Privacy notice

Disability processes

  • This privacy notice explains how personal information relating to disclosed disabilities and the needs assessment process is processed and used by the university.
  • We will publish any changes we make to this notice on this page.
  • We have reviewed how and why we process personal data for compliance under the General Data Protection Regulation which has replaced the Data Protection Act, 1998.  As part of this review we have decided that it is not appropriate to ask you for consent to share details of the adjustments approved for you within your PLSP assessment. This is because the university has a responsibility to pass limited details of approved support measures onto relevant others, on a need-to-know basis, in order to provide efficient support services and fulfil our legal obligations under the Equality Act 2010.
  • For any queries or concerns about how your personal data is being processed you can contact the relevant Data Protection Officer at dataprotectionofficer@uhi.ac.uk
