The Council and democracy Personal information and your rights

Limiting what we use your personal information for

You have the right, in some circumstances, to ask us to limit what we use your personal information for.

When you ask for the use of your personal information to be limited, this means that it can't be used, other than:

  • to securely store the personal information itself
  • with your consent or to handle legal claims, or
  • where it's for important public interests of the UK.

You have the right to ask us to stop using your personal information for any council service, where:

  • you have questioned the accuracy of our personal information
  • you do not agree with the way your personal information is being processed, for example where it has been used for a secondary purpose
  • we no longer need the data but you require it for the establishment, exercise or defence of a legal claim
  • you have objected to us using your data because you have taken steps to withdraw your consent.

If one of the above situations applies, we will stop using your personal information as you request, inform you that we are doing so, and securely store the information. However, this may cause delays or prevent us delivering that service to you.

Where possible we'll seek to comply with your request, but we may need to hold or use your personal information because we are required to by law.
