that information and keep it secure.
When we ask you for personal information, we promise:
• to make sure you know why we need it
• to only ask for what we need, and not to collect too much or irrelevant
• to protect it and make sure nobody has access to it who shouldn’t
• to let you know if we share it with other organisations to give you better public
services – and if you can say no
• to make sure we don’t keep it longer than necessary, and
• not to make your personal information available for commercial use without
your permission.
In return, we ask you to:
• give us accurate information, and
• tell us as soon as possible if there are any changes, such as a new address.
This helps us to keep your information reliable and up to date.
