Digital Glossary – GDPR
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a European Regulation which formed a new framework for regulating personal data in the UK from 25th May 2018. This replaces the Data Protection Act 1998.
All data controllers and organisations collecting or in any way “processing” personal data must now comply with this Regulation.
All UK Universities work within this Regulation, and this applies to anyone collecting and storing personal data, including students. Check your institution website for more details, and in particular the Student Privacy Notice which outlines the legal basis for processing personal student data.
