You are giving us your personal information to allow us to consider and process your application for the Glasgow Co-operative Social Enterprise funding stream.
We also use your information to verify your identity where required, contact you by post, email or telephone and to maintain our records.
We provide these services to you as part of our statutory function as your local authority. You can find more details of our role on our website. Processing your personal information is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest by the council and entering a funding agreement with you on the basis of your consent.
If you do not provide us with the information we have asked for then we will not be able to provide this service to you.
We are legally obliged to safeguard public funds so we are required to verify and check your details internally for fraud prevention. We may share this information with other public bodies (and also receive information from these other bodies) for fraud checking purposes.
We are also legally obliged to share certain data with other public bodies, such as HMRC and will do so where the law requires this. We will also generally comply with requests for specific information from other regulatory and law enforcement bodies where this is necessary and appropriate.
We may also share your personal data with Jobs & Business Glasgow as part of an assessment and eligibility process. Details about Jobs & Business Glasgow can be found here.
If for any reason we have to share your personal data with any other Third Party in order to fulfil our legal obligations and for reasons of verifying eligibility for funding, we will contact you to seek your consent for any such additional sharing.
If you have provided anyone else's details on this form, please make sure that you have told them that you have given their information to Glasgow City Council. We will only use this information to consider and process your application for funding from this funding stream.

Access to your information
You have the right to request a copy of the personal information that we hold about you.
Correcting your information
We want to make sure that your personal information is accurate, complete and up to date. Therefore you may ask us to correct any personal information about you that you believe does not meet these standards.

Objecting to how we may use your information
You have the right at any time to tell us to stop using your personal information for direct marketing purposes.
Restricting how we may use your information
In some cases, you may ask us to restrict how we use your personal information. This right might apply, for example, where we are checking the accuracy of personal information that we hold about you or we are assessing the objection you have made to our use of your information.
This right might also apply if we no longer have a basis for using your personal information but you don't want us to delete the data. Where this right is realistically applied will mean that we may only use the relevant personal information with your consent, for legal claims or where there are other public interest grounds to do so.
Withdrawing consent to use your information
Where we use your personal information with your consent you may withdraw that consent at any time and we will stop using your personal information for the purpose(s) for which consent was given where possible - please be aware, however, that whilst you have the right to withdraw your consent for us to keep and process your personal data, withdrawal of consent will also require us to discontinue the service that we have contracted with you. This may also require us to reasonably and practically recover any retrievable funds that may have been granted at the time of consent withdrawal.
Please contact us as stated above if you wish to exercise any of these rights.
