your information for?

We maintain a database of badger road traffic casualties, badger sightings and badger setts. We use this information for the purposes of species and environmental protection, to assist appropriate bodies in the detection and investigation of crime and for legitimate research.

We are collecting your name and contact details in line with our charitable task, so that we can contact you with any queries regarding the records you provide. 

Where are we storing your information?

Your name and contact email address will be stored securely on Scottish Badgers internal servers in perpetuity.

Will we share your information?

We will not provide your name or contact details to any person or organisation outside Scottish Badgers without first contacting you to obtain your express permission except as required by law.

Your rights and our contact details

You are entitled to access any of your personal data which we hold. If you wish for us to send you a copy, please contact with as much detail as possible on the information you would like us to provide, and we will respond within one month.

You have the right to object to the processing of your personal data. You also have the right to request that we restrict or stop processing, rectify or delete your personal data. Where the personal data we hold has not been supplied by yourself, you are entitled to ask how we obtained the data. Please contact

If you have any concerns about how your personal data are being used, we will endeavour to answer any questions you have. You have the right to lodge a complaint with the Information Commissioners Office. You also have the right to an effective judicial remedy against decisions of the Information Commissioners Office, or against Scottish Badgers.

If you prefer to submit your record anonymously you can do that but it does make it less useful as we are unable to verify its bona fides or contact you to resolve any queries.

Thank you for helping us in our vital work.
