PRIVACY & COOKIES
Any personal information that you give to me will be handled confidentially by me, the staff and volunteers in my office, in line with the requirements of the Data Protection Act 1998. If you would like information about the Data Protection Act 1998, this can be obtained from the Information Commissioner’s Office through their website www.ico.gov.uk or advice line 08456 306 060.
What information do we collect about you?
My office collects personal information that is supplied to me in my role as a Member of Parliament. It includes information supplied by my constituents and others in relation to matters which I have been asked to pursue in the interests of individuals and groups who live in my constituency such as:
- details of specific cases
- information provided by signatories on petitions
- responses to questionnaires and
- contact details for the purpose of communicating news and updates
How will we use the information about you?
If you ask me to pursue a matter on your behalf, I will use your information in order to pursue the matter you have raised with me. My staff and volunteers will normally see this information to find help and advice for you. Your personal and sensitive personal information may be passed to other agencies (such as the Department for Work and Pensions, the CMS, the East Riding of Yorkshire Council) if I believe this to be necessary to pursue the matter you have raised with me. Your information may also be passed on to the House of Commons Library to obtain further background and research about your case. I intend that only the minimum possible personal information will be shared with other agencies, as necessary to further your cause.
If you give me personal information about someone other than yourself, I may need to check the facts with that other person. If you ask me to take action on behalf of a friend or relative I may need you to contact that person and ask them to confirm to me that they are happy for me to act on their behalf. If you feel it would not be appropriate for them to contact me, you should discuss this with me when you give me their information.
Constituency news and events
I would like to send you information about constituency news and events, but I will not use your contact details to do this if you have sent me an email to unsubscribe. If you later change your mind, you have a right at any time to let me know if you no longer wish to be sent this information. If you wish to receive or stop receiving this information, please contact my office.
Access to your information and correction
If you wish to see any information that I hold about you, if you want me to update or correct any personal information that I hold about you, or if you have any queries regarding personal data that I hold about you, please contact my office.
