Data protection

Responses to this consultation will be treated in accordance with section 22 of the Gender Recognition Act. This provides protection for the privacy of a person who has applied for and/or obtained a Gender Recognition Certificate by making it a criminal offence to disclose information acquired in an official capacity about a person’s gender history or about their application to the Panel, unless a specific exception applies.

Information provided in response to consultations, including personal information, may be subject to publication or disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, the GDPR and Data Protection Act 2018 or the Environmental Information Regulations 2004. The Government Equalities Office will process your personal data in accordance with the GDPR and Data Protection Act 2018, and in the majority of circumstances this will mean that your personal data will not be disclosed to third parties.

The Government may publish responses received from organisations. If you want all, or any part, of a response to be treated as confidential, please explain why you consider it to be confidential. If a request for disclosure of the information you have provided is received, your explanation about why you consider it to be confidential will be taken into account, but no assurance can be given that confidentiality can be maintained. An automatic confidentiality disclaimer generated by your IT system will not, of itself, be regarded as binding on the Department.
