Who will your personal data be shared with?
Within the University, your data is shared with only those University staff who need access for the processing purposes set out above.
Your personal data is shared as is necessary, on a considered and confidential basis, with several external organisations which assist the University with handling enquiries and student applications and with sending you information about studying here. These organisations act on our behalf in accordance with our instructions and do not process your data for any purpose over and above what we have asked them to do.
We make sure we have appropriate contracts in place with them. This includes
We may also share your personal information with third parties (including your school/college, partner(s) with whom we may have collaborated to organise and/or evaluate events, the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS), the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA), the Department for Education, the Higher Education Access Tracker (HEAT), any third parties managing HEAT’s database, and HEAT service subscribers and approved researchers) for the same purposes as listed above, and also for storage. Please note that only certain events/initiatives involve sharing your personal information with HEAT and related parties.
- Mailing houses
- External research agencies
- External media agencies to send you targeted messaging via social media. If you do not wish to receive these, you can amend your settings or preferences on the relevant social media platform.
Sometimes your personal data is processed by these organisations outside the European Economic Area (e.g. because they use a cloud-based system with servers based outside the EEA), and if so, appropriate safeguards are in place to ensure the confidentiality and security of your personal data.
We do not share your data with external organisations for marketing their products or services. We do not sell your personal data to third parties under any circumstances, or permit third parties to sell on the data we have shared with them.
