Data Protection in Camden - your rights

Right to erasure

You have the right to ask us to delete or remove (erase) your personal data where one of these applies:
  • the data is no longer necessary
  • it was processed with consent which has been withdrawn and there are no other legal grounds to keep it
  • Camden’s data processing data was unlawful 
  • Camden has a lawful obligation to erase it
  • the data was processed online with parental consent


Please note Camden does not have to erase your information where one of these exemptions applies:

  • Camden needs to use it to comply with a legal obligation or for the performance of a public interest task or exercise of official authority.  For example, we must keep adoption records for a specific period, and there are statutory duties on the council such as safeguarding and council tax that require us to process personal data.  This means you cannot ask us to remove your personal data to stop us e.g. collecting council tax from you or from contacting you about child welfare matters etc.  
  • for public health purposes in the public interest such as dealing with pandemic flu.
  • where Camden needs to use the information in legal proceedings.  
  • where we are exercising artistic or journalistic freedom of expression.
  • where erasure would undermine archiving in the public interest or scientific or historical research.
