General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
Information about the University's work to implement new data protection legislation.
Data protection legislation gives rights to people about whom we hold information, and gives us responsibilities regarding that information. Data protection legislation changed on 25 May 2018 when the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force replacing the existing Data Protection Act 1998.
The University is currently in the process of implementing the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation. More information will be published on this website in due course.
You can find information about the changes from the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO). The ICO is the UK regulator who oversees compliance with data protection legislation.
