17. Transferring Personal Data To A Country Outside The EEA
17.1. Data Protection Laws impose strict controls on Personal Data being transferred outside the EEA. Transfer includes sending Personal Data outside the EEA but also includes storage of Personal Data or access to it outside the EEA. It needs to be thought about whenever the College appoints a supplier outside the EEA or the College appoints a supplier with group companies outside the EEA which may give access to the Personal Data to staff outside the EEA.
17.2. So that the College can ensure it is compliant with Data Protection Laws College Personnel must not export Personal Data unless it has been approved by the Data Protection Officer.
17.3. College Personnel must not export any Personal Data outside the EEA without the approval of the Data Protection Officer.
