How we use your information
We are asking for this information to assess, plan and co-ordinate emergency childcare we may be able to provide your child. If you’re offered and accept emergency childcare will also use this information to keep in touch with you about your child, and we will also keep further records about this childcare provision.
You may be offered an emergency childcare place in a hub which is run by us or with one of our trusted partners. For pre-school age children this may be with one of our registered funded providers and for school age children this might be in a childcare hub run by Community Link Childcare (CLiCC) Ltd.
Where your child attends an Aberdeen City School, we may access limited relevant information about them held on our school systems if you are offered emergency childcare. If your child attends a school outside Aberdeen City, we may ask you for further information if you are offered emergency childcare.
Where our settings are registered, we will share information with the Care Inspectorate.
How long we keep your information for
We normally keep childcare attendance information for the current year six years, but we will review the retention on this data when provision of emergency childcare services ceases.

Our legal basis
Aberdeen City Council is the Data Controller for this information about you. The Council understands our legal basis for processing personal data in as Article 6(1)(e) of the General Data Protection Regulation. This is because the provision of childcare is part of our public task under the Children (Scotland) Act 1995. As some of our services are registered with the Care Inspectorate and in accordance with the Regulation of Care (Scotland) Act 2001, we are required to keep and maintain records of anyone who uses our services. In carrying out this task, the Council is also likely to process special categories of personal data. The Council understands our legal basis for doing so as Article 9(2)(g) of the General Data Protection Regulation, because processing is necessary for reasons of substantial public interest.
