When we ask you for personal information we promise to:
- tell you why we need it
- only ask for what we need
- make sure nobody has access to it who shouldn’t
- let you know if we’re going to share it with other organisations so that you can benefit from better public services (and if you can say no to this)
- only keep it for as long as we need to
- not make it available for commercial use without your permission, unless it’s information that we’re required to make publicly available on a public register
In return we ask you to:
- give us accurate information
- tell us as soon as possible if there are any changes, such as a new address
This helps us to keep your information reliable and up to date.
All the personal information we hold is protected under the Data Protection Act.
