Students warned to protect their personal information 21 August 2007

The Office of the Data Protection Supervisor (ODPS) is urging new and returning university students to protect their personal information as the new academic year approaches. By safeguarding their personal information at a time when they are likely to be invited to sign up for new services and societies, students can lower their risk of falling victim to identity theft.

A free guide - “Your Information – Your Responsibility” – is available to help students protect and manage their personal information.

The guide includes advice and tips on how to access the information that organisations hold about you, how to correct inaccurate information and how to reduce unwanted marketing calls and texts. The free guide is available by calling 01624 693260 , by email or at http://www.gov.im/odps/notices.xml
