Data protection

The council is responsible for public services and facilities within Aberdeenshire. We provide a range of services as well as doing regulatory and administrative activities. These include providing education, child protection and care services (supporting early years, vulnerable adults and the elderly), tax collection, welfare benefits and grants and regulatory, enforcement and licensing activities. To deliver services to our citizens and communities it is necessary for us to collect, gather and process personal data about individuals.
