Privacy statement

What information do we hold about other people?

Most of the personal information we hold relates to people we are providing services to. We also hold information about other people where this is necessary for us to carry out particular functions.

In some cases we will contact these other people directly to inform them:

  • that we have been provided with information about them
  • to also tell them about their rights under data protection law
  • to advise them about the terms of this privacy statement.

In many cases, contacting every individual would be impractical and disproportionate. Therefore the details of what we do with this sort of information and why we hold it is provided in the specific privacy statements relating to functions where we routinely hold information about people who are not our service users.
