How to help
Your safety - we will collect and store the following information: health issues including remedial measures to take, an emergency contact including phone number/email address for you.
To protect the Trust & improve performance - we will ask for details of relevant criminal convictions and store them in a specially protected part of our database. We will also keep training records such as skills training to ensure volunteer groups are kept safe and that we are fulfilling our health & safety obligations.
Communication - we will collect basic information to allow us to communicate with you such as name, address, telephone number and email address.
We will only process and store your personal data if you become a volunteer. If not, we will destroy/delete your application within 12 months.
We have a data retention period of 7 years after you finish volunteering with us after which all your personal data will be destroyed/deleted. We will however retain non-detailed, generic data such as the fact that you were once a Trust volunteer.
We are committed to the safekeeping of personal details of our members, supporters and anyone else whose information we hold. The Scottish Wildlife Trust’s Privacy Notice explains how and why we use your personal data, to ensure that you remain informed and in control of your information.
In accordance with new regulations, as of 25 May 2018 we need your permission to stay in touch by email. If you would like to hear from the Scottish Wildlife Trust by email about future volunteer related events, news and activities, please let us know using the options below. Please be aware that this will not affect your receipt of communications directly relevant to the administration of your role, nor from wider areas of the Scottish Wildlife Trust, if you are a member.
