We are committed to protecting your privacy. We will only use the information that we collect about you lawfully (in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998).
The Council for British Archaeology (CBA) promotes the engagement of children and young people with archaeology, and achieves this primarily through the work of its Young Archaeologists’ Club (YAC).
The CBA believes that it is always unacceptable for a child to experience abuse of any kind and recognises its responsibility to safeguard the welfare of all children, by a commitment to practice which protects them.
Personal information about children is kept and used in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998. Only information which is necessary to their safe involvement with the CBA is requested; this is shared only on a need-to-know basis, used only for the purpose for which it was given, and stored securely.
The CBA recognises that information technology is an essential part of children’s lives and is greatly beneficial, but that it can present challenges for child protection, must be used responsibly, and has the potential to be harmful to children.
We will seek to promote safety online by never publishing children’s personal details without the express permission of their parents or guardians.
