Data Protection, Privacy and Cookies

Coleorton Parish Council respects your privacy.

Your Rights - The Data Protection Act

Under the Data Protection Act we have a legal duty to protect any personal information we collect from you. We do not pass on your details to any third party or government department unless you give us permission to do so or the law requires/permits it. We are committed to respecting your privacy. We have structured our website so that, in general, you can visit it without identifying yourself or revealing any personal information. Once you choose to provide us with any information by which you can be identified, then you can be assured that it will only be used for the purpose for which it was originally collected or compatible purposes. Please be advised that any information, unless stated otherwise, will be sent to us via the open internet and is therefore not secure during transmission to us. This is because your information may pass from your contact pc to an internet service provider and then via other providers to us, much in the same way as most email correspondence.

The Information Commissioner

The Information Commissioner enforces and oversees the Data Protection Act and the Freedom of Information Act. We have to notify the Information Commissioner of the types of personal data we process and for what purpose we use it for and whom we share it with.

The Data Protection Act provides you with rights in relation to the personal data we may hold about you, namely:

  • be provided with a copy of your personal data that we process and information concerning the processing
  • prevent processing likely to cause damage or distress
  • prevent processing for the purposes of direct marketing
  • rights in relation to automated decision taking
  • take action for compensation from the Council if damage results from any breach of the Act by the Council
  • take action to rectify, block, erase or destroy inaccurate data.

With regard to your rights to be provided with a copy of your personal data, you are entitled to this within 40 days of making the request, providing the request is in writing. Requests must contain the information required to satisfy the Council as to the identity of the person making the request (we may require proof of your identity). Requests must contain the information required to enable us to locate the information which is being sought. We will assist you where possible.

Further information about the Data Protection Act can be obtained from: The Information Commissioner.

If you have specifically provided us with your email, postal address or telephone number and do not want us to contact you in the future, please write or send an email to the Parish Clerk whose details are on the website. We will then ensure that we do not process your contact information for purposes not connected with your initial enquiry.
