Your right to data portability

The right to data portability allows you to obtain and reuse your personal data for your own purposes across different services.

It allows you to:

  • Move data
  • Copy data
  • Transfer data.

It ensures this is done in a safe and secure way, without affecting its usability. The right will only apply to information you have provided and where it is held electronically.

This includes data such as:

  • Username
  • Email address
  • Website or search usage history
  • Traffic and location data.

You can make a data portability request when the College is processing your information:

  • By automated means and relies on your consent to use your personal data, or
  • Uses your data as part of a contract you have with us.

You can find further information on the Information Commissioner’s website:

If you would like to make a data portability request please complete our Individual rights form and email it back to us with a copy of your photo ID to dataprotection@rcog.org.uk
