The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award (DofE) appreciates the importance of keeping personal information private and protected for everyone associated with the charity. This includes participants doing their DofE, the adults helping them, DofE employees and those who support the charity.
You can be assured that we do our best to ensure that your personal information is secure so that your confidentiality is maintained. All of our data is held in accordance with ISO27001 (and independently audited by BSI ref. IS 566019), an Information Security standard to which the DofE is certified and audited against. As you would expect we adhere to the provisions of the Data Protection Act 1998 and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that came into force on 25 May 2018, which gives you control over the information we store about you, and how we contact you in the future.
We will only use your information so we can communicate information to help you participate in a DofE programme, or support those who are participating; and to tell you about activities which may be of interest to you.
This statement explains how we achieve these goals and gives details of our privacy practices, including what information we collect about people through our website, eDofE (including mobile versions of the site) and across all our other services. It also outlines how the information will be used or disclosed, and rights with respect to our collection and use of personal data.
By using our services and providing us with your personal information you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Statement.
