Information on how we use your data.
Information about you
We gather your personal data via our online forms to allow us to:
- answer your enquiry
- send you a newsletter, if you have signed up for this
- registered your interest in one of our services
- continue to communicate with you about relevant and related matters to your original enquiry
We are holding this information about you because you have given us your consent to do so by sending an enquiry, registering your interest or subscribing to a newsletter. We will also contact you about matters related to your original enquiry if you have given your consent to this. You may opt out of this at any time.
How we use it and with whom we share it
We will hold the personal data you provided us for 6 months. If you have agreed to be contacted by us about related matters to your original enquiry, we will hold your personal data for as long as you subscribe to these updates.
You can unsubscribe from receiving communications from us at any time by using the unsubscribe button in any of the emails you have received from us, or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. We will then explain the consequences of doing so in any particular case, initiate proceedings for withdrawing consent and delete your personal data.
In addition to the primary purposes, we are also legally obliged to share certain data with other public bodies such as HMRC and will do so where the law requires this; we will also generally comply with requests for specific information from other regulatory and law enforcement bodies where this is necessary and proportionate.
Transfers outside the European Economic Area
The University will only transfer data to countries outside the EEA when satisfied that both the party which handles the data and the country it is processing it in provide adequate safeguards for personal privacy.
If you are unhappy with the way we have processed your personal data you have the right to complain to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), but we ask that you raise the issue with our Data Protection Officer first:
The University's Data Protection Officer can be contacted at: email@example.com
Collecting your data
In order to facilitate online bookings for our events, we use Eventbrite - a third party service which is not operated by the University of Edinburgh.
How we use your data
We will use your personal data to allow us to process your registration, communicate with you and obtain your feedback about the event.
We are processing the information about you for these purposes because by registering for the event or conference, you give your consent for us to do so. We will also contact you about future events you might be interested in if you have given your consent to this. You may opt out of this at any time.
We will not share information about you with any other third party.
We will hold the personal data you provided us for 1 week. If you have agreed to be contacted about future events, we will hold your personal data for as long as you subscribe to these updates.
We do not use profiling or automated decision-making processes.
