Data Protection

The Data Protection Act governs the information that we hold about you, how we use it and how you can access it.

What is Data Protection?

We have a duty to look after the information we hold about individuals. This means that we must:

  • Only use your information for lawful purposes
  • Tell you what we are going to do with your information
  • Not use it for other reasons
  • Ensure that it is accurate and kept up to date
  • Not ask for more information than we need to do our job
  • Keep the information secure
  • Not keep it longer than necessary
  • Not send it to countries with less rigorous Data Protection laws than ourselves without your permission.

How do I find out what information the Council holds about me?

  • This is called a subject access request and must be submitted using the Subject Access Request Form available to download on the right of this page.
  • There is a fee of £10.00 which must be submitted along with the Subject Access Request Form.

How long until you hear from us?

  • We must respond within 40 days of receiving your request and the fee.
