Data protection 

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) applies in the UK from 25 May 2018. It places duties on organisations on how they collect, process, store and disclose information about people. It also gives individuals (data subjects) the right of access to information held about themselves.

The Freedom of Information Act 2000 gives a right of access to a wide range of information held by public authorities and places obligations on public bodies to release information on request, providing it is not subject to an exemption.

The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) regulates both these pieces of legislation and provides information for individuals on how the legislation affects them.

The council is required to appoint a Data Protection Officer, who is responsible for monitoring our compliance with data protection legislation and advising on our data protection obligations.

If you have any questions or worries about how the council collects or uses your personal information you can contact the Data Protection Officer.
