Data Retention Policy

Information about data retention in Blackboard Learn at the University.

The University must comply with data protection legislation by regularly deleting personal data it no longer requires. In the Learn Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), this mainly relates to personal data held about users and user activity.  Course sites will also be deleted once they are no longer in use to reduce the amount of space we need,

We have developed a Data Retention Policy for the Learn VLE. It has been implemented but not activated yet - more communication will be done with Schools before it is switched on.
