Welcome to Trinity's Data Protection website

Data Protection aims to protect individuals' right to privacy in regard to the processing of their personal data by those who control such data. The legislation governing this is the Data Protection Acts 1988 and 2003 which lay down rules about the safeguarding of the privacy of personal data, covering such areas as the obtaining, processing, keeping, use, disclosure, accuracy, appropriateness, retention and an individual's right to access and correct their personal data.

The legislation applies to personal data held in both manual and electronic format. The Data Protection legislation is the transposition into Irish law of the relevant European Union directives.


Further information and advice notes on specific aspects of data protection in relation to the College will be posted below from time to time:
