The Council will provide confirmation if you ask for it.

You have the right to obtain a copy of your personal data

You will be provided with copies of your personal data within the statutory period of one month (or if providing your personal data is a complex matter, this will be done as soon as is reasonable within 3 months). Your personal data will be provided to you free of charge, however, if your request is deemed manifestly unfounded or excessive, a reasonable fee will be charged. You ask to obtain your personal data by contacting the Council’s Data Protection Officer.

You have the right to have information about you corrected. This is known as the right of rectification

You have the right to ask that your personal data is rectified if it is incorrect or incomplete. This will be done within 1 month, or if your request is complex, within 3 months.

The right to have personal data erased

You have a right to have personal data erased in specific circumstances:

  • Where the personal data is no longer necessary in relation to the purpose for which it was originally collected/processed;
  • If you withdraw your consent;
  • When you object to the Council’s processing and there is no overriding legitimate interest for continuing the processing;
  • If the personal data was unlawfully processed;
  • When the personal data has to be erased in order to comply with a legal obligation; or
  • When the personal data is processed in relation to the offer of information society services to a child, for example an “app” developed specifically for children.

The right to data portability

The right to withdraw your consent at any time
