Data Protection

Welcome to the University of Limerick Data Protection page.

The University of Limerick needs to process personal data in order to deliver our services and to comply with legal requirements. We process personal data relating to current and prospective students and staff, members of the public, suppliers and other stakeholders. We may also process personal data in the course of our research activity. The University acknowledges its responsibility to safeguard the personal data with which it is entrusted. We take care to handle all personal data securely, to process it only for the purposes for which it was collected and to retain it only for the period of time for which it is required. Our commitment to compliance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation 2016 (‘GDPR’) and the Data Protection Acts 1988 – 2018 is set out in our Data Protection Policy available on the UL Policy Hub.
