What is a privacy notice?
A privacy notice is a statement that describes how St George’s University collects, uses, retains and discloses personal information. Personal information is any information that can be used to identify a living individual, directly or indirectly.
Please see the section ‘What personal information do we collect?’ for a description of the personal information we hold about you.
The law says that personal information should be processed fairly:
- Information is used in a way that people would reasonably expect; and
- People know how their information will be used by us.
This means we are required to inform you of the following:
- Why we need your data
- How it will be used
- With whom it will be shared; and
- Your rights to control how we use your information.
The UK’s data protection legislation covers the lawful processing of personal information. Please see the University’s Data Protection page for further details.
