Freedom of Information and Data Protection
Freedom of Information
The Commission is committed to the provisions and principles of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and has produced its own Freedom of Information Policy and Publication Scheme.
If you have any queries or wish to submit a request for information under the Act, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, or write to:
Information Officer, Boundary Commission for England, 35 Great Smith Street, London, SW1P 3BQ.
The Commission publishes all responses it provides to information requests. You can find the responses on this page.
Personal data held by the Commission is subject to the provisions of data protection law currently in force in England. As our work is constitutional, it is not directly affected by the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (‘GDPR’), but is instead subject to the ‘applied GDPR’ regime, established by the Data Protection Act 2018.
Our formal privacy notice, outlines the personal data we collect, the basis on which we do that, what we do with it, and your rights. You may also wish to view our separate page on Privacy and Cookies.
We particularly draw attention to the fact that responses to our statutory consultation (including name and address) are published. Requests to anonymise a consultation response should be submitted (with reasons) to our Information Manager (address above), and will be considered on a case by case basis by the Secretary to the Commission. A consultation response can also be fully withdrawn and deleted on request to the Information Manager.
Specific law restricts the use of electoral registers. In particular, the Commission is not allowed to supply a third party with a copy of a register it has received (or details of any individual within it), unless expressly provided for in the relevant legislation.
You may request a copy of any personal data we hold on you, at any time, by emailing email@example.com, or by writing to the Information Manager at the above address.
