Data protection

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (external website) allows you to find out what information about you is held by Buckinghamshire Council. This is called the the right of access and gives individuals the right to obtain a copy of their personal data.

How to make a request for information

We aim to supply the information within 28 days after receiving your completed request. Your request should include:

  • identification that clearly shows your name, date of birth, and current address
  • details of the information you wish to access: this will help avoid delays in locating the information you want

Once your information has been gathered, we will send it to you by email or post. In some circumstances you may be invited to come and look at it in the presence of a member of staff at the Council offices.
