Personal information

Your personal information includes your name, date of birth, address, SQA qualification entries and results.

Data Protection Act

The Data Protection Act 1998 sets out how organisations should use and protect personal information. Under the Act you have the right to ask if we process any personal information about you and receive a copy of it.

The Act refers to you as a 'Data Subject', and to the information SQA holds about you as 'personal data'. Your request is known as a 'subject access request'.
