Privacy Policy

DBRC is hosted legally by Devon Wildlife Trust, and operates within the protocols outlined within their privacy policy. However, in addition to the uses outlined within that policy, as an environmental records centre DBRC needs to retain your personal details alongside any biological record you submit, as part of our verification process, where we check that the identification is correct. We may contact National or local experts, to ask for their opinion on records that are rare or difficult to identify. DBRC staff and our affiliated verifiers will have access to your personal contact information, and we may need to contact you specifically regarding your record. The record is then held as metadata alongside the record, securely within our databases, but is not shared further.
