How we use your information
Aberdeen City Council uses the information you provide to facilitate online access to streets and grounds maintenance services including reporting street cleaning and grounds maintenance issues, dangerous trees, and playpark and ground maintenance requests.
How long we keep your information for
We keep reports of problems with trees, fences, walls, railings and playpark equipment for five years from the date at which the case is closed.
We keep requests for bench repairs, graffiti removal, and needle or syringe removals for a period of three years from the date request cases are closed. Reports of damaged or missing lifebelts will also be retained for three years from the date the case is closed.
We keep reports of problems with floral displays, overgrown shrubs and hedges, requests for street cleaning, problems with drainage, street furniture, road signs, street lights, traffic lights or signals, weeds on road or pavement, and requests for the removal of litter, leaves, dirt or debris, or dead animals for one year from the date the case is closed.

You have rights to your data, including the right to ask for a copy of it. See more information about all of the rights you have. You also have the right to make a complaint to the Information Commissioner’s Office. That is the body responsible for making sure organisations like the Council handle your data lawfully.
