Data Protection Act

In accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the Data Protection Act 2018 came into force on the 25th May 2018. The principles are broadly similar to the pre-existing Data Protection Act 1998, the new legislation will alter how Derby City Council handles and maintains your information.

We ask that you keep us informed - by email, telephone or in writing - of any changes in your personal data so that we can keep our records up to date at all times.

For more information about the Data Protection Act 2018 you can refer to the ICO website.

For further information on how personal data is processed, please refer to our Privacy Notice page.

Please complete the data subject rights request form to assist in dealing with your request. 

Validating your request

For your protection and the security of the data, the Council will need to confirm that you are the person whom the data is about, and will require proof of your identity before we process the request. If you are acting on behalf of someone else, the Council will need proof of this as well as proof of your identity. We may also need to contact the data subject to confirm that they have authorised you to act on their behalf.

If you have not provided the relevant proof of identity and consent with the form, it will need to be provided before we can process your request for information.

Once your request has been validated, the Council will have a month to respond to your request. However if your request is complex or numerous, the Council may require a further two months, which will be communicated with you.

If you are not happy with how your request has been handled you can ask for an internal review in the first instance by contacting the Information Governance using the contact details at the bottom of this page and we will review the original decision.
