Alumni data and privacy

Any information you choose to give us will be held securely and confidentially on the University's database of alumni and friends in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998. A data privacy statement for non-alumni subscribers of van Geest Voice (the newsletter of the John van Geest Cancer Research Centre) is also available here.

As a former Nottingham Trent student we value your feedback and experience. Updating the Alumni Community with your personal contact and career information helps to build a strong alumni network. Your input helps to ensure that our courses and programmes remain relevant for NTU students. Your personal achievements are also important to the University.

Data Protection statement

Data is used to promote close links between Nottingham Trent University and its former students, including analysis of employment data to inform University courses and services, communication of relevant news, benefits, services and career-related information, and the promotion of ways in which alumni can support the University and its students – past, present and future.

Data may be made available to our academic, administrative and support departments, alumni groups and societies (including overseas). Data will not be disclosed to external organisations other than agents acting for the University on alumni related projects, e.g. mailing houses for the mailing of alumni publications.

The University may also provide information to external surveying companies working on behalf of government agencies or funding bodies (including, without limitation, the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) who may contact you directly from time to time as part of their Destination of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) longitudinal survey). Any information will be treated confidentially. See the section "Your Data and HESA" for detailed information.

If you give a mailing address, email, fax and/or telephone number(s), you authorise Nottingham Trent University, and agents acting for the University, to contact you using any of these methods. You may opt out of specific or all communications at any time.

If you do not wish your data to be used for any of the stated purposes, please email or write to:

The Alumni Relations Manager
Nottingham Trent University
50 Shakespeare Street

If you have particular enquiries about Data Protection you are welcome to email the Development and Alumni Relations Office. Information is also available at the Information Commissioner's Office.
