Data protection

We have to keep your personal information confidential and process it fairly. This means being clear about what information we hold, who we share it with and how you can see it.

Data Protection Policy

Accessing your data

Subject access requests – how to submit a request and what to expect from the council

Sharing your data

We share information between council services, external organisations like the Home Office and with the Audit Commission. This is to prevent crime – we never disclose data unless it is lawful to do so.

Use and protection of data

Different Council departments use different systems to manage and monitor their services and have produced Data Privacy Notices to set out how they use and protect your personal information:

Adult care




Housing, benefits and assistance


Life events

Neighbourhood transportation and street care services



FOI Fair Processing Notice

Some of our departments produce notices explaining how they use and protect your data.
