Businesses and event organisers can download and print this guidance document which explains their obligations and how to check COVID Vaccination Certificates that are presented by members of the public.
We have created this guidance for venues where the NHS Scotland COVID Check app will be used. It describes the responsibilities venues have in relation to using the app and managing the data belonging to members of the public that they will be viewing.
Venues are required to display a privacy notice in areas where the app will be used. This will help members of the public understand the purpose of the data processing that will be done by the app and provide assurance about how their personal data will be safeguarded by the venue staff. We have produced this privacy notice template. It should be completed with your own venue’s details, printed off and displayed so that members of the public attending events can understand the purpose of data processing that will be done by the app. Venues are at liberty to display this in a different format but the basic provisions should remain unchanged.
