General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR)

All information is held confidentially in accordance with the new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) electronically by Online Scout Manager which is accessible by the leadership team of the Scout Group and Parents via the parent portal.

The 19th Durham Scout Group Executive Committee asks that this data is checked regularly and at least every term to ensure it stays accurate, as parents can amend the data at any time you do not need to wait for this check. All information is given voluntarily but is needed to help ensure the wellbeing of all the members whilst in our care. Some information is required by the UK Scout Association for the annual census which gives statistics on how many people are Scouting nationally.

The group will retain your personal information, throughout the time you/your child(ren) are a member of 19th Durham Scout Group. We do need to continue to hold data in a much more limited form for longer (just name, badge and attendance records) to fulfil our legal obligations for insurance and legal claims. We will also keep any Gift Aid Claim information for the statutory 7 years as required by HMRC.
