You should regularly check the personal information you provided, such as your contact details in the student system and ensure that they are kept up to date.
Your expectations of us under this policy
We will ensure that the personal data held about you is processed in accordance with data protection law. It is shared internally where appropriate in order to meet the purposes detailed above. The law requires that any information held is accurate and has been processed fairly and lawfully. Where it is necessary to collect sensitive information about you – such as health – we will only share this information with colleagues who have a legitimate reason for the details. You also have the right to access any personal information we hold about you and correct it is necessary.
Subject to certain conditions, you have the following rights in relation to your personal data:
A right to access personal data held by us about you (please see section entitled “How can I access my personal information” below).
A right to require us to rectify any inaccurate personal data held by us about you.
A right to require us to erase personal data held by us about you. This right will only apply where, for example, we no longer need to use the personal data to achieve the purpose we collected it for; or where you withdraw your consent if we are using your personal data based on your consent; or where you object to the way we process your data (in line with 6 below).
A right to restrict our processing of personal data held by us about you. This right will only apply where, for example, you dispute the accuracy of the personal data held by us; or where you would have the right to require us to erase the personal data but would prefer that our processing is restricted instead; or where we no longer need to use the personal data to achieve the purpose we collected it for, but we require the data for the purposes of dealing with legal claims.
A right to receive personal data which you have provided to us in a structured, commonly used and machine readable format. You also have the right to require us to transfer this personal data to another organisation.
A right to object to our processing of personal data held by us about you.
A right to withdraw your consent where we are relying on it to use your personal data. Note that a withdrawal of consent will not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.
A right to ask us not to use information about you in a way that allows computers to make decisions about you and ask us to stop.
In certain circumstances, we may need to restrict your rights in order to safeguard the public interest (e.g. the prevention or detection of crime) and our interests (e.g. the maintenance of legal privilege).
Data protection law requires us to take reasonable steps to ensure that any personal data we process is accurate and up-to-date. Please help us to do this by advising us of any changes to your personal data.
Your right of access or change can be exercised at any time by contacting the Data Protection Officer.
If the Data Protection Officer is unable to adequately address any concerns you may have about the way in which the college uses your data, you have the right to lodge a formal complaint with the data protection regulator, the Information Commissioner’s Office. Full details may be accessed on the complaints section of the Information Commissioner’s Office website.
