Purpose and legal basis for processing

If you have indicated that you would be interested in contributing to further ICO work on the subject matter covered by this consultation or survey then we might process your contact details to get in touch with you.

We will process any other personal data provided in the responses for the purpose of informing the development of our policy, guidance or other regulatory work in the subject area of the request for views. In the case of consultations, we will publish a summary of the consultation responses and, in some cases, the responses themselves but these will not contain any personal data. The consultation documentation will make it clear what we plan to publish.

The lawful basis we are relying on to process your personal data is article 6(1)(e) of the GDPR, which allows us to process personal data when this is necessary for the performance of our public tasks in our capacity as a regulator

What we do with it

We process the information internally for the above stated purpose. We don't intend to share your personal data with any third party. Any specific requests from a third party for us to share your personal data with them will be dealt with in accordance the provisions of the data protection laws.

How long we keep it

We will retain consultation and survey response information until our work on the subject matter of the consultation is complete.

What are your rights?

You have the right to request access to the personal data that we hold about you.

You have the right to ask for your personal data to be rectified or erased, or to restrict the way in which we process it.

You have the right to object to the processing of your personal data.

If you are unhappy with the way in which we have processed your personal data then you have the right to complain to a supervisory authority.
