Data Controller

9th Muswell Hill Sea Scout Group is the data controller. The data is processed by 9th Muswell Hill  Scout Group and The Scout Association.


Why do we collect personal data?

We, as a scout group, are committed to preparing more young people with skills for life, by delivering an inspiring programme.  To achieve this, we have a legitimate interest in collecting personal data so that our leaders have all the information they need to deliver scouting activities in a safe and appropriate manner.  The personal data can be for members, parents, carers, leaders or helpers


What information do we collect?

In most cases, the information we hold is provided by the subject themselves, or by their parent or carer.  We hold details such as name, address, phone number, email address, IP address, date of birth, disabilities, health and dietary requirements.  This information will include children’s personal and health information.  We also hold the following financial data: subscription payments, event payments and Gift Aid statements.

Who do we share your information with?


We may share your data with other parts of The Scout Association and we may store it on Online Scout Manager, which is a tool we use to manage membership, subscriptions and the programme.  We will not share your data with any non-Scouting individuals or organisations unless legally required to do so or you ask us to.

How long do we hold your data?

Member details, along with their parent/carer details, are held until the member leaves the Scout Group.  Details of ex-members may be held in an anonymised form.  Adult member details will be deleted or anonymised locally, but will continue to be held by The Scout Association for legal purposes.

If you are bothered about the information we are keeping, we suggest you first talk to your parents about it. You can also talk to any leader, or contact us using our website
