Review of Data Protection Policy - Consultation

Braunstone Town Council needs to collect and process data for the purposes of undertaking its duties and responsibilities, providing public services to customers, residents and hirers, to operate as a body corporate and as an employer.

The processing of personal data is governed by the Data Protection Act 2018 and General Data Protection Regulation.  The Council’s Data Protection Policy provides a framework for ensuring that Braunstone Town Council meets its obligations

The current Data Protection Policy was adopted on 30th April 2018 and therefore, is scheduled for review to ensure that it is fit for purpose for the nature and scale of the Town Council’s activities.

Proposed Revised Policy

The main areas of change in the updated policy are incorporation of:

  • Purpose and Scope;
  • pseudonymised personal data;
  • sensitive personal data;
  • the process for making and responding to a subject access request; and
  • Monitoring.

The proposed revisions to the Data Protection Policy are highlighted.

Residents, customers, users and partners are invited to comment on the proposed revised Data Protection Policy to ensure that it would be practical and fit for purpose.
