Data Protection and Privacy Notice

Sharing your data for matching

We may use your data for data matching under our legal powers contained in Part 2A of the Government Act 1998. Data matching involves comparing computer records held by one organisation against other computer records held by the same or another organisation to see how far they match. This is usually personal data. We are required by the government to participate in data matching exercises to assist in the prevention and detection of fraud. Data matching may also be used to assist us in responding to emergencies or major incidents for example to identify individuals who may need additional support in an emergency evacuation.
