Data Protection - Introduction
The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR, and associated UK data protection legislation) sets out the legislative framework for managing personal data. This includes student records, staff files and personally identifiable research data.
GDPR sets out the standards for data management and provides a right of access by data subjects to the information that the university holds about them. The university's Data Protection Policy provides additional detail about how personal data is handled. Please see our policy page for related policies.
