We have a responsibility to promote social well being. To do this we often need to work with other authorities. To ensure you receive the relevant services we may need to share your personal and sensitive information with other authorities and partners such as:
- Community Organisations
- Voluntary Services
- Health Service
In almost all such cases we will make you aware if your information is intended to be used in this way and provide the opportunity for you to say no. Except when we are required by law to pass on the information. See below.
When Consent is Not Needed
There are some situations where we are required by law to provide information and reports to a number of organisations. In these situations your consent is not necessary. These organisations include:
- Central government
- Bodies employed to process our data
- Other crime and disorder partners
Where possible, this information is made anonymous to protect your privacy. The exceptions to this include:
- Information provided to Crime agencies relating to prevention and detection of crime
- Information which is necessary to prevent serious risk to individuals
- Provision of data to organisations who process data on our behalf. Examples of this currently includes our payroll and occupational health service provider
- Staff payroll data, which is provided to external bodies responsible for auditing and administering publicfunds. This is for preventing and detecting fraud. You can obtain further details from the Audit Commission.
