Data Protection Policy

October 2018

Introduction

Privacy and data protection as a key policy for Scouting The Scout Association’s commitment to protecting privacy and data protection has been adopted as a key policy for Scouting.

This key policy underpins both this Data Protection Policy and other associated policies used by The Scout Association, local Scouting and its membership. It is important to note that as Data Controllers, local Scout Groups, Districts, Counties/Areas/Regions and Countries are directly responsible for any personal data they process and must therefore ensure that they are aware of their responsibilities under the law.
