Moray Speyside Check & Protect is easy to use…

From Monday 21st March 2022, it is no longer mandatory for businesses to record customer contact details.

Visit Moray Speyside will maintain access to the Check and Protect platform until the end of 2022, whereupon we will review if it is still required.

Check & Protect from Visit Moray Speyside and Moray Chamber of Commerce is a free web-based platform which offers visitors and customers a safe, quick and easy way to check-in securely to any of around 100 participating venues using their mobile phone.

Details are recorded in GDPR secure way and held for 21 days before deletion, in line with the Scottish Government regulations – including recording the details of every individual in a party.

For visitors / guests who do not have a mobile phone, Check & Protect allows businesses to manually record guest details.

Why Use Moray Speyside Check & Protect?

Check & Protect allows guests to check in to all venues that use the system, without having to enter their contact details every time.

You just register your details once with Moray Speyside Check & Protect, then each time to arrive at a participating venue, you simply scan the business’ unique QR code.

Check & Protect will record the time of your arrival.

You can also then ‘check-out’ of the venue when you leave from within the Check & Protect platform.

If you have additional members in your party, it is mandatory for the venue to record those details too. Check & Protect allows the venue to add the details of all members of your party using the Business Dashboard (avoiding paper and pens.)

Moray Speyside Check & Protect is not an app, it is a web-based system so you do not have to download anything and it won’t take up space on your phone or drain your valuable data (or worse, your battery)
