Data Protection

Data Protection and GDPR

The Data Protection Act 2018 and the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) apply to all RNCM activities and processes involving personal data. Our approach to protecting data at the RNCM is:

  • Being open about how we use information
  • Not keeping it for any longer than necessary
  • Making sure it is accurate and safe
  • Knowing what we have and what we can do with it
  • Identifying data breaches and knowing what to do.

Please see also our statement on privacy.

Freedom of Information

The Freedom of Information Act (2000) provides a general right of access to information held by public bodies, including colleges and universities, subject to certain exemptions; this is promote openness and accountability.
