Why we are collecting your personal data
Your responses and the personal information you provide in your responses is being collected and processed by The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) to help organise engagement events on the Initial National Cyber Security Skills Strategy. You can submit your responses anonymously. If you choose to provide your name and/or contact details, it will enable DCMS to update you on the dates and locations of the engagement events.

Our legal basis for processing your personal data
The Data Protection Legislation states that, as a government department, the department may process personal data as necessary for the effective performance of a task carried out in the public interest i.e. a call for views.

With whom we will be sharing your personal data
Your data will remain only within the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport.
Google Forms is the online survey platform used to conduct this questionnaire. Google privacy policy can be found here: Google is the DCMS corporate storage and collaboration tool and your data will not be shared with Google but will remain on the DCMS network.

If you want the information that you provide to be treated as confidential, please be aware, that under the FOIA, there is statutory Code of Practice with which public authorities must comply and which deals, amongst other things, with obligations of confidence. In view of this, it would be helpful if you could explain to us why you regard the information you have provided as confidential. If we receive a request for disclosure of the information, we will take full account of your explanation, but we cannot give an assurance that confidentiality can be maintained in all circumstances. An automatic confidentiality disclaimer generated by your IT system will not, of itself, be regarded as binding on the Department.

How long will we keep your personal data?
Your personal data will be held for two years after the questionnaire is closed for reporting purposes and so that the department is able to contact you regarding the engagement events. By providing your email address you are consenting to being contacted by DCMS in regard to the engagement events.
