Your role

The Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) has published advice for elected and prospective councillors and has specific guidance for political campaigning too. In performing your duties as a representative of residents, you'll usually have implied consent to hold a person's details. However, these details shouldn't be used for campaigning unless you have the person's consent. If you need further advice, contact the ICO for more information.

Our role

As a data controller, we have a responsibility for protecting the personal details you add to eCasework, which we've addressed in our privacy policy. You can view our entry on the ICO's Data Protection Register here.
