Data Subject Rights

Your information

Why does the Council hold information about me?

We may hold information about you for a number of reasons but this is primarily so that we can provide you with the services you require. We may also use your information to plan and improve our services, and so that we can keep in touch with you. We have to protect your personal data and we don’t share it with other organisations without your consent, unless we are required to do so by law.

The Council has to comply with data protection laws which exist to make sure your personal data is legally and fairly processed. This guide has been produced to provide you with information about your rights under data protection legislation and to provide answers to some of the most frequently asked questions.
