We need to use your personal data so we can get in touch, or provide a service you have requested. We can use your personal data under many different laws. The main ones for the Council are the Local Government Acts and the Localism Act 2011, but there are hundreds more. More information on Statutory duties of local authorities can be found on GOV.UK.
In many cases there is a law that says either that we must or we can process your data, and we can do so without your consent or permission.
For some services we process your data under a contract e.g. Picture Library scheme memberships.
Where we do not directly provide the service, we may need to pass your personal data onto the organisations that do. These providers are under contract and have to keep your details safe and secure, using them only to provide the service. You can find our list of contracts that shows the companies we deal with on YORtender – the procurement portal for Yorkshire and & Humber, and on the Leeds City Council publication scheme page.
