Don Foster MP*

Confidentiality Of Personal Information

The Data Protection Act 1998 requires that all Members of Parliament operate within the provisions of the Act and the following paragraphs give details of how I intend to meet those requirements.

I will treat as confidential any personal information that you pass on to me. I will normally allow my staff and volunteer workers to see this information so that they can find help and advice for you, and they will also treat this information as confidential. In some cases I may need to give some or all this information to agencies such as the Department for Work and Pensions, the CSA, House of Commons Library etc. in order to obtain further information about your case.

If you give me personal information about someone else I may need to check the facts with that person. Or if you give me information about, or ask me to take action on behalf of a friend or relative, I may need to ask that person to confirm that they are happy for me to act on their behalf.

Any personal information that you pass on to me will normally be recorded either on paper and/or on a computer for future reference. It will normally be kept only until the next general election or until there is a new Member for this constituency. If you wish to see any information that I hold about you, please write to me. You have the right to see information that may be held about you either on paper or on a computer.
