Data Protection

The General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) and the UK Data Protection Act governs how personal information should be processed by organisations. The College is the data controller, which means the College is responsible for compliance with GDPR and the Act.

Since 25 May 2018, the legislation in the UK is the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), coupled with the UK Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA 2018) that supplements the GDPR in specific ways. These two pieces of legislation replaced the Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA 1998). All of the legislation is based around the notions of principles, rights and accountability obligations. The legislation is regulated in the UK by the  Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) as well as the courts.

The College recognises that having controls around the collection, use, retention and destruction of Personal Data is important in order to comply with the College’s obligations under Data Protection Laws and in particular its obligations under Article 5 of GDPR.  See below the Colleges Data Protection Policy, your Individual Rights Regarding Personal Data, along with the procedure for Subject Access Request.
