Privacy Notice - Library and Information Service

How long will your information be kept for?

We will retain your personal details while you are an active member of the Library Service.

Providing certain conditions are met, we will retain your data for 3 years after you stop accessing our services. After that, your personal details will be deleted unless you have any outstanding fines, in which case we retain your data for 7 years after you stop accessing our services.

Your personal data is stored in a database, the Library Management System.

At the end of the retention period, your data will either be deleted completely or anonymised so that it can be used in a non-identifiable way for statistical analysis and business planning.

Details on the retention of information stored in relation to an exclusion can be found in our Records Retention and Disposal Schedule.
