As you all may or may not be aware, on 25th May 2018 new regulations were brought in place to enhance existing Data Protection laws and also build on people’s rights regarding control of their personal data.

Over the last couple of months, we’ve been reviewing our internal policies and creating new ones so that as a Scout Group, we align with GDPR. This has taken us a little longer than anticipated while we’ve get to grips with the new regulations and to have our new/updated policies ratified through the Group Executive Committee.

As such, we’re now ready to make you all aware of our updated policies. Please find attached a copy of our ‘Fair Processing Notice’ – this is a ‘summarised’ version of our ‘Data Privacy Notice’ which explains how we collect, process, store and use your personal information.

The full version of our Data Privacy Notice is available online on our website, and can by directly accessed by clicking:

If you have any questions, then please feel free to speak to your Section Leader.
