Coventry City Council privacy notice

Who we share your information with

Sometimes we may need to share your information with other organisations. When this happens we have an agreement that they will keep your details safe, obey the Data Protection law and only use them for the reasons you asked.
These agreements are called Data Sharing Agreements (DSA). Before we do anything, we check to make sure your details will be protected.
We will ask your permission before we share details, unless we have to protect someone and stop them getting hurt, or because of legal reasons such as:

  • if we take a child into care
  • if the court orders us to provide the information
  • if someone is taken into care under mental health law

Sometimes we will share information when we think that sharing is much more important than your privacy, such as:

  • to protect a child or adult at risk of harm
  • if there are serious risks to the public, our staff or to other professionals
  • to find and stop crime

If we have to share information urgently and cannot contact you first, we will make a record of what we share and why we shared it and let you know what we have done and why - if we think it is safe to do so.
