This is to make it easier to understand and provide you with more information about how the States of Jersey Police may seek to collect and hold additional information about you in relation to the unprecedented challenges we are all facing during the Coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19).
We may seek to collect and process your personal data in response to the recent outbreak of Coronavirus, which is above and beyond what would ordinarily be collected from you, to ensure the safety and well-being of our officers, staff and the general public.
Such information will be limited to what is proportionate and necessary, taking into account of the latest guidance issued by the Government and health professionals, in order to manage and contain the virus. It will enable the Chief Officer to effectively fulfil his functions to keep people safe.
Where Coronavirus related information is to be used for general reporting or statistics, steps will be taken to anonymise the data and general numbers used, wherever possible.
What personal data is being collected?
Personal data is being collected to enable us to identify anyone they come into contact with through their policing tasks who are in any of the high risk categories and would be considered vulnerable and/or infected with Coronavirus.
What is our lawful basis for processing your personal data?
The Data Protection (Jersey) Law 2018 requires specific conditions to be met to ensure that the processing of personal data is lawful. These relevant conditions are below:
Recital 46 of GDPR adds that “some processing may serve both important grounds of public interest and the vital interests of the data subject as for instance when processing is necessary for humanitarian purposes, including for monitoring epidemics and their spread”.
The Chief Officer has a common law power to protect and save lives.
The processing of special categories of personal data, which includes data concerning a person’s health, are prohibited unless specific further conditions can be met. These further relevant conditions are below:
Am I required to provide my personal data under a statutory requirement, or am I obliged to provide it?
Whilst the provision of data cannot be mandated, you are strongly advised that it is in the best interests of all to provide this information to us so we are able to take relevant steps to keep you and others safe.
The information will be managed in confidential manner. All information will be held securely and processed on a ‘need to know’ basis by only a limited number of people. If there is a need to disclose outside of this, the minimal amount of personal data will be used.
How long will my personal data be retained?
We will only keep your information for as long as it necessary, taking into account of Government advice and the on-going risk presented by Coronavirus.
Health information provided by you in relation to this outbreak of Coronavirus will not be used for any other purpose.
When the information is no longer needed for this purpose, it will be securely deleted.
