How we use your information
As part of the ‘ACHSCP Carer’s Strategy (2023-26)’ we are required to facilitate the creation of an ‘Unpaid Carer’s Reference Group’. The first stage involves engaging with people who are unpaid carers.
Where you have indicated you are interested we will ask you to provide your name, email address and contact telephone number by using the QR code or internet link provided and completing the information online.
Your contact details will then be used to contact and invite you to one or more engagement events. These events will be used to discuss the strategy and inform the purpose and expected outcomes for the ‘Group’.
These subsequent engagement events will be both in-person (in small groups, held in accessible community meeting spaces) and online, using the Microsoft Teams platform. There will also be an option to share your views by completing an anonymous questionnaire on our secure Citizen Space website.
At any stage, you can decide to withdraw your interest by using the following contact details:
- Email: ACHSCPengagement@aberdeencity.gov.uk
- Phone: 01224 067039
If you do so, we will remove your contact details from our records.
How long we keep your information
We will retain your contact details as long as the Group is in place, and you have not withdrawn your interest.
You have rights in relation to your data, including the right to ask for a copy of it. See more information about all the rights you have, how they work in practice as well as contact details for the Council’s Data Protection Officer. You also have the right to make a complaint to the Information Commissioner’s Office if you think we have not handled your data properly.
Our Legal Basis
Aberdeen City Council (the Council) is the Data Controller for this information. Wherever the Council processes your 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 this processing is that it is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of the official authority vested in the Council. This is because enabling participation in decisions and processes which are aimed at improving outcomes is part of our public task under the Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015 .
