Personal data relates to a living individual who can be identified from that data. 


Identification can be by the information alone or in conjunction with any other information in the data controller’s possession or likely to come into such possession.


The processing of personal data is governed by the Data Protection Act 2018 and the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) 


Who are we?

Isle of Wight Council is the Data Controller. 


This means it decides how your personal data is processed and for what purposes.

Isle of Wight Council are Data Processors. 


This means we are responsible for collecting and processing your personal data. 


This data is collected in the specific programme application form you have filled in. This programme is called the Connect2Work Programme.  This data collection may be collected via a referral form, survey, or via special offers that we may promote from time to time, such as the '16-19 Free Bus Offer', or the 'Key Worker Cycle Scheme'. 


What information is being collected?

The Connect to Work Programme currently asks for information such as your name, age, email address and phone number.

We also currently ask some questions about your travel behaviour, and ask what transport offer you would like to receive.

Our one-off schemes may ask for additional types of personal data specific to that scheme, such as the Key Worker Cycle Scheme which asks for your line manager's email address so that your application can be verified.

How is it collected?

It is collected on the application form, either online, or paper (provided by your College, Provider, or Workplace).


Why is it being collected?

Our legal basis for collecting this data is known as ‘public task’.  This means we are collecting it to perform a task in the public interest. It is also collected so that the general public can participate in our offers. 


We require your explicit consent to collect this data.


How will it be used?

Isle of Wight Council complies with its obligations under the Data Protection Act 2018 and the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) by: keeping personal data up to date; by storing and destroying it securely; by not collecting or retaining excessive amounts of data; by protecting personal data from loss, misuse, unauthorised access and disclosure and by ensuring that appropriate technical measures are in place to protect personal data.

Your data will be analysed anonymously with all other participant data. 


No personal identifiers will be used in the report.


Who will it be shared with?

Isle of Wight Council may need to share your name, email address and phone number with our delivery partners so they can contact you to arrange the transport offer you have chosen. For more information on these providers please contact us.
