Student Privacy Notice [PDF]
The GDPR gives individuals a number of rights regarding their data. You can find out more in our Rights Guide below:
GDPR Rights guide - students [PDF]
Rights requests are, in most cases, free of charge and need to be responded to within 30 calendar days. A longer period and a fee may result if a request is particularly complex.
Requests should be made to the Data Protection Officer at email@example.com. We may ask you for additional information to help process your request.
There is an exemption in data protection law regarding the release of examination scripts, which do not have to be disclosed. Examiners’ comments are not covered by this exemption. Comments recorded by an examiner about the performance of a candidate in an examination may be personal data and therefore available to a student making a subject access request. This is the case whether the comments are on the examination script or on a separate marking sheet.
To submit a request for comments please check the following guide and return the required information to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
