Data Protection

 

Fife Council collects and uses personal information to help it provide services to its customers. Data Protection Legislation gives individuals rights in relation to their own information, and controls the way the Council can use the information it holds.

 

How the Council uses your information

 

Data Protection Legislation controls the way organisations that record personal information use it. It says that organisations must make sure that information is-

 

  • processed lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner
  • processed for specified purpose and not further processed inappropriately  
  • adequate, relevant and not excessive
  • accurate and up to date
  • not be kept for longer than necessary
  • processed securely

 

If you have any concerns about how your personal information is being processed by the Council, you should contact the Data Protection Officer in the first instance.

 

If you remain dissatisfied, you can contact the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO); this is an independent authority, which regulates data protection.
