  • HS2 Growth Strategy Survey Privacy Notice

    For the purposes of the Data Protection Act 1998 (and the General Data Protection Regulation which will replace the DPA on 25 May 2018), the ‘controller’ of the personal data which you provide in the attached form is the West Yorkshire Combined Authority (“WYCA”, “we”, “us”) of Wellington House, 40-50 Wellington St, Leeds LS1 2DE (tel: 0113 251 7272). WYCA is registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office with registration number ZA051694.

    WYCA is collecting this data and will process it for the purpose of informing the Leeds City Region HS2 Growth Strategy. We would also like to keep you informed regarding future developments of the HS2 Growth Strategy. We will only send you this information if you consent to receive it.

    Information provided to WYCA will be processed on the basis of our requirement to perform tasks in the public interest, which also form part of our official functions, namely transport, economic development and regeneration. We do not require your consent to use such data for this purpose.

    WYCA will not share your personal information with any other organisation or third party. There may be other circumstances in which we may share or use certain information about you, which are:

    1. if we have a legal obligation to do so or if we are required or requested to do so by a competent authority such as the police or a court;
    2. if we need to use or disclose your information to obtain legal advice or in connection with legal proceedings;
    3. if we need to share your information to protect your vital interests if you are unable to give us consent or it is unreasonable for us to ask for your consent in the circumstances (e.g. if you are injured). 

    We will retain your information for the duration of the consultation phase of the project in accordance with our information retention policy and on the expiration of such period we will safely delete it.

    As a data subject you have a number of rights under the DPA and the upcoming GDPR. These include the right to access the information which we hold about you. In some cases you may have a right to have your personal data rectified, erased or restricted, and to object to certain use of your data. You have an absolute right to demand that you stop receiving marketing information.

    You may also withdraw your consent at any time by contacting us at the address provided. This would not affect the legality of what we do with your personal data before you withdraw consent and would not stop us from continuing to use your data to the extent that we do not require your consent. It would stop us from further using data for purposes which require your consent (marketing).

    If you are unsatisfied with the manner in which we collect or handle your personal data you have a right to make a complaint to the Information Commissioner’s Office. Information about how to make complaints can be found on the ICO’s website at https://ico.org.uk
