What does Reach do with the info I share?
When you get in touch with Reach, your question comes to the email inbox for the wider service which Reach is part of called Enquire – the Scottish Advice Service for Additional Support for Learning.
The Enquire team will make a record about you on the Enquire database (a system for storing info on computers). They will put in any info you share – like if you tell us you have been bullied, or you have autism. They will also put your name and any contact details (like your email) you share into your record. If you don’t want us to keep your name and contact details, just email us at email@example.com and we will delete them straight away.
We will delete your name and contact details from your record seven days after we have replied to your message. We will also delete your question and our reply from our email account seven days after we have answered your question.
We don’t give your information to anyone else unless you ask us to, or unless we think you or someone else might be in danger.
