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 will change on the 25th May 2018 when the General Data Protection (GDPR) comes into force replacing the existing Data Protection Act 1998.

The University is currently in the process of implementing the requirement of the GDPR, and have used the Information Commissioners Office 12 – steps to take now. More information will be published on this website in due course.

Further information on GDPR can be found at the Information Commissioners GDPR pages.
