The Council may also share your personal information with joint or multi agents or developers we partner with to provide services on our behalf. See our corporate Privacy Notice at www.camden.gov.uk/privacy for more details.


Our legal basis for processing your data

Data protection law requires every organisation to have a lawful basis for processing any personal information about an individual. Camden Council processes your personal data under a lawful ground known as ‘public task’. This means that the processing of your data is necessary for us to fulfil the request you have made to us e.g. when you ask for information about one of our properties.
