How to Access your Personal Data

Making a Subject Access Request

Under data protection legislation an individual has the right to access the information that an organisation holds about them. Accessing personal data in this way is known as making a subject access request.  (Subject access requests are different to requests submitted under FOI legislation, which relate to information about the organisation itself.)
You are entitled:

  • to be informed whether your personal data is being processed
  • to be sent a copy of your personal data subject to any applicable exemptions and the removal of other people's personal data as appropriate

Your subject access request to the University may be submitted in whatever format you wish, but we have created a standard Subject Access Request Form for your convenience.  Using the form will help us to verify your identity and give a timely and accurate response to your request. For a word copy of our Subject Access Request Form, please click here.

When we receive your request, we will let you know the statutory deadline by which we will reply. If, on receipt of our response, you consider that the University has not dealt correctly with your request, please refer to our Data Protection Complaints Procedure.

Exercising other data protection rights

Under data protection legislation an individual has various other rights - please see our Corporate Privacy Policy for more information. These rights requests may be submitted in whatever format you wish, but we recommend that you email the Records Management Team to help us give a timely response to your request.
