Data Protection

The Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA) aims to protect the privacy of the individual in relation to the personal information organisations may hold about them.  

It establishes key principles that govern the collection, use and handling of personal information and provides individuals with important rights.  

The University administers its obligations under the DPA in accordance with its Data Protection Policy.  You may also find the short guidance document on "Providing and Receiving Personal Data" useful.

Note that, from the 25th May 2018 the Data Protection Act 1998 has been replaced by the Data Protection Act 2018, which was brought about through the EU's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).  Click here for further information.
