9. Personal Data Must Not Be Kept For Longer Than Needed

9.1 Data Protection Laws require that the College does not keep Personal Data longer than is necessary for the purpose or purposes for which the College collected it.

9.2. The College has assessed the types of Personal Data that it holds and the purposes it uses it for and has set retention periods for the different types of Personal Data processed by the College, the reasons for those retention periods and how the College securely deletes Personal Data at the end of those periods.  These are set out in the Data Retention Policy.

9.3. If College Personnel feel that a particular item of Personal Data needs to be kept for more or less time than the retention period set out in the Data Retention Policy, for example because there is a requirement of law, or if College Personnel have any questions about this Policy or the College’s Personal Data retention practices, they should contact the Data Protection Officer for guidance.
