What information we collect about you
We collect information about you when you make complete a contact form and will continue to collect further relevant information. This may include specific personal information relating to your studies or interests.
The lawful basis that the information is collected as set out in Article 6 of the GDPR is (a) Consent: the individual has given clear consent for us to process their personal data for a specific purpose.
We will also keep notes of any changes you tell us about - e.g. change of address, contact information and course change or completion. If you wish to update any information given as part of the initial form completion, or any
ongoing data collection, you can contact us at email@example.com
How we use your information
We collect information about you to help shape the guidance that we can offer you as part of our wider services. Administrators and individuals involved in the delivery of the service will require access to the information.
Any information provided will not be shared outside of the University without prior consent.
If appropriate the University will put a Non-Disclosure Agreement in place. We use several suppliers who process personal information on our behalf. These include suppliers of software services. These act strictly on our instructions and must not use the
information for their own purposes.
In exceptional circumstances we may be asked to share your information with police or other investigators if it would prevent or detect crime or safeguard a person’s wellbeing. Each instance will be judged on its own merit and any sharing of information will be done within the law.
Information processed abroad
The information provided will not be sent abroad.
How long we keep your information
We will keep a record of the information provided for the project for the duration of your studies, with data being deleted three years after graduation. If graduation date is not provided, we will delete data automatically after five years.
If you access additional University services these may keep a record of your contact and will provide you with details of how long they keep your information.
Accessing your information and other rights

If any of the information we hold about you is incorrect or incomplete then please let us know. You have the right to have your information corrected so that we hold accurate records about you.
This is also known as the right to be forgotten. You can request that your personal information is erased if it is no longer necessary for the University to keep it, or you withdraw consent that you have previously provided, or you object and there is no overriding grounds to keep it or if it is unlawful to continue to keep it.
You can request that the use of your personal information is limited to storage only and that we use it for no other purpose. This applies where you contest the accuracy of the personal information we hold, or our use of the information is unlawful, or we no longer need the information except in relation to legal claims, or you object to the use of your data and we need to verify whether or not our purpose for keeping it overrides the grounds of your objection.
