Right to object

You have a right to object to the processing of your personal data

You have the right to object to:

  • processing based on legitimate interests or the performance of a task in the public interest/exercise of official authority;
  • direct marketing (not currently applicable for SLC); and
  • processing for research purposes.

There are specific requirements for each of these, and the guidance published by the Information Commissioner’s Office on the Right to Object provides clear information for these.

You can exercise your right to object by contacting the appropriate support team.  Contact information for customers is available on the Student Loans Company website https://www.slc.co.uk/students-and-customers/contact-information-for-customers.

The SLC Privacy Notice provides additional information on the processing of personal data.
