Who is collecting it?
Fermanagh and Omagh District Council is the Data Controller which means that we determine how the information is collected, used, protected and shared where appropriate.

How is it collected?
The information is collected when you ask to join the Council’s Equality Consultation database. This might be via a telephone call, or a written request.

Why is it being collected?
We recognise the importance of engaging and consulting with our community in order to gather views and ensure that as many needs as possible are identified, considered and taken into account when we are developing our policies. If we find that our proposal is likely to affect some people in a negative way we can look for ways to reduce or remove the impact.

How will it be used?
Your opinions are important to the Council and we value all input to our consultation process. When you give us any feedback on consultations, your response will be made available as part of the Consultation Report. If you are responding on your own behalf, your personal details will not be included. If you are responding on behalf of an organisation, that organisation will be named.

Who will it be shared with?
Any personal information provided by you will not be disclosed to any other third party, unless law or regulation compels such a disclosure.

How long will it be retained for?
The Equality Consultation Database will be retained until it is superseded (as per the Council’s Records Retention and Disposal Schedule), however Council Officers will review the membership of the Database annually.
