Supplier data and the Data Protection Act

The Council recognises that personal data regarding sole traders who are not operating as a limited company will be subject to the Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA). The DPA places a statutory duty on the Council to handle personal information in accordance with the data protection principles. 

The information we collect and handle concerning transactions between the Council and its suppliers and the terms thereof, may be used by the Council as part of the Capital Ambition Online Expenditure Analysis Project, which involves the sharing of information collected from sole traders and limited companies (including names and addresses) with other participating London Councils, the purpose of which is to identify opportunities to collaborate in the purchase of common goods and services and other areas of expenditure across London.
