Term Main definition
Data subjects must be aware of the fact that their personal data will be processed, including how the data will be collected, kept and used, to allow them to make an informed decision about whether they agree with such processing and to enable them to exercise their data protection rights. The GDPR outlines six bases for the lawful processing of personal data.
Legal Basis for Processing
The General Data Protection Regulation requires data controllers to demonstrate one of these six legal bases for processing: consent, necessity, contract requirement, legal obligation, protection of data subject, public interest, or legitimate interest of the controller. The controller is required to provide a privacy notice, specify in the privacy notice the legal basis for the processing personal data in each instance of processing, and when relying on the legitimate interest ground must describe the legitimate interests pursued.
Legitimate Interests of Controller
The lawful processing of a Data Subject's personal data, the fact that the processing is necessary for the purposes of legitimate interests pursued by the University, or by a third party or parties to whom the data are disclosed.
Location Data
Data indicating the geographical position of a device, including data relating to the latitude, longitude, or altitude of the device, the direction of travel of the user, or the time the location information was recorded.
