Your Data Protection rights

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) gives you control over your personal data. This includes how the information is used, your right to access information, and the rights listed on this page.

If you wish to exercise any of your Data Protection rights, please contact us.

The right to access and to be informed

You have the right of access to copies of your data held by the University. You also have the right to know how we will use your data. This is available via a privacy notice. The privacy notice will inform you of the purpose for collection, the legal basis for collection, who we share your information with and how long we keep your information for.

The right to rectification

If you believe something is wrong with the data we hold, you can submit a request to correct the information.

There are certain circumstances when we can refuse a request.

The right to erasure

This is also known as 'the right to be forgotten'. You can withdraw your consent and ask the University to delete information held.

This is not an absolute right and it will only apply in certain circumstances.

The right to restrict processing

You can ask the University to restrict processing of your data whilst any ongoing issues are investigated.

This is not an absolute right and will only apply in certain circumstances.

The right to data portability

You can request the data we hold can be transferred to another organisation.

The right of portability only applies to information an individual has provided to the University.

The right to object

The GDPR gives you a right to object to the processing of their personal data.

This may depend on the purpose for processing and our lawful basis for processing.
