DWP is the data controller for pages on this site. A data controller determines how and why personal data is processed.
Our Personal Information Charter explains how and why DWP uses your personal information, and your rights and responsibilities. It covers all of the services that DWP provides, and not just this website.
If you follow a link to a service provided by another government department, agency or local authority, that organisation will:
- Be the data controller
- Be responsible for processing any data you share with them
- Publish and manage their own privacy notice with details of how to contact them
