Council Tax

7. How long do we keep hold of your information and is it secure?

We will only retain your personal information for as long as we are required to do so by law and the purpose we collected it for. The retention period is either dictated by law or by our discretion. Once your data is no longer needed it will be securely and confidentially destroyed.

Your personal information shall be stored for as long as we are required to maintain council tax records that are linked to the 1993 council tax bands. There has yet to be a revaluation of the current council tax bands, so it is possible for an adjustment to be required back to the start of the tax.

We have implemented appropriate technological and operational security in order to safeguard your data from loss or misuse.

Changes in your circumstances

You must notify us immediately if there are any changes in your personal details so we can maintain an accurate and up to date record of your information.
