The Parish Council is all prepared for the new General Data Protection Regulations (“GDPR”). It has adopted and updated its relevant policies & procedures and also appointed a Data Protection Officer. Although similar to previous legislation the GDPR does impose new burdens on the Parish Council, including new reporting requirements and the potential for increased fines and penalties.
Residents can be assured that any data held by the Parish Council will be processed lawfully and the data would only be used for the purpose which it was provided for. We do not share your data and we do not store it any longer than necessary. Any data we do hold will be secure and this will be maintained on an ongoing basis to keep our records both accurate and relevant.
