Labour, as a political party, has a key role to play in the democratic process.  Data protection law recognises that it is in the public interest for political parties to collect and process personal information, including about political options.  We also collect, with consent, contact information that people freely provide to us, such as email addresses and telephone numbers.

Like all parties, we are entitled to the full electoral register.  We use this information both to contact you by post and also, alongside other information, to help to make our campaigning as relevant to you as possible.

We also obtain personal data from reputable commercial suppliers where we are confident that they have a lawful basis for selling it to us.  We combine this information with other data, such as local election results, census information, and similar public data.  This is sometimes called 'profiling', and you can find out much more about how and why we use your data, including information which you may have given to us online, in the Labour Party's privacy policy, which you can access at


  1. The Labour Party is a democratic socialist Party. It believes that by the strength of our common endeavour we achieve more than we achieve alone, so as to create for each of us the means to realise our true potential and for all of us a community in which power, wealth and opportunity are in the hands of the many not the few; where the rights we enjoy reflect the duties we owe and where we live together freely, in a spirit of solidarity, tolerance and respect.
  2. To these ends we work for:
    • A. A DYNAMIC ECONOMY, serving the public interest, in which the enterprise of the market and the rigour of competition are joined with the forces of partnership and co-operation to produce the wealth the nation needs and the opportunity for all to work and prosper with a thriving private sector and high-quality public services where those undertakings essential to the common good are either owned by the public or accountable to them
    • A JUST SOCIETY, which judges its strength by the condition of the weak as much as the strong, provides security against fear, and justice at work; which nurtures families, promotes equality of opportunity, and delivers people from the tyranny of poverty, prejudice and the abuse of power
    • AN OPEN DEMOCRACY, in which government is held to account by the people, decisions are taken as far as practicable by the communities they affect and where fundamental human rights are guaranteed
    • A HEALTHY ENVIRONMENT, which we protect, enhance and hold in trust for future generations.
  3. Labour is committed to the defence and security of the British people and to co-operating in European institutions, the United Nations, the Commonwealth and other international bodies to secure peace, freedom, democracy, economic security and environmental protection for all.
  4. Labour shall work in pursuit of these aims with trade unions and co-operative societies and also with voluntary organisations, consumer groups and other representative bodies.
  5. On the basis of these principles, Labour seeks the trust of the people to govern.
