Personal Data & Privacy Policies

How the Rhodes Trust processes personal data

May of 2018 saw the introduction of a new ‘General Data Protection Regulation’ in the EU, which has replaced the 1995 EU Data Protection Directive and imposes strict new rules on controlling and processing personally identifiable information. The Rhodes Trust privacy policies have been duly updated; Rhodes House staff have also worked to ensure that data processing methods abide by the new regulation – including the collection, storage, transfer and destruction of personal data.

The updated policies can be found below. We reserve the right to update the data protection policies at any time.
