You may request details of personal information which we hold about you under the Data Protection Act 1998. A small fee will be payable. If you would like a copy of the information held on you please write to London Institute of Business and Technology, 71-75, Shelton Street, Covent Garden, London, WC2H 9JQ, ENGLAND.

At London Institute of Business and Technology, we recognise that the privacy and security of your data are of paramount importance to you, and rest assured that it is to us as well. In addition to complying with applicable EU and national data privacy and protection laws, we have furthered our commitment to the EU data protection regime by investing in hosting facilities within the EU. However, due to the nature of our global platform, personal data may be transmitted and processed within data facilities located outside of the EEA. London Institute of Business and Technology utilises the European Commission’s Standard Contractual Clauses (also known as “model clauses”) as a lawful method to transfer personal data outside the EEA. By incorporating these model clauses into our Data Processing Addendum (“DPA”), both data controllers (our EU-based customers) and data processors are contractually obligated to certain technical and organisational safeguards relating to the privacy and fundamental rights of data subjects (our EU-based customers’ end users). Although enforcement of the European Commission’s replacement law for the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC, the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), does not begin until May 25, 2018, London Institute of Business and Technology has already initiated internal procedures to ensure we are prepared to meet the enhanced privacy requirements of the GDPR.
