Data Protection Act 1998

The Data Protection Act 1998 exists to protect all personal information held by organisations such as the Council. It also gives individuals the right to know what information is being held about them, known as a Subject Access Request.

Personal Information Held

A full list of the types of information held by the Council, known as the 'Register of Notifications' is held by the Information Commissioner.

You can search this list by visiting the Data Protection Public Register. You will need to enter our registration number Z6752355 or you can enter Derbyshire Dales District Council.

We use information about individuals to carry out specific functions for which we are responsible and in turn provide you with services you require.

We are under a duty to protect the public funds that we administer and, to this end, may also use the information that you have provided for:

  • the prevention & detection of fraud
  • to support national fraud initiatives; this may include your information being used in data matching exercises
