6. Data portability
The Information Commissioner’s Office has recognised the unprecedented challenges all are facing during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and that people may experience delays when making requests for information during the pandemic.
Whilst you are still able to make a request, we ask that you consider if the information is required at this time or if the request could be made at a later date. If you do make a request, please be aware that your response may not be complete in whole or in part.
This is due to government wide measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Oldham Council is currently handling a large volume of business-critical work aimed towards the protection and safeguarding of residents during the COVID-19 outbreak, and as such the business area may not be able to respond to your request within the expected timeframe or provide full information for the completion of your request.
You may request restriction of processing (quarantining) of your personal information for certain reasons, such as, for example:
- if you have objected to the processing or asked us for erasure and we need time to consider your request and let you know our decision
- you require us to retain your information for the establishment, exercise or defence of your own legal rights
