The right of erasure

Question:
The right of erasure
Answer:

You have a right to ask us to erase information about you. This right will only apply where:

  • The personal data is no longer necessary for the purpose which we originally collected it for
  • We are relying on consent as the lawful basis for holding the data and you withdraw that consent
  • We are processing the data for direct marketing purposes and you object to that processing

Most of the processing carried out by the council is governed by legislation, which usually includes how long we have to keep your information for. The right of erasure won’t apply where we have a lawful reason to process your data and it is kept in accordance with policies in our retention and disposal schedule.

Your right of rectification and erasure extends to anyone we have disclosed your personal information to. We will take reasonable steps, where it is practicable for us to do so, to inform organisations with whom we have shared your information that you have made a request for erasure.
