Why we collect and use this information

We collect and use personal information in our official authority as a fire and rescue service. For the collection and use of special categories of personal data, the legal basis that we rely on is Article 9 (2)(g) of the GDPR, and Schedule 1 part 2(6) of the Data Protection Act 2018 which relates to statutory and government purposes.

Storing this information

We keep this information within a database which is subject to strict security controls to ensure that access is limited to those who need to see it.

For our work with young firesetters, we will keep this information until the young person’s 18th birthday, or, in the case of vulnerable adults, until the age of 25 if a SEN/EH&C Plan is in place.

For our youth intervention programmes (Cadets, Salamandar, SPARC, Prince’s Trust), we keep personal information for three years.

Who we share this information with and why

We provide information back to referring agencies on individuals who engage in our courses relating to their outcomes and performance.

We have a responsibility to promote social well being. To do this we often work closely with other authorities. To ensure you receive the relevant services, we may need to share your personal and sensitive information with other authorities and partners such as:

In almost all such cases we will make you aware if your information is intended to be used in this way and provide the opportunity for you to say no. The exception to this is when we are required by law to pass on information such as where a child is at risk of harm or when criminal activity has been disclosed.

Where it is not possible or practical to obtain your consent to share sensitive personal information, we will only share the information if we consider it necessary to protect your vital interests. Such interests are for the protection of life, reduction of crime and accidents and for improving health.

Sharing information with our partners will only take place under strict data sharing protocols with tight security in terms of the transfer of information.
