As a Town Council we obtain, create and manage a large amount of information relating to our services, customers and partners which require the Council to consider, adopt and follow set policies.
We are committed to both the concepts of transparency and open government but recognise the importance of protecting the privacy of our customers and employees. We intend to achieve this by ensuring that we have clear and understandable rules about the information we collect, hold and share.
Our aim is to ensure that we have the right information to allow us to improve and continue to improve customer service and by managing that information effectively and efficiently, to provide the best value services for customers.
Chard Town Council is currently reviewing all policies, which follow below.
