Data Protection and Privacy Policy

Information about our website and how we handle your personal data.

The Data Protection Act 1998 gives individuals the right to know what information is held about them and provides a framework of 8 data protection principles to ensure that personal information is handled properly. The Act seeks to balance the rights of individuals to privacy of their personal information with the sometimes competing interests of those with legitimate reasons for using personal information.

All potential uses to which personal data held by Buckinghamshire Council may be put will be declared in our annual notification to the Information Commissioner (Buckinghamshire Council registration number Z5465986). Where explicit individual consent is legally required to process personal information it will be sought before undertaking any processing.

If you are a user with general public and anonymous access the Buckinghamshire Council website uses cookies to identify how people use our website in order to help us improve how information is accessed. These cookies are for Google Analytics and our web statistics. We do not collect personal information.
