Data Protection Code of Practice
Edinburgh Napier University's Data Protection Code of Practice concentrates on key issues of concern to the University, reflects our agreed policies and procedures, provides links to these where appropriate and to other resources which have been developed.
The University's Code was based on a JISC Model Code and has been revised by members of the University's Information Governance Group and other key staff to include:
• New legislation and developments in case law
• Codes and other guidance issued by the UK Information Commissioner (ICO)
• Updated University guidance documents on the application of the Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA) and other resources
In addition to JISC and the contributors to the model Code, Edinburgh Napier University gratefully acknowledged other material originally incorporated from guidance published by the University of Edinburgh, University of Brighton and the University of Essex.
