Privacy notice

Last updated: 15 October 2021

The following privacy notice applies to the collection of data in signing up for your expression of interest and selection to be part of the Voice of Warwickshire Residents Group. It should be read in addition to the council’s overall Customer Privacy Notice.

Purpose for processing

To recruit interested local residents to be part of the Voice of Warwickshire Residents Group pilot, which will help to inform council-wide improvements and to create safer and stronger communities within Warwickshire.

Personal information collected and lawful basis

For the pilot we process personal and sensitive information as part of our statutory function to engage with our communities.

The pilot will use Citizen Space to collect the sign-up information which will include:

Full Name; Address; Postcode, Telephone numbers; Email address; IP address (your computer or device’s identifier)

We will also aim to collect the following sensitive information in order to ensure the group representatively reflects everyone who lives in Warwickshire:

Age, gender, ethnicity, long term health conditions, employment status, household type and if people are employees of Warwickshire County Council or elected representatives of any council.

We may also ask for optional information on religion, sexual orientation, caring responsibilities, previous military service and membership of interest groups. You do not have to give us this information.

We may use your information to analyse your feedback against your personal characteristics, such as age. All analysed data will be pseudonymous and will not be associated or cross referenced with your name or contact details in any way.

The only exception to this is when safeguarding concerns are identified. In the event of any potential safeguarding issues being identified, WCC will try to contact the individual concerned and, where deemed necessary, other parties in order to take appropriate action in accordance with our statutory safeguarding duties.

Who we may share your information with

Delib are the providers of the Citizen Space, which is the software we use to manage this process. Delib’s privacy policy explains how Delib will collect, safeguard and process your information on behalf of Warwickshire County Council.

Your information will only be used for the purposes of recruiting representative individuals to the pilot and for managing the group during this pilot.

Information will only ever be shared when it is strictly necessary to help us provide effective services or to prevent the risk of harm to an individual. We will not pass it onto any other parties unless required to do so by law or in all reasonable circumstances the disclosure is fair and warranted for the purposes of processing or subject to a legal data protection exemption. Sometimes the law requires that we may have to pass your details on to a third party, for example, to prevent crime.

How long we will hold your information

Warwickshire County Council will store the information in Citizen Space securely and erase it within two years of the pilot being completed.

Please note: all stated retention periods will be subject to any legal holds imposed under the Inquiries Act 2005 that may concern the information and override standard retention.
