Direct Payment Support Services privacy notice

Norfolk County Council ("us", "we", or "our") operates this mobile application which enables you to complete work timesheets on the app and for the completed timesheet to be sent to your employer’s payroll provider (hereinafter referred to as the "Service"). 

We are a data controller which means that we are responsible for deciding how we hold and use personal information about you. We are required under data protection legislation to notify you of the information contained in this privacy notice.

This privacy notice informs you how we collect, use, and disclose your personal data when you use our Service and the choices you have associated with that data.  We also provide further details regarding:

Please note we only act as the data controller for the information collected via this app for the purpose of providing the service. We do not act as a data controller for the payroll service itself.
