What information are you collecting?

This privacy policy sets out why the University of Leicester’s UK Student Recruitment and Outreach team collects your data and your learners’ data; how it collects it; and what it does with it once it has been collected. This policy relates specifically to information held by the UK Student Recruitment and Outreach team.

The information stored and processed by the UK Student Recruitment and Outreach team for booking a Campus Visit, talk, workshop or event by signing up to the teacher and adviser newsletter may include any of the following:

  • Identifying details (including your name/staff attending)

  • Communications sent to you by the UK Student Recruitment and Outreach team or received from you
  • Activities or events your learners have taken part in (including campus visits, open days, summer schools, teacher and adviser conferences etc.)

The UK Student Recruitment and Outreach team may also look to enter into a data sharing agreement with your school or college but this will be reflected in a separate document to this privacy notice.

Why are you collecting my data?

If you are bringing a group of learners from your school/college/institution to the University, you will be asked to complete a booking form. This information allows us to comply with our Safeguarding Policy to keep you and your learners safe as well as maintain our booking records.

If you are signing up to receive our Teacher and Adviser newsletter, this allows us to ensure the newsletter is sent to you.

If you are booking to attend an event as a Teacher and/or Adviser, this will allow us to process your booking and send you event information.

How will you use this data?

We use the information we collect from you to enable us to:

  • communicate key messages with you in relation to any booked events/activities so that you and the learners you bring to the University are safe in line with the University’s Safeguarding Policy;
  • communicate relevant news and messages within the newsletter that you have signed up to receive;
  • organise events/activities/programmes, including event/programme selection
  • monitor and research activities including (but not limited to) evaluation of the impact of events/activities;
  • produce statistics, including event application and participation numbers, and participant outcomes.

The UK Student Recruitment and Outreach team and third parties with whom we share data may publish anonymised or aggregated data based on personal information from event applicants and/or participants, including analysis and research utilising this data. No information that could identify you or your learners will be published.

What is the legal basis for processing the data?

The legal basis through which data will be processed is for the performance of a task in the public interest which is set out in the UK GDPR Article 6.1(e) and s8(c) of the Data Protection Act 2018.  

The legal basis through which special category data will be processed is the explicit consent of the individual which is set out in the UK GDPR Article 9.2(a) and where the data subject has given explicit consent to the processing for one or more specific purposes.

If you are sharing my data with others, who are you sharing it with?

The UK Student Recruitment and Outreach team may share your data with carefully selected third party service providers to run event bookings, or to contact you by email, but we will always make sure they commit to comply with the law when handling your personal data on our behalf.
