Data Protection

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) takes effect in the UK from 25th May 2018. It replaces the existing law on data protection (the Data Protection Act 1998) and gives individuals more rights and protection regarding how their personal data is used.   The GDPR applies to Braunstone Town Council as a public authority. 

The GDPR's main concepts and principles are very similar to those contained in the current Data Protection Act 1998 and the Information Commissioner’s Office remains the regulator in charge of data protection and privacy issues. 

To legally process data under the GDPR the Council must have a ‘lawful basis’ to do so.  Individuals have the right to know what data the Council holds on them, why the data is being processed and whether it will be given to any third party.  They have the right to be given this information in a permanent form, known as a ‘subject access request’. 

Data Protection Policy

Braunstone Town Council's overarching policy and commitment to lawful and transparent processing of data, is set out in our Data Protection Policy, which was provisionnally adopted in April 2018, subject to consultation with Councillors, staff, customers, hirers and residents, and following no responses, was confirmed and adopted in June 2018:

Privacy Notice

The lawful basis foyr collecting and processing personal data, including how long we retain personal data, is set out in our General Privacy Notice:
