About this site

This page sets out some helpful information about the Tribunal web site, covering:

Privacy

The Tribunal is committed to protecting the privacy of all visitors to our web site and to respecting the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). For full details, please see our Privacy and Data Protection Policy.

Accessibility

The Lands Tribunal for Scotland is committed to making its web site accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018 (“the 2018 Regulations”). We have tried to make this site simple and accessible to all visitors — no matter what browsing software or assistive technology they may be using.

If you find something that needs improvement to make the site even more accessible, please let us know by email to LTS_Mailbox@scotcourtstribunals.gov.uk.

Standards compliance

We have applied best practices in design, coding and testing of this site, and we believe that all web pages on this site conform to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 at Level AA as required by EN 301 549: Accessibility requirements for ICT products and services.

Non-web documents 1

Some pages on this site include download links to Microsoft Word or Portable Document Format (PDF) files; notably application forms. These non-web documents may not be fully accessible because they are intended for printing.

1 A non-web document is defined at Clause 3 of EN 301 549 as a “document that is not a web page, not embedded in web pages nor used in the rendering or functioning of the page” — in other words, a downloadable document.

Responsive design

Our web site was built using up-to-date standards (HTML5 and CSS3) and responsive web design techniques — meaning that the web site alters the presentation and layout of pages to better suit the screen on which it is being viewed. A given page may not look exactly the same on a mobile phone as it does on a desktop computer, but the text and any important images are identical.

These changes should mean a better experience of the site for you, regardless of the hardware and software you are using.
