This privacy statement explains how the Parliament collects and uses personal information for the purposes of organising the Business in the Parliament Conference (BIPC).

Lobbying
In 2016, the Scottish Parliament passed the Lobbying (Scotland) Act, designed to bring about greater openness and transparency about the face-to-face lobbying of MSPs, Ministers and certain Government officials. While attendance at the Business in the Parliament Conference does not in itself constitute lobbying, some of delegates’ interactions with MSPs or Ministers at the conference may. Full information on the lobbying register can be found at its website. A quick guide can be accessed here and any queries can be directed at the lobby register team at lobbying@parliament.scot or 0131 348 5403.
