Third Party Information

How to see third party information we hold

Third party information is any information we get from:

  • Private individuals
  • Public sector bodies
  • Private sector businesses
  • Voluntary and charitable groups

The Freedom of Information Act and the Environmental Information Regulations provide a right of access to any recorded information we hold. This includes information created by someone else and is known as third party information.

Applying to see third party information

There are exemptions for personal information. If we apply an exemption to some or all of the information that you have asked for it means that we can withhold that information. 

You can also find out about the General Data Protection Regulations and Data Protection Act 2018 and your rights on our website.

Can I see third party information about me?

You can apply to see personal information we hold about you under The Data Protection Act.  

However, you might not be allowed to see all third party information that has been provided about you. We explain this in more detail in our page about how to access your own personal information.

For more information, see our Subject Access pages.
