Privacy Policy

This privacy notice relates to the personal data processed by the Office of Sir Greg Knight, Member of Parliament for East Yorkshire, in relation to casework and policy queries.

Who is the Data Controller?

The Data Controller is Sir Greg Knight the Member of Parliament for East Yorkshire.

What does the Office do?

The office discharges the duties and functions of an elected Member of Parliament. As part of this work, we conduct constituency casework and respond to policy queries, for which we must process personal data of East Yorkshire constituents.

How do we process data?

This Office processes constituents’ data under the lawful basis of public task. In instances where this lawful basis is not sufficient and explicit consent is required, a member of the office will contact the constituent to establish consent. In rare cases, we may also process data under the lawful basis of legitimate interest.

In any event, we are committed to ensuring that the information we collect and use is appropriate for this purpose, and does not constitute an invasion of privacy.

Will we share your data to anyone else?

We may pass personal data to a third-party in the course of dealing with a case, such as local authorities, government agencies, public bodies, health trusts, regulators, and so on. Any third parties that we may share data with are obliged to keep your details securely, and to use them only for the basis upon which they were originally intended. When they no longer need your data to fulfil this service, they will dispose of the details.

We will not use your personal data in a way that goes beyond your reasonable expectations in contacting us.

For how long will you keep personal data?

Casework and policy queries are revisited repeatedly. It is therefore in the interests of both our office and our constituents to retain data related to these functions until its disposal is requested.
