Information will be held securely in the Coventry University Alumni database in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998. This data is used by academic, administrative and support departments to promote links between Coventry University, its former students and supporters.
These uses include: the mailing and emailing of news; promotion of relevant opportunities, benefits, services and events; friend-finding; enabling members to give back to the university and its past, present and future students through supporting recruitment, careers programmes and other volunteering initiatives, fundraising, research and by advocacy within the community. The data will not be disclosed to external organisations other than those acting in their capacity of an agent of the University, unless legally required by law enforcement agencies.
We will always keep records for historical and statistical purposes (and statistics will always be anonymous). However, if you do not wish for your contact details (address, telephone number, email address) to be used for these purposes, or if you prefer to restrict their uses to specific activities listed above, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or write to the Data Officer, Alumni Team, Portal House Floor 5, Coventry University, 163 New Union Street, Coventry CV1 2PL.
We have a duty of care to keep data up-to-date in accordance with the Data Protection Act of 1998, so we will contact you periodically if the details we have for you appear to be out-of-date.
Please be aware that we may need to alter our data protection policies in line with Governmental policy. You should periodically check this statement, and the University's statement, to make sure that you agree to the terms and conditions listed.
