What is personal data

Personal data is any information which identifies or relates directly or indirectly to a living person. Southwark Council considers all data on a case by case basis to decide whether or not the information is personal data. We know that personal data can take many forms and can include the following types of information:

  • names
  • dates of birth/ages
  • postal/email addresses
  • telephone numbers
  • ID reference numbers (such as a Council Tax number)
  • IP addresses

The above list is not exhaustive. Data protection legislation only covers living people and does not apply to the deceased. The council maintains that we have a duty of confidentiality which extends beyond death.
