GDPR & Deletion of SIMS Data

by | Sep 7, 2018 | GDPR and SIMS, SIS News |

We are pleased to inform you that as part of the SIMS Summer 2018 release it is now possible to bulk delete data items from SIMS in line with GDPR requirements and your school’s data retention policies.

One of the GDPR requirements of keeping personal data is that, it is only to be kept as long as there is a need for it, either for legal reasons or the school’s requirements. Once there is no need for the data it should be either anonymised or deleted.

Full details about this update and instruction on this process can be found in our GDPR help topic and news items
