Greetings from the 24th World Scout Jamboree Registration Team
This message is to update you on the registration process and our preparations for the General Data Privacy Regulations (GDPR).
Thanks to many of your responses and concerns about the registration process, we have identified several technology issues involving coding and reports. While this issue does not affect your International Service Teams’ ability to individually register or select a position, it has caused delays in the selection process for our planning teams and their ability to see reports. Over the last several weeks we have made great progress and have corrected most of the complex coding issues but not all the work is finished and we appreciate your patience while we continue to resolve these issues.
General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR)
As you know, we have been making preparations in response to NSOs requests to register their contingents by bulk uploads. For our European National Scout Organizations, this includes addressing the new GDPR guidelines which require additional intervention and processes for securing data. We are applying these privacy protections to all registrants. We expect most of these concerns to be resolved by late July. More details on this will be shared in the next few weeks as we also identify and prepare the secure data transfer site to be used for the uploads. In the meantime, online individual registration is still available and unaffected.
Please pass along this information to your contingents as necessary.
Thank you for your patience as we strive to prepare secure and efficient processes for you.
