At Bradford Council we take your privacy very seriously and this policy outlines how we will hold and process your personal information under the Data Protection Act 1998, the UK Data Protection Bill and the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) effective from the 25th May 2018. This policy contains important information about what to expect when we collect personal information via all platforms, including when you visit our website; or when you subscribe to our marketing communications. It further explains the specific ways in which we use and disclose that information.
This policy applies to information we collect in regard to:
For the purpose of Data Protection legislation (which includes, but is not limited to, the UK Data Protection Bill and also the General Data Protection Regulation), the data controller Bradford Council who in relation to any personal data that is held will observe all obligations under the Data Protection legislation and the Data Protection Principles. These obligations will be continuously reviewed in line with the ongoing regulations to ensure compliance.
As mentioned, we may use external services such as Google Analytics, Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter to display certain content on our website. We cannot prevent such websites from collecting information about your usage of their services, for example: the number of plays of a video, how many visits to the website and accessing location data, etc.
Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of our websites, compiling reports on website activity for Website operators and providing other services relating to Website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third-parties where required to do so by law, or where such third-parties process the information on Google’s behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.
When you access the Service by, or through a mobile device, we may access, collect, monitor and/or remotely store “location data,” which may include GPS coordinates (e.g. latitude and/or longitude) or similar information regarding the location of your device. Location data may convey to us information about how you browse and use the Service. Some features of the Service, particularly location-based services, may not function properly if use or availability of location data is impaired or disabled.
Your information will be stored on a secure server that has an imaging back up service. We share your personal data within Bradford Council. In general, the personal data that we collect from you will be stored at a destination within the UK or European Economic Area (EEA). However, we may also transfer your data outside the EEA, if stored on external platforms.
Please note that some countries outside of the EEA have a lower standard of protection for personal data, including lower security requirements and fewer rights for individuals. Where your personal data is transferred, stored and/or otherwise processed outside the EEA, we will take all reasonable steps to ensure that your personal data is treated securely and in accordance with this policy.
We only hold your information for the duration of the time of the project, consultation period or when you have selected to unsubscribe to us. We will not rent or sell your information to third-parties outside Bradford Council without your consent.
We take care to ensure the security of your personal data in use, storage and transmission and that it is only accessed by verified persons who have the necessary authority. All of our personnel who have access to personal data are legally and contractually obliged to respect the confidentiality of this information and we deliver training to ensure this is maintained.
We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.
