Data protection legislation

From 25 May 2018, data protection legislation (including the General Data Protection Regulation [GDPR] and the Data Protection Act 2018) gives you certain rights. GDPR is European law aiming to make data privacy more transparent and organisations more accountable for what we do with your data. 

We are committed to ensuring that we are transparent about the ways in which we use your personal information and that we have the right controls in place to ensure it is used responsibly and is kept safe from inappropriate access, theft or misuse.  

We provide a broad range of services as well undertaking regulatory and administrative activities. These include the provision of education, child protection and care services (supporting early years, vulnerable adults and the elderly), the collection of taxes, administration of local welfare benefits and grants as well as our regulatory, enforcement and licensing activities.

You can find out more in our policies and guidance documents which are downloadable from the bottom of this page.
