Bovine Viral Diarrhoea (BVD) - phase 6 consultation: data protection impact assessment

Data protection impact assessment for the consultation on phase 6 of Scotland's Bovine Viral Diarrhoea (BVD) Eradication Scheme.

6. Questions to identify data protection issues

6.1 Necessity

The only personal data that is required to complete the consultation is the respondent’s email address, and whether they are responding as an individual or an organisation. Collecting a respondent’s email address allows a confirmation of the consultation response to be sent, as well as a way for the respondent to access their response and change their answers whilst the consultation period is underway.

6.2 Proportionality

Collection of email addresses is a minimally intrusive method of associating a response to an individual or an organisation. It also provides a service to respondents, who can revisit their submission and make amendments until the consultation closes.

6.3 Justification

The overall aim of the project is to provide a clear and concise report for publication, which reflects a robust analysis of the consultation responses, in order to inform the next stages of the BVD eradication scheme.

6.4 Other risks
