Privacy Policy

At Scott's Porage Oats we are committed to protecting your privacy by acting in accordance with both this privacy policy and your rights under the Data Protection Act 1998. This privacy policy sets out: (i) a description of the personal information which we may collect, store and use about you; (ii) how we will collect such personal information from you; (iii) the purposes for which we will collect, use and store your personal information; and (iv) details of any recipients to whom your personal information may be disclosed. The only personal information we will have is that voluntarily supplied by you.

This website is managed by Scott's Porage Oats and its agents for the use of consumers within the UK, Channel Islands, Isle of Man and Republic of Ireland.

Personal information:

We do not use this website to collect any personal information about you unless you provide it voluntarily by registering to receive communications from us or by entering one of our competitions or prize draws. Personal information includes your name, phone number, email address or any other information that might reasonably be used to identify you individually.

If you do provide us with personal information and register to receive communications from us, we will not sell your personal information to any other third party. Your personal information will be collected and stored by Scott's Porage Oats or its service providers, with your consent, for the following purposes:

  • To directly provide the information or services you have requested.
  • To enable third parties to process and manage your information to enable us to provide the information or services you have requested.
  • For security, administrative or legal purposes.
  • To contact you about our products and services.
  • If you have entered one of our competitions or prize draws, in connection with such competition or prize draw.
  • To update and enhance the website and the services provided.


In such cases where Scott's Porage Oats asks you for personal information, we will take reasonable steps to ensure that it is kept secure and confidential (please note, however, that data transmission over the internet is inherently insecure and, therefore, we cannot guarantee the security of data sent over the internet). We will inform you of how we intend to use the information and we will ask for your explicit consent.

According to the contact details provided by yourself, we will provide the services you have requested by email or post.

Your consent:

  1. By entering your personal information on this website, you consent to the collection, storage and use of the information you voluntarily submit, for the purposes described above.
  2. Any personal information will only be used in accordance with current data protection legislation.
  3. All our email correspondence contains an unsubscribe option by which you can opt out of further email contact if you so wish.
  4. You have the right to ask Scott's Porage Oats for a copy of any personal information we hold about you. The Data Protection Act 1998 stipulates that you must request this in writing, and that this may be subject to a fee of up to £10. Please also let us know if the personal information which we hold about you needs to be corrected or updated. The address to write to is: The Data Protection Officer, Scott's Porage Oats, 450 South Oak Way, Green Park, Reading, Berkshire, RG2 6UW.



Scott's Porage Oats may use "cookies" in order to personalise delivery of content based on your experience with our website. When you enter we may assign your computer browser a unique random number called a "cookie".

Cookies enhance our website by allowing you faster access to the information you are seeking and by enabling us to provide suitable offers based on your experience with our site and products.

Your privacy and security are not compromised when you accept a cookie from our website. A cookie simply contains a large random number which in itself does not contain any personal information and any information you submit in the registration section of the website will not be contained within the cookie data. Cookies from our server cannot read data from your computer's hard disc or read cookie files from other websites or write any information to your hard disc. They simply make the website easier for you to use. The use of cookies is an industry standard, and many major websites use them to provide useful features for their customers.

Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser's preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites. You can configure your browser to accept all cookies, reject all cookies, or notify you when a cookie is set. (Each browser is different, so check the "Help" menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.) If you reject all cookies, you may not be able to receive personalised information on our website.

Who else might see my personal information?

Except as provided for in this privacy policy and to the extent required by law (we will share your information where required to do so by relevant legislation, or court orders), Scott's Porage Oats and our agents will not share your personal information with any third parties unless you give us explicit consent to do so.

Any links to other websites are for your convenience, and should not be taken as endorsement by Scott's Porage Oats. We are not responsible for the content or the communications policies of the linked websites, and therefore we recommend that you check the privacy policy of those websites to which this website may link. We will share your information where required to do so by relevant legislation, or court orders.

Should Scott's Porage Oats be acquired by another company, your personal information may be deemed a transferable business asset, and as such will transfer to the new owners.

Invisible GIF images & link tracking:

These are invisible images used in HTML email communications which allow us to track if the email was opened and read. We use these to monitor the level of interaction with a particular email and the results are used to tailor our communications with you.

We may use link tracking within the emails we send you: these links may contain information that allows us to track which links are being clicked on. Aggregated data from this is used to tailor the links provided in our emails. The data obtained from these links do not identify you.

Email communications and opting-out:

Scott's Porage Oats may contact you by email after you register on this website with information that we think you will find useful, including announcements about special offers and new products and services. It is our policy to send such emails only to customers who explicitly give us permission to do so. In every such email message, we will also have instructions on how to unsubscribe so that you will not receive any email messages from Scott's Porage Oats in the future if you do not wish to.

What if this Privacy Policy changes?

Scott's Porage Oats may update this privacy policy at any time. If we do this, it will be highlighted on the Home Page, so that you are aware of the need to check it again.
