Volunteering Information Sheets: Data protection and volunteers
If you hold information about volunteers, you will need to adhere to the Data Protection Act (DPA). As long as you know what data you can and can't hold, and have some processes in place to ensure personal information is only shared when necessary, management of this information shouldn't be a burden.
The aim of this Information Sheet is to provide an introduction to the Data Protection Act. It is not intended to be a substitute for professional legal advice, and organisations should seek further information about compliance with data protection, storage and disposal from the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO).
This Information Sheet covers:
- how the Data Protection Act affects volunteering
- data protection policy
- data processing
- the Information Commissioner's Office and the Employment Practices Code
- other obligations.
