To Sum Up

In accordance with the law, Stratford-upon-Avon Town Council will only collect a limited amount of information about you that is necessary for correspondence, service provision or the staging of events.  The Council does not sell or pass your data to third parties and does not use your data for purposes other than those specified.   When photographing or filming openly in public and semi-public places, we do not obtain express consent from individuals who are incidentally caught on camera as part of the general scene, unless they are engaged in an activity where they have a legitimate expectation of privacy. However, if an individual or organisation asks us to stop filming or recording (whether live or recorded) because of a concern about privacy, we would so do so. The Council strives to ensure that your data is stored securely and all information that is deemed to be no longer necessary is deleted.   The Council’s Governance & Policies Panel constantly reviews their Privacy Policy to keep it fit for purpose in protecting your data.


If you have a complaint regarding the way your personal data has been processed you may make a complaint to the Town Clerk, and the Information Commissioners Office Tel: 0303 123 1113.
