The answers you have given in this recruitment form will be processed by the Highland Council, only to ensure there is a balanced representation on the panel. Any information you give in future Highland Citizens’ Panel questionnaires will be anonymous and will be processed only by the Highland Council, its partners or consultants employed by us. This will be to find out what you think about public services and issues affecting life in Highland. It will be made clear who is running the questionnaire (whether it is Highland Council or one of our partners) and so who will be using the information you provide.
All of the information you give will be held securely and will be treated as confidential. This data will be maintained in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998 and will not be passed on or sold to any other organisation without your prior approval unless this is a legal requirement.
