The Data Protection Act 1998 gives you the right to know who holds information about you and what is done with the data. The law says that we have to tell you who is the “Data Controller” – this is the person or organisation that decides how your information is used and stored. In the case of applications to the North Tyneside 16-19 Bursary Scheme, the Data Controller is North Tyneside Council.
Your information will be kept safe and secure and treated with care and respect. It will only be used to process your bursary application. We may need to check some of the information you have provided against other information held by the Council, in order to decide whether you are eligible for a bursary. For instance, we may check our records to make sure you are entitled to Free School Meals, if you have ticked this section of the form.
We have to pass some statistical information to the Education Funding Agency for monitoring purposes, but this will not include anything that can identify individuals.
More information can be found in the data protection section.
If you have any queries about how we use your information, please contact:
