Claims for damage

Privacy Notice

Hampshire County Council collects information about you in order to process your request for compensation.

We will use the information for processing your claim against Hampshire County Council.

The legal basis for our use of this information is where it is necessary for compliance of a legal obligation to which the County Council is subject. Special category data will be held where necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or where courts are acting in their judicial capacity.

When investigating your claim, where our legal team determines that responsibility lies with our contractor, your personal information (contained in the claim form and supporting documents) will be shared with them so that they can investigate.

Your records will be held by us for a specified length of time, depending on the type of record and type of service we provide to you. Some of these time periods are specified by law. However, were there is no relevant legislation, the times given are agreed by the County Council’s Records Management Service.

The above information is the specific privacy notice for this service. For more information about your rights in relation to your personal data, see the County Council’s general privacy notice.

You have some legal rights in respect of the personal information we collect from you. See our Data Protection page for further details.

You can contact the County Council’s Data Protection Officer by email [email protected].

If you have a concern about the way we are collecting or using your personal data, you should raise your concern with us in the first instance or directly to the Information Commissioner’s Office.
