Processing personal data

The definition of processing is very wide and covers nearly everything an organisation might do with data.

Processing can include

  • obtaining
  • recording
  • sharing
  • storing
  • reading
  • amending
  • destroying

Any organisation that processes personal information for the purposes of the Data Protection Act 1998 must comply with each of the 8 Data Protection principles.

If you have any queries about how your personal data has been processed, please contact the Information Governance team by emailing the council’s Information Governance team
