The legal basis for collecting this information is in our legitimate interest of informing applicants about their application, keeping volunteers informed of training, activities and other information relevant to the volunteer session, to request feedback from volunteers, ensuring safety of all volunteers during volunteer sessions and selecting suitable volunteers.
