There are a variety of ways in which you can share information - these vary depending on the type of information you have and are set out in the Information Classification and Handling Procedure.
Remember if you plan to share personal information i.e. information which can identify a living person, you are required under the Data Protection Act 1998 and the University Data Protection Policy to ensure that the other party is able to appropriately safeguard the information.
These requirements are usually set out and agreed as part of a Data Sharing Agreement or similar clauses within a formal contract.
