Data Protection and Privacy Notice

Your right to data portability

This allows you to ask us to transfer your data back to you or another service provider in a safe and secure way without affecting its usability or you providing it again.

This right only applies;

  • to data you have provided to us and
  • where the legal reason for its use is your consent or a contract and when 
  • decisions are being made by automated means (solely by computers)

It is unlikely that your right will apply therefore to the majority of council services you receive from us. We would inform you if you have a right to data portability.
