Household Support Fund privacy notice

Data controllers

Runnymede Borough Council is the data controller for the purposes of the support fund when it processes your personal data including receiving this from the referring organisation or from its own internal council departments.

Personal data is needed to establish eligibility and make the appropriate payment(s) without such data residents will not be able to access the support fund.

We must have a legal basis to process your personal data. Where we use your personal data for the purposes the support fund, our legal reason is that:

the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller (UK GDPR Article 6(1)(e))

For special category data (for example information about health conditions)

the processing is necessary for reasons of substantial public interest, on the basis of Union or UK law which shall be proportionate to the aim pursued, respect the essence of the right to data protection and provide suitable and specific measures to safeguard the fundamental rights and interests of the data subject (UK GDPR Article 9(2)(i))

District Councils may exercise the official authority provided to them by Section 1 of the Localism Act 2011 in meeting statutory functions in relation to the delivery of public health services.

We will not process your personal data for any other purpose than that for which it was collected, without first providing you with information on that other purpose and seeking your consent if applicable; except were we are required to disclose your personal data in accordance with legislation for example in relation to the prevention and detection of crime, counter terrorism, safeguarding, legal proceedings or to protect interests of you or another.

The data we hold in relation to the scheme for six years from completion of the case in accordance with the Limitation Act 1980.

You have the right to access the personal data we hold about you; to request we rectify or erase your personal data; to object to or restrict processing in certain circumstances; and a right of data portability in certain circumstances.

If you want to know more about your rights relating to the personal data we hold about you or you have a complaint regarding the way we have handled your personal information and you are a Runnymede resident please contact the Data Protection Officer at:
