Written answers (Question to Education)

As a controller of personal data, my Department maintains a number of data sharing agreements with other Government Departments and other public bodies but has no data sharing agreements with non-public bodies.

As required by article 28 of the General Data Protection Regulation, my Department does include certain data processing requirements in contracts where its service providers are acting as processors for the Department.
