  2. You must use appropriate security measures to protect personal data
  3. You must not keep personal data for longer than is necessary
  4. Individuals have the right to see any personal information the University holds about them, and the University has 40 calendar days to respond
  5. For advice on data protection or if you have concerns about disclosing data, contact the Data Protection Officer
