Coronavirus Privacy Statement
The information you submit here will be processed by South Staffordshire Council. We need your consent so that we can access your records in the NHS Test and Trace system to confirm that you are eligible for the Self-Isolation / Test and Trace Payment Scheme. You can find more information on this via the NHS Test and Trace Privacy Notice
We will carry out checks with the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP), for verification purposes, Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC), for tax and national insurance purposes, and with your employer.
We will not share your data with other organisations or individuals outside of the Council for any other purpose. We will provide information to HMRC about any payments we make because Self-Isolation / Test and Trace Payments are subject to Tax Contributions.
If you are self-employed, you will need to declare the payment on your self-assessment tax return. We may use some automated decision-making to determine if you are eligible to access funds. This means that a decision may be made by automated means, without any human involvement.
Your rights under the Data Protection Act 2018 allow you to object to any automated-decision making used in this process. If you do, there may be a significant delay in the processing of your application.
We never sell your data to third parties or use it for marketing purposes without your consent. All information is processed in accordance with the Council's data protection policy.
If you wish to request any changes to the way your data is used for the purposes of processing this application, including the withdrawal of consent , you can exercise your rights under GDPR in writing to the Council's Data Protection Officer.
If you do withdraw your consent, we will not be able to continue payments to you. Your consent is necessary to establish your eligibility and to authorise any payments made.
In submitting an application you are confirming that you have read, understood and consented to your data being processed in this way for the purposes of assessing your eligibility for a Self-Isolation / Test and Trace Payment.
