Request for rectification of personal data


 Under Article 16 Of the GDPR, EU Citizens have the right to have inaccurate personal data rectified by Data Controllers (in this case the University). This also includes the right to have incomplete personal data completed where relevant. Students and Staff Members have the ability to update their own personal data by using the portals provided by the University:

  • Students can use: https://evision.napier.ac.uk/si/sits.urd/run/siw_lgn 
  • Staff can use: https://hrconnect.napier.ac.uk/mthrprod_ess/ess/#/​ when logged in to the University network

If you are unable to make the updates yourself then please submit the form below to dataprotection@napier.ac.uk

Request for the erasure of personal data ("Right to be Forgotten")

 

Under Article 17 of the GDPR EU citizens have the right to request the erasure of their personal data. This is also known as the ‘right to be forgotten’. The right is not absolute and only applies in certain circumstances. The Information Commissioner’s (ICO) guidance refers: https://ico.org.uk/for-organisations/guide-to-data-protection/guide-to-the-general-data-protection-regulation-gdpr/individual-rights/right-to-erasure/

We ask you to complete the form below to enable us to find the relevant information in order to make a decision about erasure.

Students/Graduates/Previous Students:

In relation to processing done by the University, this right does not apply as student personal data is processed under GDPR Article 6(1)(e): “processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller”, which is the Statutory Instrument 1993 Number 557 (S.76). GDPR Article 17(3)(b) refers.

If the course you studied is regulated there will also requirements under other legislation (e.g. health legislation for student nurses and midwives) for the University to keep certain records relating to students. We are also required to keep records to verify qualifications e.g. for crime and fraud purposes.

Therefore, whilst it is not possible to delete your personal data from the University’s records we can remove you from contact lists .g. the Alumni database, to stop youreceiving communications from the University.

For more information please see the University’s Privacy Notice/s (appropriate to yourself) – they detail the purposes, legal bases, etc. for processing.

Employees:

The University processes your personal data under GDPR Article 6(1)(b): “processing is necessary for the performance of a contract”, etc. which refers to your employment contract. There is also no automatic right under the legislation to have your personal data deleted where this is the legal basis for processing, as the University is required to keep certain records as evidence of your employment.

Requests for deletion will be considered on a case by case basis, dependent on the circumstances, but ‘core’ information is required to be kept permanently, although there may be other information which can be deleted, if requested.

For more information please see the University’s Privacy Notice/s (appropriate to yourself) – they detail the purposes, legal bases, etc. for processing.

Communications:

Please note that where you ask us not to contact you we are required to keep a record of this to ensure that we adhere to your wishes and you are not re-added to our databases by another means and contacted again.
