Your Rights

Data Protection Legislation provides individuals with a number of rights. 

Individuals have the right to seek access to the personal data the University holds and processes about them.

Individuals have the right to be informed about how the University will collect and use their personal data. We share this information through Privacy Notices.

This is also known as the "right to be forgotten".  This is not an absolute right and will only apply in certain circumstances.

The right of data portability allows individuals to obtain and reuse their personal data for their own purposes i.e. to copy/transfer personal data from one organisation to another safely and securely, in a usable format. 

Individuals have the right to have inaccurate and/or incomplete information rectified. 

Individuals also have the right to object to or request the restriction of processing.  Again this is not absolute right and will only apply in certain circumstances.

Individuals have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing including profiling, where such a decision would result in a legal or other significant impact on you.
