Data Protection

Data Protection

EncryptionUK GDPR and the Data Protection Act (2018) set out the legislative framework for managing personal information. This includes student records, staff files and personally identifiable research data. Together, UK data protection legislation 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.

The College Data Protection (Personal Information Management) Policy can be found on Governance Zone.

How do I get access to my own personal data?

Can I get access to personal data that isn't my own?

No, UK GDPR (and associated UK data protection legislation) exists to protect the privacy of individuals and you have no right of access to the personal data of anyone other than yourself.
