Information about Graduway

Current Leicester Connect Alumni Users (platform previously provided by VineUp)

Graduway is a data controller and data processor and will share your information with the University of Leicester. Graduway, which has acquired our previous platform provider VineUp, will use the personal information already entered by you as a Leicester Connect user, including your name and email, to verify your account and register you for the new platform. This will enable you to re-register on the new platform and allow you to access the site to continue networking online through Leicester Connect and allow the University to communicate with you concerning Leicester Connect and other services connected to the Professional Mentoring Programme. Your personal data will be used to communicate with you concerning University news, events, products, services and fundraising.

New Leicester Connect Alumni Users

If you are joining Leicester Connect for the first time the University of Leicester, as a data controller, will provide information such as your name and Alumni ID number to Graduway, a third party data processor. This will enable you to register on the new platform and allow you to access the site to start networking online through Leicester Connect and allow the University to communicate with you concerning Leicester Connect and other services connected to the Professional Mentoring Programme. Your personal data will be used to communicate with you concerning University news, events, products, services and fundraising.

When setting up your Leicester Connect account, you will be able to link to your LinkedIn, Facebook or Gmail accounts to pull through your personal information, or you can enter your information manually. Graduway will share this information with the University for the purposes mentioned above.

Graduway may also use this information for different purposes to those established by the University, in which case they will  become the data controller for any personal information or content that you then add into the platform.
