How long we keep your information

We review our retention periods of the information we hold about you on a regular basis. We are legally required to hold some types of information to fulfil our statutory obligations. We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as it is necessary for the relevant activity or service that we provide to you, or as required by law.

We will retain your information for the period in which your information is being used for service provision or for our wider functions including debt collection. We have legal authority to process your information; your right to be forgotten does not apply to our functions and services

Details of transfers to third country and safeguards

The council uses Google Cloud Platform in the provision of its services and wider functions. This means that your personal and sensitive data is stored and processed on servers outside of the European Economic Area (EEA). Google has certification under the EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S Privacy Shield Frameworks; this means that there is an adequate level of security for data processing and therefore your data is being processed lawfully.
