Due to our pandemic response requirements, customers are advised that there may be delays in handling requests for information made under the Freedom of Information (FOI) Act, Environmental Information Regulations (EIR) or the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) for subject access requests. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

We have had to change the way that some of our services operate to meet the guidelines set out by the government in response to the Coronavirus pandemic.

These privacy notices set out how we process your personal information within the Communications team for the following activities:

What information do we need?

For the purpose of filming public events we will capture images of individuals and possibly voice recordings.

Why we need it?

We like to film public events that we run or are involved with to promote our work, to engage residents with consultation activities and/or the democratic process and to enable our communities to feel part of events which they may not necessarily be able to attend in person. 

Our lawful basis for processing the personal data we capture at events (images/voice recordings) is that it is necessary in pursuing our legitimate interests.

Do we share your information?

We will publish or live stream videos of events.  These will be available via our website and on our social media pages.

We do not trade personal data for any commercial purpose, and we do not share your personal information with anyone else unless we have a lawful basis to do so, for example for the prevention and detection of crime, or if we have your consent.

How long do we keep your information?

Videos of ceremonial events and civic occasional will be kept indefinitely.

Videos of other public events will be kept for 3 years.
