Your data and the online community

When you register as a member of the Alumni Online Community, you consent to your information being held on our secure web server and on the University's alumni database in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998. All security measures to protect your data and privacy are in place.

The only people who will see data on this system are staff of Nottingham Trent University, other alumni using the system (if you choose to make your information public), and agents contracted by the University for purposes directly related to the interests of the University and its alumni.

You can choose whether to make your data visible to other alumni using the Alumni Online Community. Data is private until you choose to share it. By completing the relevant check boxes to publish chosen data you are deemed to have consented to your chosen data being viewed by other alumni. You may change these options at any time.

By choosing to make your data visible you are deemed to have also consented that this data may be disclosed to users of the system in countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA). It is necessary to draw your attention to this as any information displayed on the Internet is regarded as having potential for disclosure outside the EEA and the Data Protection Act 1998 requires that you explicitly consent to such a disclosure.

To remove your details from the Alumni Online Community, send an email with the subject of "Remove me from Alumni Online" and with clear instructions in the text of your email. You will still be able to access the public areas of the alumni website. You may opt to remove yourself from Alumni Online and still receive correspondence from the University, or you can opt to break contact with the University entirely.

If necessary, the Development and Alumni Relations Office will contact you to clarify the conditions of your request. All requests will be dealt with within 28 days of receipt. You may register again in the future.

Please read the full Terms and Conditions for use of the Alumni Online Community.

If you have particular enquiries about Data Protection you are welcome to email the Development and Alumni Relations Office.
