How we protect your information
Our aim is not to be intrusive, and we won't ask irrelevant or unnecessary questions. The information you provide will be subject to rigorous measures and procedures to make sure it can't be seen, accessed or disclosed to anyone who shouldn't see it.
We have an Information Governance Policy Framework that includes polices on Data Protection, Information Security, and Freedom of Information and Environmental Information. These define our commitments and responsibilities to your privacy and cover a range of information and technology security areas. We provide training to staff who handle personal information and treat it as a disciplinary matter if they misuse or do not look after your personal information properly.
We will investigate data incidents where we have found that your personal information may have, or has been, disclosed inappropriately and attempt to recover any data. We will report incidents to the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) that pose a risk to your rights and freedoms if these risks are high we will also inform you unless it would present a risk to you.
