The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is legislation that sets out how we should manage and protect your personal information and it also provides you with various rights in relation to this information. This should be read alongside the Data Protection Act 2018.
Information is classed as personal if it could identify you as an individual either directly or by adding information together.
North Lincolnshire Council is committed to protecting your privacy when you use our services and our Council Privacy Notice explains how we do this and how we use your information.
In addition we have created Privacy Notices for the different teams who use personal data that will be added in due course and these provide more information about why we are collecting your personal information and how we use it. Links to these can be found in following Team Privacy Notices section.
We have also created a Data Protection and Confidentiality Policy [PDF, 408Kb] to explain how we will comply with the GDPR.
We have a Data Protection Officer who helps us to look after your personal information and who will answer your questions about how we look after this information. Our Data Protection Officer is Phillipa Thornley and she can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 01724 297000 and asking for your query to be directed to her.
