Southwark Council Privacy Policy

Southwark Council is committed to standing against inequality, injustice and racism. To make sure we are providing fair services to all of Southwark’s diverse communities, when you register we ask you a few questions about yourself. You are under no obligation to provide the information requested, but it would help us greatly if you did. The information will help us understand our communities so that we can better support people from every background access the support they need.

By registering on this site and contributing to discussions, you consent to Southwark Council using your personal data for equality and diversity monitoring. Your responses will be kept confidential and any information published will be made anonymous. We will only allow authorised people to access your data and process it to inform the development of council services and for statistical and monitoring purposes.

Delib Privacy Information

Delib's software (this website) enables organisations to set up and operate democratic exercises, through which they will engage with you.

When you access and use this site, your information submitted to these exercises will go to the data controller: the organisation running this site. If you have provided it, this information may include personal data (e.g. your name, age, contact details etc.).

Delib's role is to process this data on behalf of the controller. Processing means (among other things): making sure this website runs properly, that your data is securely stored and is available to the controller so that they can do their work effectively.

Our primary purpose is in making software platforms that help you to have your say. To do this we need to make sure that when you do, your data is safe, secure, and can be worked with effectively. So that's what we do. Delib will not access your personal data unless requested to do so by the controller, and only for the purposes of helping them or you.

The data controller will have a privacy policy or other information notice, which sets out how they will hold and use the information you provide, as well as your rights in relation to that information. This policy or notice may be included on this page, or can be obtained by contacting them.

If you have any questions or requests about your personal data, these should be sent to the data controller in the first instance. Delib cannot directly deal with such enquiries as it does not control how your information is used.

Collection of Anonymous Browser Information

Delib stores information which is provided by your computer when you use the website. For example, your browser type, IP address, language preference, referring site, and the date and time. Delib's purpose in collecting this information is to maintain the security of the website and for the purposes of operating and improving the software.
