Your data: Creative Learning volunteers

How we use your information

When you apply to volunteer, Creative Learning, Aberdeen City Council keeps a record of the information you provide in the application to manage your volunteering experience. If you provide contact details, we will only use these to contact you in relation to your volunteering.

Creative Learning does not share this information with any other organisation or Council business area.

How long we keep your information for

We will keep your information for 12 months from the end date of your volunteering for reporting purposes, after which your data will be deleted.

If your application is not successful we will delete the application within 3 months of the advertised closing date.
