3. How we collect and use information
The information we collect about you and how we use it depends mainly on the reasons for your business with us. We may get information from others to check the details you give to us and to improve our services. We may give information to other organisations as the law allows, for example to safeguard against crime. Your personal information may be shared and disclosed between The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead Local Welfare Provision, Social Services, housing benefit and council tax support teams, and The Department for Work and Pensions for assessment purposes.
We may also check your information within the departmental IT systems to determine how we might be able to further assist you.
