Data privacy

Making personal data safer - GDPR.

The University of Oxford handles a large amount of personal data, and we take data privacy very seriously.

We work continuously to ensure our policies and processes are up-to-date.

The introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in May 2018 has provided the University with an opportunity to further strengthen the way we protect people’s data and ensure that privacy is central to what we do.

A University-wide improvement programme has been underway since 2017, led by our Information Compliance Team with representatives from across the institution.

Staff and colleagues looking to find out more should visit our GDPR data privacy webpages.

More information about the University’s approach to data protection can be found in the Policy on Data Protection.
