Data Protection in Camden - your rights

Right to object

You have the right to object to Camden Council processing your personal data where we are processing your personal data:
  • based on consent
  • for direct marketing, including profiling  

If you object to us processing your personal data and the processing is based on consent or is for direct marketing, then you can withdraw your consent and ask us at any time to stop processing.  

Please note that Camden does very little processing based on consent as most of our processing is done because the law requires us to undertake functions such as planning, social services functions, council tax recovery and so on.  

Camden does not process your data for direct marketing at all. There are not many cases where you will be able to withdraw consent for processing.  

You also have the right to object to Camden Council processing your personal data where we are processing your personal data:

  • based on the performance of a task in the public interest/exercise of official authority (including profiling).  Please note that Camden does not undertake profiling
  • for purposes of scientific/historical research and statistics.

If you object and the processing is based on the performance of a task in the public interest/exercise of official authority or for the purposes of scientific/historical research and statistics, then Camden must stop processing the personal data.  However, there are two cases where we do not have to stop the processing:

  • where we can show compelling legitimate grounds for the processing that override the data subject’s interests, rights and freedoms. This would be in cases where we are undertaking work such as enforcement work in public safety or environmental health, safeguarding work etc. 
  • where Camden is processing the personal data for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
