Data Protection Policy

Girlguiding Surrey West (the County) is responsible for the training and support of Girlguiding Leaders in the county who run over 400 units. It uses Personal Information which is held in Girlguiding’s membership system (GO) and is used for the administration of members’ participation in guiding activities. Girlguiding is the data controller for member data and the GO system has systems and processes to comply with GDPR centrally.

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

The General Data Protection Regulation, known as GDPR, replaces the UK Data Protection Act 1998. It gives you more control over how your data is used and how you’re contacted. It also means that organisations like ourselves must review how we manage your personal data and in turn, how you manage girls or volunteers’ data.
