Right to object

You have a right to object to us processing your personal data where the basis of the processing is based on the performance of a task in the public interest or in exercise of our official authority.

However, this right will not apply where the Council has demonstrated overriding grounds to continue processing or for the establishment, exercise and/or defence of a legal claim.
________________________________________

For example
You might seek to exercise your right to object to the Council processing data regarding your housing application but there may be a potential legal claim which the Council is seeking to establish.

You might seek to exercise your right to object to the Council processing data regarding your waste collection but the issue of public health might be demonstrated to be an overriding ground.
________________________________________

The right to object also applies to us processing your data for direct marketing and there are no exceptions to this right. You can exercise this right by clicking on the 'unsubscribe' or 'opt-out' link in the marketing emails we send you. To opt out of other forms of marketing (such as postal marketing), then please contact us using the contact details provided in the privacy notice you received when we first collected your data.

Finally, you can also object to your data being processed for research purposes unless the Council can establish that such research is in the public interest.

You can exercise your right to object by completing our Objection Form and sending it to us: Senior Admin and Elections Officer, West Lancashire Borough Council, 52 Derby Street, Ormskirk, Lancashire L39 2DF or emailing it to us: freedomofinformation@westlancs.gov.uk.
