This privacy notice outlines how the Office of The Right Honourable David Davis processes personal data in relation to constituency casework, other enquires received from members of the public and those who have signed up to receive newsletters and updates from David Davis.

Who is the Data Controller?

The data controller is the Right Honourable David Davis.

What does the Office do?

The Office carries out the duties and functions of an elected Member of Parliament. In the course of this work we undertake casework on behalf of constituents, as well as responding to general enquiries from members of the public.

In order to carry out this work we must process the personal data of constituents and members of the public contacting the Office.

How do we process data?

The Office processes personal data under the lawful basis of public task. In some cases, such as for newsletters, personal data is processed under the lawful basis of consent.

What type of data do we process?

Under Regulation 47 of The Representation of the People (England and Wales) Regulations 2001, Members of Parliament are entitled to a copy of the full electoral register for their constituency. This provides the Office with the following personal data for every elector registered in the constituency Mr Davis represents.
• Names
• Addresses

Where constituents have contacted the Office and have provided additional information we may hold data including, but not limited to:
• Email addresses
• Telephone numbers
• National Insurance numbers
• Passport numbers
• Criminal Offence Data
• Special Category Data, such as;
     • Race and ethnic origin
     • Political opinion and party membership
     • Religious beliefs
     • Trade union membership
     • Physical and mental health
     • Sex life and sexual orientation

Such personal data is securely stored by our Data Processor, Elected Technologies, who provide our casework management software.

We may also hold data you provide to us – for instance, if you opt-in to receiving newsletters, or you take part in a survey or petition. Personal data provided to the Office for the purpose of being kept up-to-date via newsletters, will be securely stored on Google Cloud Platform.

Will we share your data with anyone else?

If you contact David Davis’s Office regarding a personal or policy issue you would like David Davis to look into then we may pass your personal data on to a third party.

Depending on the nature of the issue this may include bodies such as; local authorities, government departments, public bodies, government agencies, health trusts, regulators, Ombudsmen and so on. Any third parties we share your personal data with will be obliged to securely store your details and only use them for purposes explicitly related to the issues raised.

We will never use your personal data in a way that goes beyond what can be reasonably expected when you contact the Office.

Personal data provided to David Davis for the purpose of subscribing to his newsletters will not be shared with anyone else.

For how long will personal data be kept?

Personal data will be held by David Davis’s Office for the duration of the period David Davis remains the Member of Parliament.

Casework and policy enquiries are often revisited in instances where individuals may have frequent correspondence related to long standing issues or in order to assist in responding to similar enquires in the future. This provides the best service and representation to constituents. As such, we believe the stated data retention period is entirely reasonable.
