General Data Protection Regulations

Borough Green Parish Council only holds two types of personal data, and that is only held as  hard copy in the Clerk's files:

1. Staff Employment contracts, records and salary details.

2. Rental details of small parcels of recreation ground land.


A Parish Council is not obliged to retain a Data Protection Officer, and as we hold no personal

 data in need of protection


As we do not hold any other "personal data", there is no risk to us or the Parish Council using personal email addresses and devices, but we are setting up boroughgreen.gov.uk email addresses.

The Parish Council could not justify spending money on personal computers, and decided that Councillors needed to sign a GDPR DECLARATION confirming that they understand that any Council Data on personal devices is subject to Freedom of Information requests, and all such data must be deleted when they leave the Council.
