Your data: Settle in the City

How we use your information

Aberdeen City Council is operating a booking process as part of our Settle in the City programme. We will collect your name, address, phone number, email, and details about the child attending the activity including any relevant information about health needs. The information you provide will be stored and used to confirm your booking.

We will share anonymous information about the number of children who attend with the Scottish Government, who have provided funding for the Council to run the activities.

How long we keep your information for

We will keep the booking information for 5 years from the date of the activity. We may dispose of some information which it is not necessary to keep once it has been used for reporting purposes.

Your rights

You have rights in relation to your data, including the right to ask for a copy of it. See more information about the rights you have, how they work in practice, and the contact details of our Data Protection Officer. You also have the right to make a complaint to the Information Commissioner’s Office. They are the body responsible for making sure organisations like the Council handle your data properly.  

Our legal basis

Aberdeen City Council is the Data Controller for this information. Wherever the Council processes personal data, we need to make sure we have a legal basis for doing so in data protection law. The Council understands our legal basis for processing personal data in bookings for the Settle in the City Programme as public task. This is because the activities are provided as part of the Council fulfilling its public task to administer the programme to benefit children who are new to the city.

In offering this service the Council will be handling special category data about the health needs of children. This is because this information may be necessary to provide health or social care treatment or services. It is also necessary in the interests of children participating in the activities that proportionate information about their health is passed to activity providers so that adaptations may be made depending on a child’s individual needs.
