Mae'r ICO yn bodoli i'ch grymuso chi drwy gyfrwng gwybodaeth.

Gyda Etholiad Cyffredinol yn dod lan ar 4 Gorffennaf, rydyn ni'n gwybod bydd llawer o bobl yn cael cwestiynau ynghylch sut bydd eu data yn cael ei ddefnyddio yn ystod y ymgyrch etholiad. Mae data personol yn rhan pwysig o ymgyrchoedd gwleidyddol - mae'n galluogi pleidiau gwahanol i ledaenu negeseuon allweddol i bleidleiswyr ac yn helpu i adnabod y problemau mwyaf i bobl gwahanol hefyd.

We understand how important it is for the public to trust in how their personal information is used during elections. And so, we have been working with fellow regulators, with organisations and people who will be handling your personal information during the upcoming election campaign to ensure expectations around compliance with the law are clear. We have worked with the House of Commons Authority to bolster the support available for MPs handling constituency casework. And this week, John Edwards, the Information Commissioner has written to political parties reminding them of their data protection obligations.

Rydyn ni wedi gosod allan atebion i rai o'r cwestiynau cyffredin rydyn ni'n cael ei ofyn yn ystod etholiadau ac yn gosod allan beth gallwch chi disgwyl o ni yn ystod y cyfnod cyn yr etholiad.

Beth i ddisgwyl o bleidiau gwleidyddol ac ymgyrchwyr?

Disgwyl gwybodaeth preifatrwydd clir

Dylai fod yn clir o'r dechrau sut ydy plaid gwleidyddol yn defnyddio eich gwybodaeth personol, a dylai bod yn hawdd i ddeall.

For example, if a political party sends you a form so that you can register for a postal vote then it should be clear how the political party will use that information. It should not come as a surprise to you if that data is used as part of an election campaign. Read more on your right to be informed.

Os ydych chi'n eisiau gwybod mwy am sut ydy eich gwybodaeth yn cael ei ddefnyddio, dylai fod yn y hysbysiad preifatrwydd y plaid, fel arfer ar ei wefan.

Disgwyl i gael ei ddweud os mae plaid gwleidyddol yn defnyddio technegau proffilio

Political parties are entitled to receive a copy of the full electoral register, this contains information such as your name and address. Political parties build their understanding of different voters with direct conversations with members of the public, with publicly available data such as census data and by buying data from data broking companies (businesses which collect personal data from various sources like social media, then store, categorise and sell this data).

If a political party combines information about you from several different sources, this is known as proffilio. Political parties use this technique to learn more about voters and to send targeted marketing.

Os ydy plaid gwleidyddol yn defnyddio technegau proffilio, dylai bod yn clir yn eu hysbysiad preifatrwydd. Os mae gennych chi pryderon ynghylch technegau proffilio sy'n cael ei ddefnyddio, gallwch chi cysylltu y plaid.

Disgwyl gwybodaeth clir am hysbysebu cyfryngau cymdeithasol

Social media advertising is used by all parties to promote their work, but it’s important that it is clear to people if they are being targeted. Political parties should make it clear, either in their privacy notice or via the social media platform, that people’s personal information will be used to send them specific social media advertising.

Disgwyl i gael ei ddweud sut mae gwybodaeth o ddeiseb neu arolwg yn cael ei ddefnyddio

If a political party asks you to complete a survey or a petition, they should be clear how that data will be used in the future. In many cases, it will not be appropriate for a party or candidate who has collected information for a specific petition or survey to repurpose that information for political campaigning.

Os ydych chi'n pryderu ynghylch sut mae'ch gwybodaeth yn cael ei ddefnyddio, gallwch defnyddio eich hawl i wrthwynebu.

Disgwyl i bleidiau gwleidyddol i ddilyn y gyfraith pan mae'n dod i farchnata uniongyrchol

Mae angen i bleidiau gwleidyddol i ddilyn rheolau marchnata uniongyrchol pan yn ymgyrchu. Byddwn yn gwneud hyn mewn nifer o ffurfoedd, gan gynnwys:

  • Post personally addressed to you: This method may be used to contact you unless you have asked the organisation not to write to you or not to send you marketing material by post. In addition, electoral law sets out when a political party, candidate or referendum campaigner has the right to send a single election or referendum mailing by Freepost. This specific right applies even if you have asked the organisation not to contact you.
  • Emails, texts and other messages to mobile phones or voicemails, or faxes: This method may be used to contact you where you have given consent to the organisation to do so for specific purposes.
  • Phone calls: This method may be used to contact you unless the organisation has grounds for believing you would not want it to contact you, such as if you have registered with the Telephone Preference Service (TPS).
  • Galwadau ffon awtomataidd: Mae'r dull hyn yn cael ei ddefnyddio i gysylltu chi lle yr ydych wedi rhoi caniatad sbesiffig i'r sefydliad i wneud hyn am bwrpasau sbesiffig.

Post that is unaddressed or addressed simply to ‘the occupier’ is not covered under these rules.

Os ydych yn meddwl bod plaid yn camddefnyddio eich data, gallwch chi gwneud cwyn i ni.

Expect former, new and returning MPs to handle your data appropriately

As well as the usual turnover of MPs, this General Election will see some changes to constituency boundaries, so that you may find you are now a resident of a different constituency.

Any MP who is stepping down, is not re-elected, or whose constituency boundary is changing, will be managing the transfer of constituents’ casework and data. Therefore, if you have an ongoing or recent case with your current MP, they may contact you to ask for your consent to share your data with your new MP.

You should be aware that if you do not grant this consent, the data or casework may be deleted.

Beth i ddisgwyl ar ddydd yr etholiad?

Disgwyl i angen dangos ID i bleidleisio

While voters in Northern Ireland have needed to show their Photo ID to vote since 2003, for the first time at a General Election that voters across the UK will now need to show a form of Photo ID. You only need to show your ID to polling station staff, and you can ask for it to be checked in private. If you don’t have accepted photo ID, you can apply for a free Voter Authority Certificate. For more information, visit the Electoral Commission website.

Beth i ddisgwyl o'r ICO?

Disgwyl i adnoddau cadw chi yn gwybodus

Rydyn ni wedi creu adnoddau er mwyn i bleidleiswyr adnabod eu hawliau gwybodaeth yn ystod yr ymgyrch etholiad cyffredinol.

Disgwyl ni i gydymffurfio gyda ein rhwymedigaethau o gyn yr etholiad

Like many other public organisations, we will be quieter than usual in order to comply with our pre-election obligations.

We will be making fewer public announcements and may postpone some announcements until after polling day. This is to ensure that we are completely impartial and that we do not distract from or have any influence over the wider campaign.

We will continue to perform our regulatory function in all other ways. You can still get in touch with us as usual. If you have a complaint during this time, you can still submit this us.

Mae gyda chi yr hawl i fod yn hyderus y mae pleidiau gwleidyddol yn defnyddio eich gwybodaeth personol yn man cywir. Os ydych yn anhapus gyda sut mae'ch data yn cael ei ddefnyddio, mae gyda ni arweiniad i helpu chi i godi cwyn.
