The Data Protection Act 1998 requires all organisations which handle personal information to comply with a number of important principles regarding privacy and disclosure.
The Data Protection Act 1998 states that anyone who processes personal information must comply with following eight principles, which make sure that personal information is:
- Fairly and lawfully processed
- Processed for limited purposes
- Adequate, relevant and not excessive
- Accurate and up to date
- Not kept for longer than is necessary
- Processed in line with your rights
- Not transferred to other countries without adequate protection.
The Act also allows people to find out what personal information is held about them by making a subject access request. This covers information held electronically and in some paper records, and includes credit reference details. Wembley English Academy will share required information pertaining to individual students, with its stake holders, the Student Loan Company (SLC), the Home Office, Immigration posts (port of entry for a student) in the UK as well as British Embassies overseas (where a student visa application is made). It must be noted that all these stake holders form a total system that govern a student and the education provider while remaining in the UK as a student. Further, certain information may be shared with other authorities who offer support services to students, e.g. Transport for London, Local Councils etc. Sharing such information is once again governed within the Data Protection Act 1998 for which these institutions have signed an agreement.
