At no time will your information be passed to organisations for marketing or sales purposes or for any commercial use without your prior express consent.
We have put appropriate security measures in place to prevent your personal data from being used or accessed, altered or disclosed in an unauthorised way. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a legal or legitimate business need to know.
All of our staff have received training on data protection awareness and security. We have procedures in place to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and the Office of the Information Commissioner of any breach where we are legally required to do so.
We may need to publish your information on our website where we are required to provide statistical information or where you have responded to a public consultation; although your data will be anonymised to protect your identity.
We will endeavour not to keep your information for longer than is necessary. In some instances the law sets the length of time information has to be kept. Our retention schedules are available for you to view at the bottom of this page. These set out what information we hold, how long we plan to keep it for and what we plan to do with it at the end of its lifecycle.
In some instances we will not be able to remove your data automatically from our files because of the limitations of some of our legacy processes and systems. There are also some instances where we are still working towards meeting the requirements set out in our retention schedules.
If you are concerned about us continuing to hold your personal information you can contact us to ask that we remove the data immediately. We will always seek to comply with your request but we may require further information from you to be able to locate your data or we may still be required to continue to hold or process your information in order to comply with a legal requirement.
We do not record or monitor any telephone calls you make to us using recording equipment, although if you leave a message on our voicemail systems your message will be kept until we are able to return your call or make a note of your message. File notes of when and why you called may be taken for record keeping purposes. We will not pass on the content of your telephone calls, unless is it necessary for us to do so; either to fulfil your request for a service; to comply with a legal obligation, or where permitted under other legislation.
If you email us we may keep a record of your email address and a copy of the email for record keeping purposes. For security reasons we will not include any confidential information about you in any email we send to you. We would also suggest that you keep the amount of confidential information you send to us via email to a minimum or use our secure online services where possible or correspond with us by post. We will not share your email address or your email contents unless is it necessary for us to do so; either to fulfil your request for a service; to comply with a legal obligation, or where permitted under other legislation.
