Legal scope/basis

The legal basis for my surveying you is the public interest task which enables me as an elected representative to engage with you where the processing of personal data is necessary for an activity that supports or promotes democratic engagement. The UK Data Protection Act 2018 provides (in section 8(e)) that one of the circumstances in which the public interest task ground can be applied is where the processing of personal data is necessary for an activity that supports or promotes democratic engagement.

In processing any special categories of personal data provided to me in response to this survey I shall be relying on Article 9 (2) (g) of the UK GDPR used in conjunction with Schedule 1 Part 2 of the UK Data Protection Act 2018 that: processing is necessary for reasons of substantial public interest, on the basis of Union or Member State law which shall be proportionate to the aim pursued, respect the essence of the right to data protection and provide for suitable and specific measures to safeguard the fundamental rights and the interests of the data subject; Schedule 1 Part 2 of the UK Data Protection Act 2018 contains specific ‘substantial public interest’ conditions for Article 9(2)(g).
