GDPR - Privacy Notices

University of Northumbria at Newcastle is a registered Data Controller (Registration Number: Z7674926)

The University processes personal data in line with our obligations under the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) and any data provided to the University will be treated with confidence and processed in accordance with the rights provided to individuals under GDPR.

One of our obligations is to be transparent and accountable to the individuals whose data we process and deliver against their “right to be informed”. This means that we are required to provide information to them via a Privacy Notice, which describes what data we collect about them, where we get it from, what we do with it an what a legal basis for doing it is. It also communicates how we will store their data and what rights they have in relation to our processing.

The University has produced several separate privacy notices outlining the extent of our processing activities for different individuals or their relationships with the University.

Privacy notices are made available to individuals either at the point of capture (where they are providing the data themselves) or, where data is received via a third party (such as LUCAS) the relevant notice will be sent out to them no later than within one moth of receipt of the data.  

For full transparency on the different processing undertaken by the University, we have published all of them here in one place. Please note that these are subject to annual review, and may be subject to change:
