The purpose(s) for which we are processing your personal data is to support the delivery and administration of the GHG HUG2 and GHG HUG2 (together the Scheme).
Delivery and administration of the Scheme may require linking of your data to other datasets held by Chesterfield Borough Council or the Department for Energy Security and Net Zero (DESNZ). The council may collect some special category data (eg health information) in order to support administration and installation, but this data will not be shared with DESNZ.
DESNZ will be conducting an evaluation of the Scheme. This may include you being contacted to take part in further research. Where the research involves processing of personal data in addition to that already collected for delivery of the Scheme, you will be given the opportunity to opt-in to that research at the point of contact.
Your data may also be used for statistical, research and fraud prevention purposes.
Legal basis of processing
The legal basis for processing your personal data is:
Public task: Processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest.
The specific public task is the delivery, administration and evaluation of, as well as statistical, research and fraud prevention purposes relating to, the Scheme, a government funded scheme aiming to raise the energy efficiency of low energy performance homes (those rated at EPC Band D, E, F or G), targetting off-gas grid homes. Funding is provided to Local Authorities who engage consumers and manage the delivery of installations in homes.
Consent: Use of your personal data to contact you to take part in further research will be subject to your consent.
Sensitive personal data
Sensitive personal data is personal data revealing racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, or trade union membership, and the processing of genetic data, biometric data for the purpose of uniquely identifying a natural person, data concerning health or data concerning a natural person's sex life or sexual orientation.
Substantial public interest - The legal basis for processing your sensitive personal data is that processing is necessary for reasons of substantial public interest for the exercise of a function of the Crown, a Minister of the Crown, or a government department; the exercise of a function conferred on a person by an enactment; the exercise of a function of either House of Parliament; or the administration of justice; and an appropriate policy document is in place. In this case, the information is necessary to enable us to organise installation in your home.
Your personal data will be shared with:
- Marches Energy Agency

- The Department for Energy Security and Net Zero (DESNZ) and its contractors for delivery, administration and evaluation of the scheme, statistical, research and fraud prevention purposes

We may share your data if we are required to do so by law, for example by court order or to prevent fraud or other crime.
As your personal data will be stored on our IT infrastructure it will also be shared with our data processor Microsoft (who provide email and file storage services).
