Where do we keep your personal data?

The personal data that we collect will normally be kept on the council's own servers in the United Kingdom.

Sometimes, information may be held on 'third party' - meaning other organisations of company - servers which are outside of the European Economic Area EEA e.g. where the council is using a web-based service to send surveys or newsletters to its service users.

Information about you will only be held on third party servers outside of the EEA where either:

  • the European Commission has made a decision that they are happy that the country where the information is being sent has satisfactory protections on personal data (called an adequacy decision), or;
  • the council itself is able to provide suitable protections and make sure that you still have all your rights about your personal data.
