Privacy Notice

Kelvedon Parish Council

PRIVACY NOTICE

Your personal data – what is it?

“Personal data” is any information about a living individual which allows them to be identified from that data (for example a name, photographs, videos, email address, or address). Identifi-cation can be directly using the data itself or by combining it with other information which helps to identify a living individual (e.g. a list of staff may contain personnel ID numbers rather than names but if you use a separate list of the ID numbers which give the corresponding names to identify the staff in the first list then the first list will also be treated as personal data). The pro-cessing of personal data is governed by legislation relating to personal data which applies in the United Kingdom including the General Data Protection Regulation (the “GDPR) and other legis-lation relating to personal data and rights such as the Human Rights Act.

Who are we?

This Privacy Notice is provided to you by Kelvedon Parish Council which is the data controller for your data.

The council will process some or all of the following personal data where necessary to perform its tasks:

  • • Names, titles, and aliases, photographs;
  • • Contact details such as telephone numbers, addresses, and email addresses;
  • Where they are relevant to the services provided by a council, or where you provide them to us, we may process information such as gender, age, marital status, nationality, education/work history, academic/professional qualifications, hobbies, family composi-tion, and dependants;
  • Where you pay for activities such as use of a council asset, financial identifiers such as bank account numbers, payment/transaction identifiers, policy numbers, and claim num-bers;

The council will comply with data protection law. This says that the personal data we hold about you must be:

  • • Used lawfully, fairly and in a transparent way.
  • Collected only for valid purposes that we have clearly explained to you and not used in any way that is incompatible with those purposes.
  • Relevant to the purposes we have told you about and limited only to those purposes.
  • • Accurate and kept up to date.
  • • Kept only as long as necessary for the purposes we have told you about.
  • Kept and destroyed securely including ensuring that appropriate technical and security measures are in place to protect your personal data to protect personal data from loss, misuse, unauthorised access and disclosure.

Kelvedon Parish Council

  • To enable us to meet all legal and statutory obligations and powers including any dele-gated functions;

  • • To promote the interests of the council;
  • • To maintain our own accounts and records;
  • • To seek your views, opinions or comments;

What is the legal basis for processing your personal data?

The council is a public authority and has certain powers and obligations. Most of your personal data is processed for compliance with a legal obligation which includes the discharge of the council’s statutory functions and powers. Sometimes when exercising these powers or duties it is necessary to process personal data of residents or people using the council’s services. We will always take into account your interests and rights. This Privacy Notice sets out your rights and the council’s obligations to you. Kelvedon Parish Council

We may process personal data if it is necessary for the performance of a contract with you, or to take steps to enter into a contract. An example of this would be processing your data in con-nection with the use of sports facilities, or the acceptance of an allotment garden tenancy

Sometimes the use of your personal data requires your consent. We will first obtain your con-sent to that use.

Sharing your personal data

This section provides information about the third parties with whom the council may share your personal data. These third parties have an obligation to put in place appropriate security measures and will be responsible to you directly for the manner in which they process and pro-tect your personal data. It is likely that we will need to share your data with some or all of the following (but only where necessary):

  • Our agents, suppliers and contractors. For example, we may ask a commercial provider to publish or distribute newsletters on our behalf, or to maintain our database software;
  • On occasion, other local authorities or not for profit bodies with which we are carrying out joint ventures e.g. in relation to facilities or events for the community. 1) The right to access personal data we hold on you

How long do we keep your personal data?

We will keep some records permanently if we are legally required to do so. We may keep some other records for an extended period of time. For example, it is currently best practice to keep financial records for a minimum period of 7 years to support HMRC audits or provide tax infor-mation. We may have legal obligations to retain some data in connection with our statutory ob-ligations as a public authority. The council is permitted to retain data in order to defend or pur-sue claims. In some cases the law imposes a time limit for such claims (for example 3 years for personal injury claims or 6 years for contract claims). We will retain some personal data for this purpose as long as we believe it is necessary to be able to defend or pursue a claim. In gen-eral, we will endeavour to keep data only for as long as we need it. This means that we will de-lete it when we are no longer required to, or it is no longer needed.

Your rights and your personal data

You have the following rights with respect to your personal data:

When exercising any of the rights listed below, in order to process your request, we may need to verify your identity for your security. In such cases we will need you to respond with proof of your identity before you can exercise these rights.

  1. At any point you can contact us to request the personal data we hold on you as well as why we have that personal data, who has access to the personal data and where we ob-tained the personal data from. Once we have received your request we will respond within one month.
