General policy – automatic collection of information
Under the Data Protection Act and General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), we have a legal duty to protect any information we collect from you. MKDP respects your privacy.

What information do we collect?
We collect three kinds of information from visitors to our website:
– Individuals or companies contacting us requiring information on various topics
– Individuals or companies registering for our enewsletter to get updates from MKDP
– Site usage information from log files

Why do we collect this data and what do we use your data for?

The information that you provide us with or that is gathered automatically helps us to monitor our service and ensure that our web services are effective and useful. We collect data for correspondence, and marketing purposes.

How long and where do we store your data?

We keep the information on Milton Keynes Council’s servers. It’s kept for as long as it’s needed, and reviewed on a regular basis for accuracy. Information is kept based on either a legal requirement (where a law says we have to keep information for a specific period of time) or accepted business practice. This is set out in MKDP’s retention schedule.

Who do we share information with and why?

We do not pass on any personal information you have given us to any other site or transfer it outside the EU. We may pass it on to strictly controlled third parties so that they may provide you with marketing information about MKDP.

What rights you have?

You have various rights around the data we hold about you. These rights are;

  • Right of access (to receive a copy of your personal data)
  • Right to rectify (to request inaccurate data is corrected )
  • Right to erasure (to request that data is deleted)
  • Right to restrict processing (to request we don’t use your data in a certain way)
  • Right to data portability (in some cases, you can ask to receive a copy of your data in a commonly-used electronic format so that it can be given to someone else)
  • Right to object (generally to make a complaint about any aspect of our use of your data)
  • Right to have explained if there will be any automated decision-making, including profiling, based on your data and for the logic behind this to be explained to you.

If we are processing your information based on you giving us consent to do so, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. Doing so may mean we are unable to provide the service you are hoping to receive and the implications of you giving or withdrawing your consent will be explained at the time.
