The legal bases for processing your personal information are:
- Compliance with our legal obligations (Article 6 (1) (c) of the GDPR)
- Tasks carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority (Article 6 (1) (e) and Article 9 (2)(g) for Special Category Data, of the GDPR supported by Schedule 1, Part 2, Section 16 (1) of the DPA 2018)
- Contract for the supply of services (Article 6 (1) (b) of the GDPR)
- Consent (Article 6 (1) (a) of the GDPR)
The Local Authority has a number of statutory duties placed upon it by law; further details of this can be obtained from the Council’s Corporate Privacy Notice available at this link:
However, typically for our processing purposes we will be relying on legal duties specified (but not limited to) Housing Grants Construction & Regeneration Act 1996 and any associated regulations, statutory guidance and codes of practice.
Where our processing of your personal information is not covered by legislation or a public task we will ask you for consent to process and share.
Whilst the majority of information provided to us is mandatory due to compliance with a legal obligation, some of it is provided to us on a voluntary basis. To comply with the GDPR and the Data Protection Act 2018, we will inform you whether you are required by law to provide certain information to us; if you do have a choice to provide information that is not mandatory, your explicit consent will be requested. You do have the right to withdraw your consent if this is applicable to processing your data. If this is the case, we will let you know. A record is kept on how and when consent was obtained and details stored on the council’s secure database used by the Home Improvement Team.
