Data protection

The purpose of the Data Protection Act 1998 is to protect the rights of individuals with respect to the processing of their personal data, and to ensure that organisations which process personal data do so in a fair and proper way.

Processing includes the collection, storage, retrieval, use, or disclosure of personal data.

The Information Commissioner is responsible for overseeing the Data Protection Act and for protecting your personal information. You can contact the Information Commissioner by telephone on 01625 545 745 or on the Information Commissioner website.

We are committed to following the principles of the Data Protection Act. If you wish to see any of your personal data that the University holds, you should fill out the request form (MS Word). However, if you require confirmation of your degree or other awards, you should email your request to the Awarding Team.

We collect and process personal data from a number of sources, for a number of uses.
