To remember marketing preferences
Third-party services that we embed on some of our webpages – such as Instagram feeds, Twitter feeds and YouTube videos – may set cookies to measure how you use their services and record what advertising you see during your use of their service. This will only happen if you opt-in to receiving ‘Social marketing preferences’ cookies.
What should you expect to happen with the information?
We are committed to respecting the information you trust us with and to making sure that we keep it safe. Our websites collect very little personal information and we use it in ways that are compatible with your individual rights and freedoms.
The use of your personal information in the ways described above is necessary for the legitimate interests of the University in operating and improving its websites, analysing their use and ensuring their security, or is carried out with your consent when you accept certain cookies.
Where we do need to collect any additional personal data not listed above via our website, you will be told at that time about the use we will make of that information. For example, you may need to complete an online form in order for us to send you newsletters or to book to attend a University event.
Our services are not designed for, or intentionally targeted at, children 13 years of age or younger. We do not intentionally collect or maintain data about anyone under the age of 13.
Transferring your information outside the European Economic Area (EEA)
We may need to transfer your personal information outside of the EEA in order to provide you with the services and products you require or as necessary for our legitimate interests. This will most likely occur when our third-party providers are based outside the EEA. Any such transfers are carried out with appropriate safeguards in place to ensure the confidentiality and security of your personal information.
