5. How we use your information

We will use the information in a manner which conforms to the General Data Protection Regulations and the Data Protection Act 2018.  To the extent required, we will endeavour to keep your information accurate and up to date and not keep it for longer than is necessary in line with the council’s retention schedule and prescribed periods that may be set in statute.

For most purposes, we will only process your information where necessary to allow us to carry out a statutory function or comply with a legal obligation to do so. In these cases, we will make sure that the gathering, holding and use of your personal data is kept to a minimum and in accordance with the terms of this privacy statement or a more specific privacy notice.  We will not use your personal details for any other purpose without obtaining your consent, unless otherwise necessary as explained in this statement.

When we seek your consent for additional use of your personal information we will make clear what use you are consenting to.  We will not use your personal details for any other purpose without getting your further consent.

For some regulatory activity carried out by us, it will be necessary for information contained within your application to be published and potentially discussed in open committee. This will be made clear on any relevant application forms and supporting documentation. For matters decided by council committees, the reports and minutes of these committees are normally public documents and will be published on the committees pages on the Angus Council website.
