The Data Protection Act 1998 sets out the legislative framework for managing personal information. This includes student records, staff files and personally identifiable research data. The Act establishes mandatory standards for data management and provides a right of access by data subjects to all of the information that the College holds about them. You can find out more about the Act by visiting our Data Protection Guidance page. The College Data Protection (Personal Information Management) Policy can be found on Governance Zone.
How do I get access to my own personal data?
If you are a member of staff or a student then the College will hold some information about you on file. We need to process personal data in order to manage your College career. If you want access to your data then complete the personal information request form
To avoid delays in processing your request please be as clear and specific as possible when you are describing the information that you want. An administrative fee of £10 will be charged for handling your request, though the fee is waived for current members of staff. You will be required to produce proof of your identity and please notethat retrieval of your data may take up to 40 calendar days.
Exam Scripts are available directly from your faculty. Please see the feedback guidance for more information.
Can I get access to personal data that isn't my own?
The Data Protection Act exists to protect the privacy of individuals so you have no right of access to the personal data of anyone other than yourself. There are rare exceptions to this rule where health and safety or legal matters are involved. Contact us
for further assistance.
