Data protection and access to information

Asking for information about yourself

The UK General Data Protection Regulation  gives people the right to know what personal information Hart District Council holds about them. This is known as a subject access request. 

Personal data is anything that can identify you. It includes your:

  • name, date of birth, National Insurance number, NHS number, passport number, nationality 
  • contact details including address, email, and phone number
  • IP address, device, and browser details
  • credit card and bank account
  • any identifying images of you

Read our guide and make a subject access request

Access to non-personal information is managed under the Freedom of Information Act. For information about Freedom of Information requests and to make a request please visit our Freedom of Information webpage.
