Data Protection

Right to rectification

If personal data is inaccurate, out of date, or incomplete, individuals have the right to correction, update or completion of that data.

Data subjects are entitled to request that their personal data are rectified if the data are inaccurate or incomplete. If you receive such a request, you must comply within one month. Should complying with the request for rectification be particularly complex, then the time can be extended to two months.

Note: The right to rectification only applies to objective data, not subjective opinions. 

If you have shared the personal data with third parties, or within the University, you must contact each recipient and inform them of the rectification - unless this proves impossible or involves disproportionate effort.
