Buckinghamshire Council privacy statement
During the period of getting ready for the new unitary Council, Buckinghamshire Council, we must prepare to ensure that you continue to receive the services that you will need from 1st April 2020. We want the transition to be as smooth as possible and to do this relevant personal information will be transferring to the Buckinghamshire Council Shadow Authority from the Buckinghamshire Councils.
As a statutory body, governed by law, we are permitted to implement the sharing of personal information between the Buckinghamshire Councils. The law that allows us to do this is The Buckinghamshire Council (Structural Changes) Order 2019.
We must look after and protect your information under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA). We meet the reasons or conditions under the GDPR/DPA for sharing personal information because it is necessary to implement the reorganisation of the councils in Buckinghamshire, in line with the Structural Changes Order and it is in the substantial public interest to make sure services continue to be delivered to you from 1 April 2020.
The information that we share about you will depend on the services that you are receiving or have received from the councils. It may be basic contact information (such as name and address, telephone details), characteristics information (such as gender, age), but it could also include service delivery specific information (such as housing history, application details, social care/health and behavioural details, benefits assessments, licences, permits and permissions, financial details). We will only share the information we need to provide your services.
For further information please contact the Shadow Data Protection Officer Catherine Whitehead (DataProtection@buckscc.gov.uk).
