The legislation which we will use to protect your information is the UK General Data Protection Regulation (UK GDPR) and is supplemented by the updated UK Data Protection Act 2018. This legislation places obligations on us as Councillors (as a data controller) and strengthens the rights that individuals have over the processing of their personal information.
For further information about what personal information I process on your behalf and what I do with it please open the document “Councillor Activity Privacy Notice”.
Information about your individual rights can be found on the Council’s website: https://www.bury.gov.uk/index.aspx?articleid=14249
You can also obtain full information about your rights from the Information Commissioner’s Office https://ico.org.uk (the ICO). The ICO is the UK's independent regulator responsible for upholding and enforcing the rights of individuals under data protection law.
