Data Protection

At the Joint Nature Conservation Committee (JNCC) we collect personal information from our staff, partners and members of the public. We do this so we can provide our core services and comply with legal requirements. These pages explain how and why we use personal data, how we aim to ensure it is protected, secure and used appropriately, and the rights you have in relation to this.


Our policy

Our Data protection policy provides the framework for ensuring that JNCC meets the necessary legislative obligations under the UK General Data Protection Regulation (UK GDPR) and the Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA 18). 


Privacy notices

To ensure we meet the requirement to process personal data in a transparent way we must provide data subjects with accessible information about how their personal data will be used. We use privacy notices to do this.


Your rights

Data protection laws (mainly UK General Data Protection Regulation (UKGDPR) and Data Protection Act 2018) give you the right to clarity on how your personal information is used and managed. You also have legal rights about the way we manage and use your data, including the right to:

  • ask for a copy of it;
  • make changes to your data if it’s inaccurate;
  • ask us to stop doing something with your data.

Our Guide to Your Data Rights will explain these rights – and the other rights you have – in more detail.



If you have any questions about how we manage and use your data or would like to ask for a copy of the data we hold, our Data Protection Manager can help:


Address: Data Protection Manager, Joint Nature Conservation Committee, Quay House, 2 East Station Road, Fletton Quays, Peterborough PE2 8YY
