Data protection

The Data Protection Act 1998 gives you a right to find out what information we hold about you. It governs the way we collect and use personal information. This can include your name, address, date of birth, and information about the services you receive from the Council. The Act gives you the right to make sure that the information we hold about you is accurate, and to have it amended if necessary.

How do I request information?

You can only request information that is about you. You cannot request information about somebody else, even if they are a relative, unless we have their permission.

Request information

Try to include as much detail as you can in your request (e.g. dates, council related reference numbers, your address), to help us identify the information you are requesting.

Please return the completed form to: Access to Information, Corporate Information Management Team, Denbighshire County Council, PO Box 62, Ruthin, LL15 9AZ.

We will get back to you within 40 days.

Will I be charged?

We charge £10 for all requests for information under the Data Protection Act. You will also be asked to provide proof of identity when you make a request.
