Data protection – GDPR guidance.
The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) launches in May. It’s really important that everyone who handles data, whether at a Group, District or County/Area/Region (Scotland) level, understands the implications of the new legislation. This document offers a good introduction to GDPR in relation to local Scouting. It’s one of a number of documents we’ll be sharing in the coming months, to make the transition as easy as possible. The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) website has a wide range of tools and resources, along with a helpline (0303 123 1113) and online chat tool for any queries you may have.
