Freedom of information

Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FoI), The University of Northampton has a statutory requirement to adopt and maintain a Publication Scheme

Our Publication Scheme aims to provide clear, easily accessible information about the University for everyone. As well as listing information that the University already makes publicly available, it may also list information that is intended for future publication.

The University’s Publication Scheme is available electronically from our website at no charge. A paper copy of the most current version is available on request from the Records Manager.

Information that is not available on our website can, where indicated, be requested and paper copies will be provided. A charge will be made for providing these copies. In other instances you will need to make an appointment to view the documents at one of the University offices.

The material listed in our Publication Scheme is copyright of The University of Northampton unless otherwise stated. The supply of information under Freedom of Information legislation does not give the person or organisation who receives it any automatic rights to re-use what they have received. Any re-use of the data provided, including free distribution, or commercial use or sale, is not permitted without the explicit consent of The University of Northampton.

Under the fair dealing provisions of the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988 (sections 29 and 30), copyright material may be re-used for the purposes of research for non-commercial purposes, private study, criticism, review and news reporting. See also Statutory Instruments 2003 No.2498: The Copyright and Related Rights Regulations 2003.

Data protection and confidentiality

Although a great deal of the information the University holds is of a general nature, there are many filing systems and classes of records that relate to individual people. The Data Protection Act requires that information about an individual is kept confidential, unless that person has given permission for it to be disclosed.
