Sharing your information

Subject to the points below, we will not share your information with anyone outside East Sussex County Council unless they are an approved contractor who is providing the service on behalf of the Council.

Any sharing of personal data is always done:

  • on case-by-case basis
  • using the minimum personal data necessary
  • with the appropriate security controls in place
  • in line with legislation

Information is only shared with those agencies and bodies who have a “need to know” or where you have consented to the sharing of your personal data to such persons.

We may use the information we hold about you to assist in the detection and prevention of crime or fraud. We may also share this information with other bodies that inspect and manage public funds.

Use of third party organisations

East Sussex County Council may share your information with trusted external organisations to process your data on our behalf.

We do this to manage the information effectively.

Any organisation commissioned by the Council will be under contractual obligation to comply with data protection legislation.
