General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect on May 25th 2018 and replaces the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC. From this date, GDPR, in conjunction with specific Irish law, will give more rights to the individual and will place more obligations on South East Technological University, in terms of accountability and transparency, when using and storing personal data.
In undertaking the business of SETU, staff create, gather, store and process large amounts of data on a variety of data subjects including students (potential, current and former), staff, third parties and members of the public. Our use of personal data ranges from CCTV footage, financial transactions with commercial customers through to the processing a student’s details throughout their journey, from application through to graduation.
