You have the following rights in relation to your personal data processed by us:
Right to be informed
The University will ensure you have sufficient information to ensure that you are happy about how and why we are handling your personal data, and that you know how to enforce your rights.
The University provides information in the form of privacy notices.
Right of access / right to data portability
You have a right to see all the information the University holds about you. Where data is held electronically in a structured form, such as in a database, you have a right to receive that data in a common electronic format that allows you to supply that data to a third party – this is called “data portability”.
To make a request for your own information please contact the Data Protection Officer (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Right of rectification
If we are holding data about you that is incorrect, you have the right to have it corrected. Please email any related request to the Data Protection Officer (email@example.com).
Right to erasure
You can ask that we delete your data and where this is appropriate we will take reasonable steps to do so. Please email any related request to the Data Protection Officer (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Right to restrict processing
If you think there is a problem with the accuracy of the data we hold about you, or we are using data about you unlawfully, you can request that any current processing is suspended until a resolution is agreed.
Please email any related request to the Data Protection Officer (email@example.com).
Right to object
You have a right to opt out of direct marketing.
You have a right to object to how we use your data if we do so on the basis of “legitimate interests” or “in the performance of a task in the public interest” or “exercise of official authority” (a privacy notice will clearly state to you if this is the case). Unless we can show a compelling case why our use of data is justified, we have to stop using your data in the way that you have objected to. Please email any related request to the Data Protection Officer (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Rights related to automated decision-making including profiling
We may use a computer program, system or neural network to make decisions about you (for example, everyone that is on a particular course gets sent a particular letter) or to profile you. You have the right to ask for a human being to intervene on your behalf or to check a decision.
