Borough Strategy – Doncaster Delivering Together - Privacy Notice

This Privacy Notice sets out what you need to know about how Doncaster Council will use your information to create videos to accompany the Council’s new borough strategy – Doncaster Delivering Together.

If you wish to view the latest 10 year borough strategy please see the team Doncaster website page: Doncaster Delivering Together

The Council is committed to meeting its data protection obligations and handling your information securely.  You should make sure you read and understand this notice before submitting your information to us.

What information about you do we collect?

For the processing to which this notice relates to be carried out we use the following information:

• personal information – such as: your name, email address, telephone number
• Images of you (photographs and video footage)

How do we collect information about you?

We will collect your information from you by email ahead of, and in person during the filming process.

How will your information be used?

Doncaster Council is working with an external communications and marketing company (Ledgard Jepson) to produce the videos; they act as a processor on behalf of the Council and a contract is in place with them for this processing. We will need to share your information with Ledgard Jepson in order to arrange the filming sessions. The footage captured will then be used to create videos that will sit alongside the new borough strategy. This strategy proposes new ways of working that respond to local needs and opportunities, seeks to reduce inequalities and improve the wellbeing of people and place. Doncaster Delivering Together builds on the borough’s recent successes and has taken on board the views of residents, businesses, voluntary and community organisations, schools, healthcare providers, visitors and developers. The videos will be shared on the Team Doncaster website, social media and other channels, as well as being shared by Team Doncaster partners to promote the strategy.

The Legal Basis for using your information

The legal basis which allows the council to use your information is:

1)(e) to do so is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest,

2)(g) processing is necessary for reasons of substantial public interest.

Who will your information be shared with?

We sometimes need to share your information within the Council or with other organisations. We will only share your information when necessary and when the law allows us to, and we will only share the minimum information we need to.

As the videos, which will include your name and video footage of you, will be shared on the Council and Team Doncaster’s websites, and on social media platforms, they will be viewable by anyone with access to the internet.

In certain cases we may also share your information with other individuals and organisations. For example, if you make a complaint to your Councillor, or if the sharing would help with a safeguarding issue, or help prevent a crime. Sometimes, we might share your information without your knowledge.

The Council will never sell your information to anyone else.

How long will we keep your information?

Your information will only be used for the purposes stated (creating and showing the videos) for 1 year. However, for administrative purposes, we will keep your information for 5 years after which we will securely delete the information.
