As Councillors, we may collect and process personal information during the course of our duties. In the eyes of the law, Elected Representatives are information Controllers in our own right. Council services may serve as processors for us. Which means that Councillors can give instruction to relevant Council services about how the information Councillors control should be used. For example, the Council’s ICT service, providing systems and applications for our use.
Here you will find more information about why Councillors collect personal information, the lawful basis that allows us to do so, for how long we will retain your personal information, scenarios where we may proceed to collect personal information without consent, and what your rights are if your personal information is collected.
