Any personal information that you give to me will be handled confidentially by me and the staff and volunteers in my office, in line with the requirements of the Data Protection Act 2018.

What information do we collect about you?
My office collects personal information that is supplied to me in my role as a Member of Parliament. It includes information supplied by my constituents and others in relation to matters which I have been asked to pursue in the interests of individuals and groups who live in my constituency such as: details of specific cases, information provided by signatories on petitions, responses to questionnaires, and contact details for the purpose of communicating news and updates. I also collect information on use of my website using cookies.
How will we use the information about you?
If you ask me to pursue a matter on your behalf, I will use your information in order to pursue the matter you have raised with me. My staff and volunteers will normally see this information to find help and advice for you. Your personal and sensitive personal information may be passed to other agencies (such as the Department for Work and Pensions, the CMS, the local Housing Department) if I believe this to be necessary to pursue the matter you have raised with me. I intend that only the minimum possible personal information will be shared with other agencies, as necessary to assist you.
If you give me personal information about someone other than yourself, I may need to check the facts with that other person. If you ask me to take action on behalf of a friend or relative I may need to contact that person to confirm that they are happy for me to act on their behalf. If you feel it would not be appropriate for me to contact the other person, you should discuss this with me when you give me their information.
Constituency news and events
I would like to send you information about constituency news and events, but I will not use your contact details to do this unless you have opted in and said that you would like to be sent this information. If you have said that you would like this information, but later change your mind, you have a right at any time to let us know if you no longer wish to be sent this information. If you wish to receive or stop receiving this information, please contact my office by calling 0207 219 8175 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
