Who we are and what we do

This website is maintained by the Royal Docks Team, a joint initiative by the Mayor of London and Mayor of Newham. Royal Docks Team (‘We’) are responsible for the management and coordination of development and regeneration activities in the Royal Docks Enterprise Zone.

We are not a legally distinct entity. We have been established and are accountable to the GLA.

GLA – also known as City Hall – is London’s regional government and the home of the Mayor of London, the London Assembly and the staff who support them. Find out more about the GLA.
Ian Lister is the Data Protection Officer (DPO) for the GLA, including London Assembly Members and the Greater London Returning Officer. Contact details for the GLA DPO can be found on the GLA privacy rights page

It also explains your privacy choices when using our website as well as your right to access your information.

Cookies

royaldocks.london places a piece of text - a cookie - on your device;
e.g. computer or smartphone. This is done so that we can provide services to you in a reliable and useful way, for example, enabling a service to recognise your device so that you don’t have to give the same information several times for the same task.

A cookie will typically contain the name of the website which placed the cookie on your device, the lifetime of the cookie and its name. It cannot be used to identify you personally.

We use the following types of cookie:
Session cookies: to ensure you are recognised when you move from page to page within our site and that any information you enter is remembered.

Why we handle personal information

Under data protection legislation, the GLA is only allowed to use personal information if we have a proper reason (known as a ‘legal basis’) to do so.

The ‘legal basis’ relied on to process the personal data we hold will depend on the way in which you have engaged with the Royal Docks Team GLA, or the service or product you use or sign up for. In most cases, however, our handling of your personal information will be necessary for the delivery of our public functions. In other words, when we use personal information we do so to deliver better public services to Londoners as individuals and as a whole.
