How we use your information
The Council is required to maintain a register of landlords under the Antisocial Behaviour etc. (Scotland) Act 2004. We may use the personal data you provide as part of this in a number of ways, including:
• to contact you regarding making a new application or renewing an existing registration;
• to contact you if they require further information regarding your application;
• to enable the Council to make a decision about a new application or existing registration;
• to inform you of the decision to approve or refuse an application;
• to inform you of the decision to revoke a registration;
• to be displayed, as required, on the public register
Our legal basis
Whenever the Council processes personal data we need to make sure we have a legal basis for doing so. We understand the Council’s basis in data protection law to be Article 6(1)(e) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller (i.e. under the Antisocial Behaviour etc. (Scotland) Act 2004). If you do not provide your personal details we will be unable to add you to the register of landlords, and it is a criminal offence to rent out a property without registering with the Council.
