“Personal data” or “personal information” means any information relating to an identified, or identifiable individual, such as name, identification number, location data or online identifier. It could also include one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of the individual.

There are “special categories” of sensitive personal data that refer to data relating to racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership, physical or mental health conditions, sex life or sexual orientation, genetic data, and biometric data which require a higher level of protection.

All employees and data processors, who have access to and are associated with the processing of personal data, are legally obliged to respect the confidentiality of our students and all other users.

Access to data:

You can ask us if we are keeping any personal data about you and you may request to inspect/have a copy, subject to requirements of the GDPR, of information we hold. This is called a Subject Access Request. To make a Subject Access Request, you will need to apply in writing and provide adequate proof of identity e.g. a copy of your passport, birth certificate or driving licence.

At any time, you may request that we delete or correct your personal information.

We do not disclose personal data to any third parties or external organisations without your specific consent.
