Test and Trace Support Payment scheme
GDPR Statement

Data Sharing

The information you submit here will be processed by the Isle of Wight Council. We need your consent to allow us to access your records in the NHS Test and Trace system and confirm that you are eligible for a Test and Trace Support Payment (also known as a Self-Isolation Payment).

You can find more information on this via the NHS Test and Trace Privacy Notice

View the Isle of Wight Council's Privacy Notice

We will carry out checks with the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP), for verification purposes, Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC), for tax and national insurance purposes, and with your employer. We will not share your data with other organisations or individuals outside of the Council for any other purpose.

We will provide information to HMRC about any payments we make because Test and Trace Support Payments (Self-Isolation Payments) will be subject to income tax, but they will not be subject to National Insurance Contributions (NICS). If you are self-employed, you will need to declare the payment on your self-assessment tax return.

To validate your bank account details, we need to share relevant information you've given us with TransUnion. This will be used to ensure your support payment is paid to the correct bank account and to help prevent fraudulent use of support payments.
This is not a credit check and won't impact your credit rating.
For more information on how TransUnion may use your data, please visit https://www.transunion.co.uk/legal-information/privacy-centre.

We never sell your data to third parties or use it for marketing purposes without your consent. All information is processed in accordance with the Council’s data protection policy.

If you wish to request any changes to the way your data is used for the purposes of processing this application, including the withdrawal of consent, you can exercise your rights under GDPR by writing to the Council’s Data Protection Officer.

If you do withdraw your consent, we will not be able to make payments to you. Your consent is necessary to establish your eligibility and to authorise any payments made.
