Privacy Policy

As the MP for Leicester West, it is important that I and my office can keep in touch with constituents about my work, take up casework on their behalf and ask for views on local issues.

As a Labour MP I also have access to other information which I or my office, or volunteers working with me, will use for campaigning purposes or for communicating with Labour Party members.  In respect of that information, the Labour Party is the data controller, and you should consult their privacy policy (https://labour.org.uk/privacy-policy/ ) for details of what information they hold, why, and how they use and process that information.

This privacy notice explains how I collect, use and store personal data, the legal basis for doing so and provides information about your rights in respect of your personal data for which I am the data controller. 

The registered address for Liz Kendall MP is 42 Narborough Road, Leicester, LE3 0BQ. 

My responsible officer for data protection can be contacted at liz.kendall.mp {at} parliament(.)uk or on 0116 204 4980.

It may be necessary for me to share your information with third party organisations. I will only share information where it is necessary and reasonable to do so, and I will share only the minimum amount of personal information necessary in order to advocate on your behalf. Please see the “who I share your information with” section for further details.

When registering with my website or by completing a form or survey sent to you by my office, you may be asked for personal information. In each case, I will ask for your explicit consent to use your information, and I will only use it for the purposes for which you provide it.

I may communicate by post, email, or phone about my work and to give you the latest news on my campaigns and opportunities to have your say or get involved. I have a legal entitlement to the full electoral register for my constituency, which includes the full name and address of every registered elector and I may write to you in connection with my activities as an MP.

I will only send emails, texts or contact you by telephone where you have provided explicit consent for me to do so. You may withdraw your consent or unsubscribe at any time from communications in any medium by contacting our Data Protection Officer or by using the unsubscribe option I provide in all communications.

Who I share your information with:

When I take up casework on your behalf, it may be necessary for me to share the details you provide with government departments, local authorities and other public bodies. Any third parties that we share your data with are obliged to keep your details securely and only use them in relation to the casework.

I will only share as much information as is necessary to take your case forward. If you have any questions or concerns about how information you provide as part of a casework request is used, please contact my Data Protection Officer for more information.

Other than in the circumstances above, I will not share personal information with other organisations without your explicit consent.

In order to communicate with you about my work as the MP for Leicester West Constituency, it may be necessary for me to transfer personal information to countries or jurisdictions outside the EU. In each case, I will take steps to ensure that the suppliers I use comply with the General Data Protection Regulation or are subject to the Privacy Shield scheme agreed between the European Union and the United States.

 

Legal basis

I will process personal information where I have been given consent to do so, or on the basis that it is in mine and your legitimate interests. 

 

Retention of personal data

I will only collect your personal data in line with the purposes above. I will keep your personal information for as long as it is necessary to fulfil the purposes described in this policy. Information relating to casework will only be retained for as long as it is necessary to resolve or otherwise complete your request, although I may retain a minimum amount of information about closed cases in the event that you contact me again for help.

If you have consented to receive information about my work, I will only retain your personal information so long as I am the MP for Leicester West Constituency, or you ask not to be contacted further.

I ensure all safeguards are taken to protect the personal data that you provide me. 

I will regularly review the personal information I hold to ensure that its use is necessary and proportionate.
