Information on the FSA's Evidence Package Tracker privacy policy, why we require data, what we do with the data and your rights.
Last updated

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) will be what is known as the ‘Controller’ of the personal data provided to us.

Purpose and lawful basis for processing 

We need to collect personal data on key staff and external collaborators involved in requesting, producing, coordinating, reviewing and receiving evidence packages and their components that are uploaded to the Evidence Package Tracker. This consists of names, job titles/roles and may in some cases include work contact details.

The purpose is to enable a clear internal understanding of the key participants working on evidence packages, for example, so staff will know who to contact if they need to obtain updates, answer questions, collaborate or circulate information. It will also form part of our internal audit trail.

We do this in line with the performance of our statutory duties and the exercise of the official authorities vested in the FSA and the performance of tasks carried out in the public interest.

We will not collect any personal data from you which we do not need.
