Privacy Statement

Who does the Council share your personal data with?

To ensure that the Council provides you with an efficient and effective service, it will sometimes need to share your personal data with other partner organisations that support the delivery of the service you may receive. This may include:

  • Other Local Authorities
  • Police
  • Fire Service
  • HMRC
  • DWP
  • Housing Associations
  • Voluntary Organisations
  • Regulatory Bodies

The Council use data processors (third parties) who provide services to us in terms of IT provision and disaster recovery. There are contracts in place with these data processors and they cannot do anything with your personal information unless we have instructed them to do it.  They will hold your data securely and your personal information will only be shared in accordance with UK GDPR.  When it is necessary for your personal information to be transferred outside of the UK as part of these contracts, this will only be done in accordance with the UK GDPR.

The Council may also need to supply your personal data to other organisations it has contracted to provide a service to you. The Council will not make any disclosures to third parties for marketing purposes unless you give us your consent to do so.

The Council has a duty to protect the public funds it administers and may use the personal data provided by you, as well as data matching techniques, to detect and prevent fraud. The Council will also make any disclosures required by law and may also share this information with other bodies responsible for detecting/preventing fraud or auditing/administering public funds to ensure money is targeted and spent in the most appropriate and cost effective way. In order to achieve this, information may be shared with other internal departments within Pembrokeshire County Council and with Audit Wales (opens in a new tab).

The personal information we have collected from you will be shared with fraud prevention agencies who will use it to prevent fraud and money-laundering and to verify your identity. If fraud is detected, you could be refused certain services, finance, or employment. Further details of how your information will be used by us and these fraud prevention agencies, and your data protection rights, can be found by visiting: CIFAS (opens in a new tab)
