What information we collect from you?

Your personal information will be used to set up access for you to our litter picking equipment containers which are located throughout South Ayrshire. You can access these containers by logging onto our website. The first time you log on you will be asked to provide personal data if you consent to take part in the Council's litter picking project. You will then be allocated an 'Access Code' which is required to open the storage container to access the litter picking equipment. On any future visits you wish  to litter pick, you will only need to input your email address to obtain the current 'Access Code' for the area you wish to litter pick in.

We will also use your information to contact you should the need arise, such as to follow up on missing equipment or damage.

How long do we keep hold of your information?

We only keep your personal information for the minimum period amount of time necessary. Sometimes this time period is set out in the law, but in most cases it is based on the business need.  We will not keep your information for any longer than it is needed once the pandemic is over.
