What is the legal basis for our use of your personal information?
The OPCC is a public authority and has certain powers and responsibilities. We process your personal data in the exercise of our official authority and/or to perform a task in the public interest. Our public duty can be found in the Police Reform & Social Responsibility Act 2011 (Section 9.) This allows us to award crime and disorder reduction grants.
In respect of awarding contracts and commissioning services, our legal basis for processing your personal data will be on the basis that it is necessary for the performance of a contract or to take steps to enter into a contract.
How do we handle your personal information?
We handle your personal information according to Part 2 of the UK Data Protection Act 2018. The act applies the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) standards for the processing of data considered to be ‘general data’.
We store personal data securely on our computer systems or in our physical files. Our staff, partners, contractors and volunteers access it when required to do so for a lawful purpose.
The OPCC is committed to ensuring that the personal and sensitive information it holds about individuals is accurate, up to date, used only for the purpose intended and securely protected from inappropriate access.
We regularly review your personal information and assess whether it is lawful for us to continue to keep it.
When your information is no longer required for any purpose listed in this notice or there is no longer a lawful purpose for processing it, we destroy it.
We commit to ensuring that you can find out about your personal information, be given access to it and have the right to challenge its accuracy.
Who do we share your personal information with?
We do not share your information with any third parties. Please note, your organisation’s details will be published in a decision record form on the PCC’s website, if successful.
How do we keep your personal information safe?
The OPCC takes the security of your personal information very seriously.
We use a variety of security measures, including encryption and access controls. This is in order to help protect the security, integrity and availability of your information.
The OPCC works hard to maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect your information in line with the Act.
Areas, where we store personal information, are restricted to our own and partner agency staff. Those areas are only accessible to people holding the appropriate identification.
How long do you keep my personal information?
The OPCC keeps personal information for as long as necessary to carry out the purpose, for which we hold it.
We manage records with personal information in accordance with the OPCC’s Retention Schedule.
