The Home Office is the data controller for all data processed within the EU Settlement Scheme. This includes where organisations are contracted to act on behalf of the Home Office. No other organisations have access to the personal information of applicants to the EU Settlement Scheme.

The Home Office may share information with other organisations, but only where the information needs to be shared and there is an appropriate legal basis for doing so.
