Keeping your data safe
The safety of your information is our top priority. You can read our privacy notice before completing your census questionnaire. When we publish the statistics from the census they are completely anonymous, so none of your personal information is shared or published.
We have a strict security regime that follows government standards. This includes physical and IT security measures to protect your data.
All our systems, staff and suppliers and how we process things must protect your confidentiality by law. Laws in place that cover protection of your data include the:
- Data Protection Act 2018
- UK General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
- Census Act (Northern Ireland) 1969
- Census (Confidentiality) (Northern Ireland) Order 1991
We follow these to the letter.
