We collect information about you when you visit our website for the first time, and when you interact with our pages. We also collect information when you voluntarily complete contact forms, provide feedback and submit queries.
Website usage information is collected using cookies.
We use your information collected from the website to personalise your repeat visits to our website, and to help us understand what works and what doesn't on our website. We'll use information you submit through our contact forms and other ways of giving feedback to help you with your specific issues.
Under the GDPR we must establish a legal basis for processing your personal data and let you know what this is. It is in the University's legitimate interest to process your personal data for the outline above. This processing shouldn't impact on you negatively and is necessary for our website to function correctly.
We use several different third-party services to process your data, which allow us to give you the best possible experience. If we do want to collect personally identifiable information through our website, we will be up front about this. We always make clear when we collect personal information and explain what we intend to do with it.
We can't take responsibility for the behaviour of sites linked to or from our website. You should consult their individual privacy policies for more information.

You can set your browser not to accept cookies and the above websites tell you how to remove cookies from your browser. However, in a few cases some of our website features may not function as a result.
Sometimes we'll embed content in our pages that we don't control or operate. This is common for social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter. When you interact with these elements, which are always marked clearly, you've not interacted with our website but instead the service embedded, and we can't guarantee what data is collected.
Our website search is powered by Google. Search queries and results are logged anonymously to help us improve our website and search functionality. No user-specific data is collected by either us or any third party.
Personally identifiable data that's used at a top level for the maintenance and upkeep of the website is held in your browser in the form of cookies, which you have control over. You may delete them at any time.
Data collected through contact forms, feedback and queries will be held for a variable amount of time depending on exactly what it's being used for, but it'll usually be in line with our retention policy. We'll always tell you at the point when this data is going to be collected if it's not.
