Privacy Notice: How long is personal data retained?

The length of time that we keep personal data depends upon our reasons for collecting it.  Details of our retention periods for specific circumstances are set out in our Records Management and Retention Policy.

Please note that we have certain statutory obligations to retain some data in connection with our statutory obligations as a public authority.

We may also retain data in order to defend or pursue claims.  In some cases the law imposes a time limit for such claims (for example 3 years for personal injury claims or 6 years for contract claims).  The OPCC will retain some personal data for this purpose as long as it is believed to be necessary to be able to defend or pursue a claim.  In general, the OPCC will endeavour to keep data only for as long as it is required.  This means that it will be deleted when it is no longer needed.
