Personal information charter


Our principles

When we ask you for personal information, we promise to:

  • inform you of the information we may collect about you and why we need it
  • keep this information accurate and up-to-date
  • only ask for what we need and use it for the purposes it was collected
  • protect it and make sure that nobody has access to it who shouldn’t
  • let you know if we share it with other organisations to give you better public services – and if you can say no
  • not keep it any longer than necessary
  • not make your personal information available for commercial use without your permission
  • help you to understand your rights in relation to your personal information, including how you can request a copy.
