How do I know what the Council is doing with my information?
We will tell you why we need to collect your information and what we are going to use it for. We will also tell you about the purpose for processing your personal information, how long we will need to keep it for and who it will be shared with. This information will be in what we will call a privacy notice.
If you give the information to us directly, for example, over the phone or by filling in a form, we will tell you then what will happen with your information.
If we get information about you from someone else, we will tell you what will happen with your information the first time we get in touch with you after receiving the information, or within one month of receiving the information.
We will try our best to make this information easy to understand, using clear and plain English and will make sure you can find it when you need it. We will review the information in our privacy notices regularly and where necessary update it.
We have many of our privacy notices available on our website, on the pages where we ask for your information, but you can also see all of the privacy notices available on our website.
If you have any questions about why use and how we manage your information you can ask a member of our staff and they will talk you through it.
