The personal data we process may include sensitive or other special categories of personal data such as racial or ethnic origin, mental and physical health, details of injuries and medication/treatment received. Criminal data may also be processed. Sensitive, special category and criminal data will only be processed if this is relevant to the investigation or application, for example determining whether an applicant is 'a fit and proper person' to hold a licence.

The information is collected, used and stored so that we can administer the services and statutory obligations that fall within the remit of the Licensing Team.
Our lawful basis for processing your personal data is the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in us, to comply with our legal obligation or for a legitimate interest.
Some of the information collected by us is regarded as special category data otherwise known as sensitive personal data and criminal offence data. In order to process this information, we rely upon the lawful basis above and Article 9(2)(g), in that processing is necessary for reasons of substantial public interest. The public interest covers a wide range of values and principles relating to the public good, or what is in the best interests of society.
We process personal data because it is necessary to comply with our legal obligations. The laws include:
To comply with statutory requirements, data may be disclosed to other services within Stratford on Avon District Council, and external agencies such as (but not exclusively) Police/DVLA/DVSA/DEFRA, Government agencies and other Local Authorities. An example of this is establishing an applicant's right to work in the UK via the Home Office, or ensuring that an applicant is not 'barred' from holding a particular type of licence via the Disclosure and Barring Service.
The information you provide in connection with an application will be publicly available on a Statutory Public Register that we have to keep and make available for any member of the public to view. This may include, for example but not limited to, your name, your business's details, licence/permit/registration/consent number, expiry date etc. Your personal mail address, signatures, contact numbers, will be redacted from public viewing but we will hold this information on our database and it will be available to all licensing staff.
This information may be more widely published on the internet in relation to public licensing and regulatory committee meetings within minutes and agendas relating to your licence/permit/registration/consent application, changes to your licence/permit/registration/consent, or licence/permit/registration/consent reviews.
We only keep information for as long as we need it for the purposes for which it was processed. Your information will be kept in accordance with our retention policy.
