The Council and democracy Personal information and your rights

Getting a copy of your personal information in a common format

You have the right to request that your personal information be given back to you or another service provider of your choice in a commonly used format.

This is called ‘data portability’. However, this only applies if you have provided us with your personal information and we're using your personal information with consent (not if we're required to by law) and if decisions were made by a computer and not a human being. It is likely that data portability will not apply to most of the services you receive from the Council.
