This privacy notice has been compiled to help you understand why we ask you for your personal information when you use one of our websites and how we will store and use this information. CampusWish is committed to protecting your privacy when you use our services.
Do you know what personal information is?
We may collect personal information about you. This can be anything that identifies and relates to a living person and can include information that when put together with other information can then identify the person. For example, this could be your name, contact details, email address and/or telephone number.â€¯
We may need to use some information about you to:
We reserve the right to transfer your data if CampusWish is sold, goes into a merger, liquidation or receivership or transfers all, or substantially all, of its assets to a new owner. This will only take place if the third party agrees to adhere to the terms of this privacy statement. We will let you know of any such transfer and you will be able to opt-out if you wish.
We only use what we need
We’ll only collect and use personal information if we need it to deliver a service or meet a requirement.â€¯
If we don’t need personal information we’ll either keep you anonymous if we already have it for something else or we won’t ask you for it. For example, in a survey we may not need your contact details we’ll only collect your survey responses.
If we use your personal information for research and analysis, we’ll always keep you anonymous or use a different name unless you’ve agreed that your personal information can be used for that research.
â€¯We don’t sell your personal information to anyone else.â€¯â€¯
The law gives you a number of rights to control what personal information is used by us and how it is used by us.â€¯
You can ask for access to the information we hold about you
We would normally expect to share what we record about you with you, whenever we assess your needs or provide you with services.â€¯
However, you also have the right to ask for all the information we have about you and the services you receive from us. When we receive a request from you in, we must give you access to everything we’ve recorded about you.â€¯
However, we can’t let you see any parts of your record which contain:
This applies to personal information that is in both paper and electronic records.
If you ask us for access to your information then we’ll ask you to provide evidence so that
We use a range of organisations to either store personal information or help deliver our services to you. Where we have these arrangements, there is always an agreement in in place to make sure that the organisation complies with data protection law.â€¯
Sometimes we have a legal duty to provide personal information to other organisations. This may be because we need to give that data to the courts.
We may also share your personal information when we feel there’s a good reason that’s more important than protecting your privacy. This doesn’t happen often, but we may share your information:
For all of these reasons the risk must be serious before we can override your right to privacy.â€¯
If we’re worried about your physical safety or feel we need to take action to protect you from being harmed in other ways, we’ll discuss this with you and, if possible, get your permission to tell others about your situation before doing so.â€¯
We may still share your information if we believe the risk to others is serious enough to do so.â€¯â€¯
There may also be rare occasions when the risk to others is so great that we need to share information straight away.â€¯ If this is the case, we’ll make sure that we record what information we share and our reasons for doing so. We’ll let you know what we’ve done and why if we think it is safe to do so.
We’ll do what we can to make sure we hold records about you (on paper and electronically) in a secure way, and we’ll only make them available to those who have a right to see them. Examples of our security include:â€¯
You can find more details of our Information Security expectations on our online policy.â€¯
From time to time we may make changes to this privacy statement. Any changes will be posted on this website so you are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it. If at any time we decide to use personal data in a manner significantly different from that stated in this privacy statement, or otherwise disclosed to you at the time it was collected, we will notify you by email, and you will have a choice as to whether or not we use your information in the new manner.
