Our Data Charter guides how we collect, process and share data ethically. It was co-created with 2 resident panels made up of Camden citizens.
Why we created a Data Charter
We believe that data rights are human rights. We use of a wide range of data to improve residents' experiences with council services.
We know it’s not always easy to have trust in organisations that use your personal information. We want to lead the way and act as a responsible custodian of data.
All organisations in Camden need to work together to have the biggest impact on building trust in data sharing.
Data Charter principles
The principles of our Data Charter are:
- Build trust through transparency
- Provide accountability and oversight
- Make sure data is secure, safe and ethical
- Make sure data is used for public good and be mindful of residents' data
- Be beneficial for all by using an outcomes-based approach
- Camden’s external partners should sign up to the Data Charter principles
- Protect individuals' rights and privacy
- Ensuring that the information we share about data use is clear and accessible
To make sure these principles are kept, we have made a set of commitments in response to the Data Charter.
