Data Protection

The Data Protection Act 1998 governs the processing of personal data and we as individuals have the right to access personal information held about us by all organisations that hold personal information, such as government departments, banks, credit card companies, local councils, schools, hospitals, doctors, your past and present employers, internet and mail order companies. Please follow the links opposite for further information about the Data Protection Act.

HESA Notices

The Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) is the official agency for the collection, analysis and dissemination of quantitative information about higher education in the UK. Like other higher education institutions, Falmouth University has to routinely pass certain personal data on staff and current and former students to HESA and HESA's agents and contractors. We also contact recent graduates on HESA's behalf to conduct the Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) survey. These transfers of data are required by law and are also a condition of Falmouth University's funding. Please follow the links opposite for further information about the HESA Notices.

The Freedom of Information Act 2000 has been in force since January 2005 and is designed to help increase confidence in public authorities through a greater transparency and openness about procedures and decision-making.
