What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Comments

Comments are disabled so no user data is retained.

Media

When a new member joins the Scout Group, their parents or guardian will be asked to sign an acknowledgement section, on the reverse of the membership form. This allows the use of photos and videos from activities within Scouting for Scouting purposes. These include (but are not inclusive of) the group, district or county websites, local newspapers, the newsletter, the noticeboard at the Scout Hut and the local press. Photos or Videos may appear on our social media sites; Facebook and/or Twitter.

Contact forms

We use Ninja forms for our contact forms. All data collected is sent via email to the relevant leader for action. Form data is stored securely on our web server for later review and retained for 1 months before being deleted.

Cookies

A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes a unique identifier that is sent to your computer or mobile phone (referred to here as a “device”) browser from a website’s computer and is stored on your device’s hard drive. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other websites.

Many websites do this whenever a user visits their website in order to track online traffic flows (statistics).

Most big websites or internet service providers do this too.

Cookies help the site remember your settings – language, font size and other preferences for how you want to view the site on your computer – so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to us.

Our cookies are not used to identify you personally. They’re just there to make the site work better for you and store your user preferences.

You may delete and block cookies from this site via your web browser, but parts of the website may not work and you may have to manually adjust some preferences every time you visit the site.

We do not use cookies for any other purpose than those presented here and do not use them to collect any personal data for any other purpose. We do not use advertising cookies.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.
