Privacy StatementThe West Midlands Combined Authority are committed to protecting your privacy and keeping you informed of how your personal information is used. We would like to take this opportunity to assure you that we have taken all the steps necessary to ensure the security and privacy of your personal information.
We have included changes to address the new standards introduced by the European data protection law known as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). They include:
- Increased transparency around what information we collect, why we collect it, and how it will be used
- Explaining your rights, and
- Any further information which is necessary to enable the fair processing of your information.
Keeping your data safe and increasing transparency are important to us, and we’re committed to these changes. The new GDPR law came into effect on 25 May 2018 and everyone will benefit from the added privacy protections this law affords.
