Information we collect
In this form the Bank of England (‘we’ or the ‘Bank’) collects personal data about you. This information includes contact details and professional information.
Why we need your personal data
We collect your personal data to allow us to organise a number of in-person events that relate to our discussion paper “Transforming data collection from the UK financial sector”. If you do not provide the information then you may not be able to participate in these events.
What we do with your personal data
We use the information to contact you in relation to the organisation of the events. Your information may be shared with other parts of the Bank of England for the purpose of the Bank’s business and related activities. We process your data as necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the Bank.
Where we hold events jointly with other organisations, such as the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), we may share attendance information restricted to event co-ordination only.
We will retain your data prior to and during the in-person events we run in relation to our discussion paper “Transforming data collection from the UK financial sector”. We will keep your personal data for 8 years from your last interaction with us.
You have a number of rights under data protection laws, for example, you have the right to ask us for a copy of the personal data the Bank holds about you. This is known as a ‘Subject Access Request’. You can ask us to change how we process or deal with your personal data, and you may also have the right in some circumstances to have your personal data amended or deleted.
To find out more about those rights, to make a complaint, or to contact our Data Protection Officer, please see our privacy page.
