Dear Dolce Far-Niente,
 
Oxford City Council – Reference: 8914
 
Further to the acknowledgement below, I can respond to your Freedom of
Information Act 2000 request received on 6th January 2020 as follows:
 
Please see attached.
 
 
You will note, we have not provided specific addresses on council
dwellings. This is because the Council believes the information requested
constitutes personal data of the occupier.
 
Section 40
Under s.1(1)(a) FOIA I can confirm the Council does hold the addresses.
However, I consider this to be personal information. The Council has not
received consent from the people concerned to disclose their addresses. To
release this information would contravene the data protection principles
contained in the Data Protection Act 2018.  Therefore, I  consider that
Sections 40 (2) of the FOIA is engaged.  
 
This email constitutes a Refusal Notice under section 17 of the Freedom of
Information Act 2000 and exemptions under section  40 (2) of the FOIA is
applied.
 
40- Personal information
 
(1)Any information to which a request for information relates is exempt
information if it constitutes personal data of which the applicant is the
data subject.
(2)Any information to which a request for information relates is also
exempt information if—
(a)it constitutes personal data which does not fall within subsection (1),
and
(b)the first, second or third condition below is satisfied.
 
3A) The first condition is that the disclosure of the information to a
member of the public otherwise than under this Act—

 a. would contravene any of the data protection principles, or
 a. would do so if the exemptions in section 24(1) of the Data Protection
Act 2018 (manual unstructured data held by public authorities) were
disregarded.

3B)The second condition is that the disclosure of the information to a
member of the public otherwise than under this Act would contravene
Article 21 of the GDPR (general processing: right to object to
processing).]
4A)The third condition is that—
(a)on a request under Article 15(1) of the GDPR (general processing: right
of access by the data subject) for access to personal data, the
information would be withheld in reliance on provision made by or under
section 15, 16 or 26 of, or Schedule 2, 3 or 4 to, the Data Protection Act
2018, or
(b)on a request under section 45(1)(b) of that Act (law enforcement
processing: right of access by the data subject), the information would be
withheld in reliance on subsection (4) of that section.
(5A) The duty to confirm or deny does not arise in relation to information
which is (or if it
were held by the public authority would be) exempt information by virtue
of
subsection (1).
(5B) The duty to confirm or deny does not arise in relation to other
information if or to the
extent that any of the following applies—
(a) giving a member of the public the confirmation or denial that would
have to be
given to comply with section 1(1)(a)—
(i) would (apart from this Act) contravene any of the data protection
principles, or
(ii) would do so if the exemptions in section 24(1) of the Data Protection
Act 2018 (manual unstructured data held by public authorities) were
disregarded;
(b) giving a member of the public the confirmation or denial that would
have to be
given to comply with section 1(1)(a) would (apart from this Act)
contravene
Article 21 of the GDPR (general processing: right to object to
processing);
(c) on a request under Article 15(1) of the GDPR (general processing:
right of
access by the data subject) for confirmation of whether personal data is
being
processed, the information would be withheld in reliance on a provision
listed
in subsection (4A)(a);
(d) on a request under section 45(1)(a) of the Data Protection Act 2018
(law
enforcement processing: right of access by the data subject), the
information
would be withheld in reliance on subsection (4) of that section.
(7) In this section—
"the data protection principles" means the principles set out in—
(a) Article 5(1) of the GDPR, and
(b) section 34(1) of the Data Protection Act 2018;
"data subject" has the same meaning as in the Data Protection Act 2018
(see
section 3 of that Act);
"the GDPR", "personal data", "processing" and references to a provision of
Chapter 2 of Part 2 of the Data Protection Act 2018have the same meaning
as in
Parts 5 to 7 of the Data Protection Act 2018 (see section 3(2), (4), (10),
(11) and
(14) of that Act).
(8) In determining for the purposes of this section whether the lawfulness
principle in
Article 5(1)(a) of the GDPR would be contravened by the disclosure of
information,
Article 6(1) of the GDPR (lawfulness) is to be read as if the second
sub-paragraph
(disapplying the legitimate interests gateway in relation to public
authorities) were
omitted.
 
 
If you disagree with any part of the response to your request, you are
entitled to ask the Council for an internal review of the decision(s)
made.  You may do this by writing to the Monitoring Officer, by either

Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF.
