Data Protection

Changes in the Data Protection Law

We are very proud of the strength of the Newnham Network and Community which reaches out to our alumnae and friends around the world. Many a principal has said in her graduation speech that ‘Once a Newnhamite you are always a Newnhamite’.  When our students sign the Register of the Roll they become members of the special Newnham family and we hope they will maintain a lifelong relationship with the College.

To enable us to keep our connection with you we hold your personal data. We have always handled your data with care, discretion, respect and treated it very sensitively and will continue to do so.

Since 2018 data protection law in the UK has been governed by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which created a set of data protection rules for the EU as a whole. As of the 1st January 2021, the GDPR ceased to have effect in the UK, however we now have a UK GDPR and the UK Data Protection Act (2018) which govern data protection within the UK. Our data protection statements are based on those recommended by the University’s data protection experts to all the Cambridge Colleges and should provide all the information you need to understand how your personal data is managed. Please do not hesitate to contact the Roll and Development Office if you have any questions which we would be happy to answer.
