What is this Privacy Notice?

This Privacy Notice sets out what we do with Personal Data and what you can expect from us as part of our obligations when processing this Personal Data.


What data are we gathering?

We may hold Personal Data (including Sensitive Personal Data) about members, parents/guardians and volunteers. We believe it is important to be open and transparent about how we will use your Personal Data. Information we may hold includes the following:



Why do we collect this information?

We use this information to communicate with you and to carry out our obligations as Scout Leaders. We also have a responsibility to keep information about you, whilst on our waiting lists, during your membership and afterwards (due to our safeguarding responsibilities and also to help us if you leave or rejoin). In addition, we may collect data for registration to events, including nights away. In some cases this data will be Sensitive Personal Data, which we ask for to allow us to provide appropriate care for members whilst under our supervision.

Who has access to this data and who do we share it with?

Only those members who need membership information to carry out their role have access to that information.


We may share membership data with other local scouting groups where this activity is required to deliver the scouting district obligations, such as stand in leaders. We may also share data within The Scout Association. We do not store credit card details, nor do we share data with third parties without permission.


Where will the data be stored?

This data is securely stored in a secure online membership system and as electronic documents in a secure storage solution. We take data security seriously.
