We will normally only share personal information with adult volunteers holding an appointment in the Long Eaton District

We will however share your personal information with others outside of Long Eaton Scouts where we need meet a legal obligation. This may include The Scout Association and its insurance subsidiary (Unity Insurance Services), local authority services and law enforcement. We will only share your personal information to the extent needed for those purposes. We will only share your data with third parties outside of the organisation where there is a legitimate reason to do so.
We will never sell your personal information to any third party.
Sometimes we may nominate a member for national awards, (such as Scouting awards or Duke of Edinburgh's awards) such nominations would require us to provide contact details to that organisation.
