Data Protection and Legal
East Coast College is aware of its responsibilities around the use and storage of personal data and recognises that having controls around the collection, use, retention and destruction of personal data is important in order to comply with the College’s obligations under Data Protection laws and in particular its obligations under Article 5 of GDPR.
The College has produced Privacy Notices which relate to the personal information for staff, students and visitors to the College.
If you have any questions about these notices or the ways in which we use your personal information, please contact our Data Protection Officer at St Peters Street Lowestoft, NR32 2NB or [email protected]
