How we use your data

From 25 May 2018, we will need to comply with new European Union (EU) rules on handling personal data (the General Data Protection Regulation or GDPR). The aim of the new rules is to give people more say in how their personal information is used, and improve security by standardising the way organisations across the EU store and use personal information. Please follow the link for more information about the GDPR (pdf, 41kb).

The London Borough of Southwark, as the administering authority for the Scheme, is a Data Controller under the General Data Protection Regulation. This means we store, hold and manage your personal data in line with statutory requirements so we can administer your benefits. To enable us to carry out our statutory duty, we are required to share your information with certain bodies, but will only do so in limited circumstances. For more information about how we hold your data, who we share it with and what rights you have to request information from the Scheme, please download our privacy notice (pdf, 47kb).
