As a local authority in many cases we have a legal duty to carry out many of our functions or we are obliged to carry out tasks in the public interest. This means it is not always necessary to obtain your consent or permission.

It may be necessary to share your personal information with external agencies such as ECO agents and installers like Care and Repair Northamptonshire and Northamptonshire Energy Advice Service in order to deal with your applicable.  However, no other third parties will have access to your information, unless the law allows them to do so.
