Data Protection Principles

The GDPR sets out six key principles. To ensure compliance the University must act in accordance with these principles. In brief, these are: 

  • Lawfulness, fairness and transparency
  • Purpose limitation
  • Data minimisation
  • Accuracy
  • Storage information
  • Integrity and confidentiality (security)

In addition, the University must be able to demonstrate its compliance with the principles.  This is referred to as the accountability principle.
