Rights related to automated decision making (including profiling) 

Under the GDPR, individuals have the right not to be subject to a decision based purely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning him/ her or similarly significantly affects him/ her. This right does not apply if the automated decision making:

  1. is necessary for entering into or performing a contract between the data subject and controller (e.g. the use of automated decision making to assign student college accommodation);
  2. is authorised by Union or Member State Law applicable to the controller;  
  3. is based on the data subject’s explicit consent.

For any non-exempt automated decision making, the University will:

  • provide individuals with information about the processing;
  • introduce a simple process for individuals to request human intervention and/or challenge a decision;
  • regularly review the process and system to ensure it works as intended.
