Under data protection legislation, we require a legal basis to be able to process your personal information for the purposes set out above.
In this case, the legal bases are:
- Legitimate interests – the OfS has a legitimate interest in processing your personal data to administer and consider your application.
- Consent – for special category data (e.g. ethnicity, gender, disability) should you choose to submit such information.
Withdrawal of consent
Consent must be a clear positive action that you have given your agreement to the use of your personal information, and consent can also be withdrawn at any point if you are no longer happy with the use of your personal information for a specific reason. If you wish to withdraw consent, please do so in writing to:
Data Protection Officer
Office for Students
Lime Kiln Close
Email address – [email protected]
Once consent is withdrawn, we will destroy all relevant personal information unless we are relying on a different legal basis to justify keeping your personal information. If that is the case, we will tell you in writing. However, withdrawing your consent does not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before you withdrew consent.
