Who do we share your information with?

We use a range of organisations to either store personal information or help deliver our services to you. Where we have these arrangements there is always an agreement in in place to make sure that the organisation complies with data protection law. 

Your information will be used so that we can administer your account and collect Council Tax from you in accordance with the Local Government Finance Act 1992. Under Article 6(1) (e) of the General Data Protection Regulations, we are permitted to use data for our tasks; data Protection law describes this legal basis for handling your information. It will be used by North West Leicestershire District Council and our partners to deliver and improve services and fulfil our statutory duties. We will not disclose any personal information to any other third parties unless required or allowed to do so by law. If you make payment by debit or credit card, the information will be processed by banking services providers in accordance with the Payment Card Industry’s Data Security Standards.

Your information may also be shared with:-

  • Consultees e.g. Severn Trent Water Ltd, Leicestershire Fire and Rescue, Our checking engineers, any third party that we ask to help determine your Building Regulation application
  • A contractor appointed to carry out work in default of any notice, or as part of a dangerous structure notification
  • LABC Warranty – this relates specifically to the erection of new dwellings where no agent or developer is available (the Council is a member of LABC parent organisation)

We may also share your personal information when we feel there's a good reason that's more important than protecting your privacy. This doesn't happen often, but when we need to share your information, it will be because one of the exemptions in the Data Protection Act 2018 applies.  For example:

  • For the purpose of prevention and detection of crime,
  • Apprehension or prosecution of offenders
  • Assessment and collection of tax etc
  • Information required to be disclosed by law. For example: if the court orders that we provide the information
  • Functions designed to protect the public

There may also be rare occasions when the risk to others is so great that we need to share information straight away. 

If this is the case, we'll make sure that we record what information we share and our reasons for doing so.

We may also share personal data without consent to prevent the spread of infectious diseases, in the vital interests of any individuals or when it is in the public interest.
