The Register of Electors that councils provide to authorised persons under the Representation of the People Act is also used for electoral purposes.  You may also provide data to us if you interact with us on social media such as Facebook or Twitter, and in such case, you should consult the privacy terms and options for those services.

  1. DATA SECURITY 

Personal data is stored electronically and securely. We ensure that our service providers comply with the same high standard that we do, and are in the UK.

  1. SPECIAL CATEGORY DATA

Special category data will be processed under the lawful basis indicated in section 3.

  1. TRANSFERRING YOUR DATA OUTSIDE OF THE EUROPEAN ECONOMIC AREA

Where the transfer of your data outside of the EEA takes place we will make sure that it is protected in the same way as if the data was inside the EEA, and it only occurs with your consent.

We will use one of the following safeguards to ensure this:

  • Where the European Commission has issued an adequacy decision determining that a non-EEA country or organisation ensures an adequate level of data protection.

  • A contract is put in place with the recipient of the data obliging them to protect the data to the same standards as the EEA.

  • The transfer is to an organisation that complies with the EU-US Privacy Shield.

Legally it is not permitted to transfer certain types of data, such as Electoral Register Data, outside of the EEA, and we honour that obligation.

  1. DATA RETENTION POLICY

Personal data will be held for no longer than necessary. Some types of data may be held for longer than others. Typically the maximum retention is two election cycles. Review of the data held will occur in each election cycle to determine whether it should be maintained or put beyond use.
