When we remove or destroy personal data

Whilst you are part of an enrolled Environmental Body (EB) we have the right to collect, store and process your personal data in relation to that EB to ensure that we can effectively regulate the LCF scheme. The following sets out how long you can expect us to keep your personal data.

Personal data (belonging to)

Retention period

Enrolled EBs active contacts and governing members Indefinitely, until the person falls into one of the categories below.
Enrolled EBs inactive contacts (where we have been informed that they have left the organisation) (this does not include governing members)                                                     Upon request.
Enrolled EBs inactive governing members (where we have been informed that they have left the organisation)                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      Where we are informed that a governing member has left an EB we will make their personal information 'inactive'. However due to the need to regulate the LCF and ensure compliance with the Landfill Tax Regulations 1996 (Regulations), we will retain the personal data of former governing members for a period of four years, in case retrospective non-compliance comes to light in the future.
Voluntarily revoked EBs contacts and governing members     One month following formal notification of voluntary revocation.
Dissolved EBs contacts and governing members One month following formal recognition of dissolved status.
Forcibly revoked EB contacts (but not governing members or those involved in the management of the EB) One month following formal notification of forcible revocation.
Forcibly revoked EBs governing members In perpetuity, to maintain a register of anyone who has controlled or been involved in the management of a previously compulsory revoked EB pursuant to paragraph 33 (1) (g) of the Landfill Tax Regulations 1996 which excludes these individuals from being involved in the management of an EB in the future.
