Many people are concerned about organisations storing personal, confidential details on computer. A student may want to know:
- What information the school stores about them?
- Who has access to this information, eg which members of staff?
- Whether the information is available to other schools or organisations?
- What security measures are in place to prevent unauthorised access to the information?
- Could the information stored be used against them in any way?
The section on the Data Protection Act gives more information on this topic.
