What personal data do we need?

The types of personal data you may be asked to supply can be categorised as follows,

  • Your own financial details which you are required by law to supply as part of your application for a service offered by Dublin City Council

 

Contact Details

In order to communicate with you will be asked for contact details. You do not have to provide all contact details but providing more, such as email, phone, address, makes it easier to communicate.

Details of Personal Circumstances

If you wish to apply for a particular service from the local authority you will be asked for a varying amount of personal details specific to you and your family, in order to support your application. Dublin City Council have set out the information we require in a series of separate and distinct application forms relevant to each service. Specific details of processing for each service will be set out in the respective application forms.

  • The personal data which is required to be provided as part of your application and whether it includes any “special categories of data” such as data relating to your health;
  • The purposes for which your personal data will be processed;

  • Details of other organisations with whom we may need to share your data;
