Ashford Borough Council provides a large number of services to a variety of people. In order to offer these services it is often necessary to collect and use personal data. We may collect personal data from residence in the borough, other members of the public, current, past and prospective employees, clients, customers and suppliers. In addition the council may be required by law to collect and use information in order to comply with the requirements of central government.

Ashford Borough Council regards the fair and lawful processing of any personal information as fundamental to its successful operations and essential to maintaining confidence between the council and those with whom it carries out business. The council therefore fully endorses and adheres to the principles of the General Data Protection Regulation and related implementation legislation.
