    The Legislation

    The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) legislation came into force on 25 May 2018. This notice is intended to meet the new transparency requirements of GDPR and to ensure that all service users of the University of Strathclyde Law Clinic understand how their data will be used.

    Once you apply to the Law Clinic for membership we will process the information on your application form and any other information you provide us with. We will seek your consent to process your personal data to decide whether you can be accepted as a student volunteer member of the Law Clinic.
    ‘Special category’ personal data relating to race, ethnic origin, politics, religion, trade union membership, genetics, biometrics (where used for ID purposes), health, sex life; or sexual orientation may also be processed, where it is appropriate and lawful for us to do so.

    Your personal data will be managed securely and held on University servers. Access will be restricted to only those staff, student advisors or authorised agents who require it and on a ‘need to know’ basis. The University will employ any technical and organisational measures necessary to ensure the security of your data. You can find more information about our Information Security policies on our website.

    • Complain to the UK Information Commissioner’s Office

    Under certain conditions you also have the right to ask us to:
    • Restrict the use of your data e.g. if you have raised issues about the accuracy or use of your personal data, until we have investigated and responded to your concerns;
    • Erase your information or tell us to stop using it to make decisions about you;
    • Comply with your wishes where you have previously agreed to us processing your data for a particular purpose and have withdrawn your consent to further processing;
