Parking enforcement and permits privacy notice

Parking enforcement and permits privacy notice

This privacy notice explains what information the council needs in order to deliver the parking service. 

In order to provide this service, it is necessary for the council to collect, store and process personal data relating to customers. 

Safeguards are in place to ensure that this data is kept secure and the privacy of individuals is protected.

Who is responsible for your information?

We issue residents parking permits and on-street parking fines on behalf of Derbyshire County Council. For this processing, Chesterfield Borough Council is a data processor on behalf of Derbyshire County Council, who is the data controller.

For other parking permits (monthly or annual car park permits) and off-street parking fines, Chesterfield Borough Council is the data controller for the personal information collected.
