Dear Y Alexander

 

I appreciate that in my last email I advised that there was a recording of
the lecture. Whilst this is the case, we are unable to provide the whole
recording (slides and audio file of the speaker to you).

 

When we reviewed the video, it was clear that while the speaker delivers
the lecture, they also share personal anecdotes, some of which due to the
nature of the slides, are considered to be personal information, which is
exempt under Section 38 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act –
Personal Information. Sharing this information with you would be an
intrusion into the rights and freedoms of the individuals, would be unfair
and therefore breach the first principle of the UK General Data Protection
Regulation (UK GDPR).

 

Please find attached the outstanding slides. These slides do date back to
2016 and are not currently shared with our students due to their age. We
are aware that LGBT Youth Scotland consider the slides their intellectual
property therefore if you plan to re-use the content, you may wish to
contact them for their permission.

 

I hope you find this information helpful.
