    Terms and Conditions

    These terms and conditions set out what you agree to do if you do eventually become a Girlguiding volunteer. They also lay out how we’ll handle your data, as well as your own rights to your data.

    As a Girlguiding adult member and/or volunteer you agree that you will:

    - support our Mission
    - follow our Code of Conduct, our Policies and Procedures
    - be guided by and uphold our Values.

    These may be amended from time to time and you should read and review them regularly.

    In order for Girlguiding to be able to administer your membership, deliver our provision, benefits and guiding opportunities it is necessary for us to process your personal data. Girlguiding uses “Legitimate Interests” as the legal basis to process your personal information. We make sure to consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative), and your rights under data protection law. Our legitimate business interests do not automatically override your interests; Girlguiding will not use your personal data for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact it would have on you. You have the right to object to the processing of your personal data at any time.

    The information you have provided must be correct to the best of your knowledge. You must update your personal details if your circumstances change so that the information we hold remains correct.

    As a new volunteer or member you will need to complete our recruitment checks before you can join or volunteer. You must provide two satisfactory references and, depending on the role you have applied for, a criminal record disclosure check may also be required.

    We'd like to keep in touch with you about all the great work we do for girls and young women and how you can get involved. This includes activities, events and opportunities you can have as part of guiding, our fundraising and campaigns, our research, and products and services you can buy.

    We'll never sell your data and we promise to keep your details safe and secure - all in line with our privacy policy. You can change your mind at any time about how you'd like us to get in touch with you through our preference centre.
