We regard your privacy as important, and all employees who have access to your personal and business data or are associated with the handling of that data are obliged to comply with the Data Protection Act.
We do not capture and store any personal and business information about website visitors, except where you voluntarily choose to give us your personal and business details via email, or by using an electronic form, or enquiring about any of our services.
We will only hold your personal and business information for as long as necessary.
Upon request, we will inform you whether personal and business information is stored by us. You may write to:

Fair Processing Notice
Any personal and business data that you provide will be processed in accordance with the Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA) and the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). It will be used by us and our partners to deliver and improve services and fulfil our statutory duties.
We will, as appropriate, retain records relating to the business or individual that is applying for or enquiring about grant funding and may share these details with our partners for the purposes of monitoring, reporting and auditing or the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). This may include the names, contact details and other information relating to individual employees or representatives.
These partners include the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG), Leicestershire County Council and any third-party organisations procured by Leicester City Council to assist in the delivery of the Green BELLE project, for example to carry out a summative assessment of the project.
For more information about how we processes personal data, please refer to the privacy notice on Leicester City Council’s website, as well as the ERDF privacy notice on MHCLG’s website.
Very occasionally we may need to share the personal and business information you have given to us with partner organisations such as the police or other government bodies.
Information will only ever be shared when it is strictly necessary to help us provide effective services and your consent will always be sought if sensitive personal and business data is involved.
Sensitive personal and business data includes – but is not limited to – information about race, religious beliefs, trade union membership or court proceedings. You may have the right to refuse. We will not pass it onto any other parties unless required to do so by law.
There are some circumstances where your consent may not be sought, for example:
- To prevent serious harm to others
- To help prevent or prosecute crime
- As a requirement of statute law or because a court has asked for it
The council has a duty to protect public funds it administers, and may use information held about you for the prevention and detection of fraud and other lawful purposes.
