The Scheme’s Data Controller (The FAPAC Coordinator) is responsible for ensuring its compliance with current Data Protection law and can be contacted at the above address or telephone number.  The Scheme is registered with the Information Commissioners Office as a Crime Reduction Partnership. Registration Number: Z6393724

Data Subjects processed

  • Offenders: Individuals involved in crime and anti-social behaviour which may adversely affect the interests of Partnership members or the general public in Shepway including individuals who travel to or from the area and who may engage in crime and anti-social behaviour elsewhere.

Purpose of processing offender’s personal data

  • Members of the Scheme have a right to protect their property, staff and customers from crime and anti-social behaviour and to exclude from their premises any individuals who they believe represent a threat to their property, customers, staff or the public or whom they wish to exclude for any other lawful reason. The Scheme processes Offenders’ personal data for the purpose of managing an Exclusion Scheme on behalf of its Members and discharging its constituted purpose as a “Partnership Against Crime”.
  • The Scheme’s area of operation and its Exclusion Scheme extends across the District of Shepway whilst maintaining strong links with similarly constituted partnerships in Kent and Nationally through the National Association of Business Crime Partnerships.

Lawful Basis of Processing (Legitimate Interest) and balance of interests

  • FAPAC  Members’ ‘legitimate interests’ provides the lawful basis on which it may process specific items of Offenders’ personal data for specific purposes without Offenders’ consent.
  • FAPAC has assessed the impact of its processing on Offenders’ rights and freedoms, balanced them against its Members’ and the publics own rights and concluded that its Members’ and the publics rights prevail over Offenders’ rights in this specific matter.  This means that, for the purpose of managing an exclusion scheme, as well as ‘preventing and detecting’ crime, FAPAC’s primary ‘basis in law’ for processing Offenders’ personal data is ‘legitimate interests’ and therefore FAPAC can process Offenders’ personal data without requiring their consent.

Categories and types of personal data processed

Offenders:

  • Offender’s name and facial image and any relevant information about the nature of his/her activities; the purpose of this processing is to enable Members to identify Offenders in order to submit reports about them, to include them in a list or gallery of excluded persons (if appropriate and in line with the Scheme’s Rules & Protocols), and to provide information / operational intelligence about them which may be necessary to protect the safety of Members, their staff, property, customers and the public.  This data may be shared among Members and other legitimately constituted BCRP’s or Partnership’s Against Crime.
  • Offenders’ postal and email addresses, telephone number(s) and other contact details; the purpose of this processing is to enable the Scheme to communicate with Offenders from time to time. For example to send confirmation of exclusions, rules of the exclusion scheme, or confirmation that exclusions have expired.  Such data will not be shared with Members unless specifically requested for a lawful purpose such as making a crime report or instigating a civil recovery process.
  • Offenders’ ethnicity; is special category data. We will process this only to enable accurate identification of offenders.
  • Information and Intelligence about incidents in which an Offender has been involved; the purpose of this processing is (1) to enable FAPAC to defend its legal rights against any claim or suit by an Offender or other party.(2) To enable members to take effective countermeasures against actual or potential threats to them, their staff their property and the public represented by the data subject. (3) Such data will only be shared with FAPAC Members in addition to the Scheme’s Data Controller and Board of Management if it is necessary to achieve reason (2) above.

It will be retained for a further 12 months in the Scheme’s database (which can only be accessed by the Data Controller) after which time it will be irrevocably deleted.
  • If during the 12 months when an Offender’s data is circulated among Members he/she is reported for another incident involving theft,  threat or damage to any Member’s property, staff or the public, his/her name and facial image will be circulated among Members for a further 24 months from the date of the second report.  Additionally, the Offender may be excluded from all the properties of all Members for 12 months, and this fact will be shared with Members.
