Author: Information Governance Manager and DPO

Approved by Joint HR Committee

Date Approved: 16th October 2019

Date for Review: May 2020

The EU-wide General Data Protection Regulation and the Data Protection Act 2018 set requirements on how organisations, including councils, can process personal data. This is done through six principles. In order to uphold these principles, we have adopted and adhere to a Data Protection Policy which applies to all staff and Elected Members.
