Fishing Permit Privacy Policy

What information will we collect about you?

The personal data we collect about you includes:

  • Name
  • Date of birth
  • Address 
  • Contact details

If you request a parking permit we will collect your vehicle registration.

Purpose for processing

We use your personal data to process your request and issue you with a suitable fishing permit. We do not store payment details. Processing is necessary for the performance of a task in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the data controller to issue and inspect a fishing permit for Highwoods Country Park.

Your vehicle registration is required to issue the parking permit.

Failure to provide this information will mean that we are unable to process your permit request.

Agencies and other parties we may share your information with

We will share the following information with the North Essex Parking Partnership (NEPP) for the purpose of issuing you with a parking permit:

  • Name
  • Address
  • Vehicle registration
  • Email address

No other data will be shared or disclosed to any other party outside Colchester Borough Council without your explicit consent, unless we are lawfully able to do so. You can read our main Privacy Policy for full information about how we use your information and protect your privacy.

Length of time we keep your information

Your personal data will be kept by us for 3 years from the end date of the permit. You have the right to contact us and ask for your information to be removed where there is no obligation or statutory requirement for it to be kept. You can exercise this right by contacting countryside@colchester.gov.uk and by giving your name, address and permit reference. Please see the Colchester Borough Council Privacy Policy for more information about your rights: www.colchester.gov.uk/privacy-policy.

We will continually review and update this privacy notice to reflect changes in our processes and procedures, as well as to comply with changes in the law.
