We are committed to protecting your privacy and
respecting the confidentiality of information which you provide when you
visit our website at http://www.nottingham.ac.uk/. At the same time, we
want to try to ensure that you obtain full value from our website and
from the services which you may want to receive via our website.
We are registered as a data controller under the Data Protection Act 1998 (the "1998 Act"). The Data Protection Register
is open to view. We uphold the relevant data protection principles and
process all personally identifiable information about you ("personal
data") in accordance with the 1998 Act and other relevant legislation.

It is possible to use our website without
providing any personal data. However, we may automatically collect
certain information about you when you use our website, including by our
use of "cookies" (see below), such as the IP address of your computer
and the dates and times of your visits.
In some areas of our website we may ask you for
personal data, such as your name, address and e-mail details, that will
enable us to make your site visit a more rewarding experience for you
and/or to contact you after your visit. Examples of this might be where
you complete an online form asking for a copy of a prospectus or to book
a place on an open day with us, where you ask for information about a
job vacancy, or where you subscribe to an online newsletter.
In some other areas of our website, where you
can register as an online user, we may ask you for more detailed
information about yourself. An example of this is Nottingham Alumni
Online, which, amongst its various other services, enables former
students to make contact with each other. In order to provide these
types of services, it may be necessary for us to collect and process
additional personal data, such as information about your educational
Personal data which we collect about you via our
website is held on and processed by computers situated at The
University of Nottingham. We will retain this data for a reasonable
period or for as long as the law requires.
We will not disclose any of your personal data
collected via our website to any third party, other than in
us permission to do so, unless we are required to do so by law.
We may use personal data collected from you via
our website to manage and monitor use of our website. Otherwise, we will
only use this personal data for the purposes for which it was
collected, unless you have given us permission to use it for other
stated purposes. For example, if you supply us with your name and
address so we can send you a prospectus for a particular department, and
at the same time you agree that we may send you similar information in
the future, we may subsequently invite you to an open day at that
There may be circumstances in which we will ask
you to agree to us disclosing your personal data to certain third
parties, or transferring it outside the United Kingdom. However, we will
not do this without your permission. For example, if you use Nottingham
Alumni Online, we may ask you to agree to us transferring your personal
data to countries outside the United Kingdom, including those which do
not have equivalent data protection legislation to the 1998 Act. This is
because some alumni are likely to be located outside the United
Kingdom, and the global nature of the Internet is such that making
personal data available to others on our website is likely to involve
the transfer of this personal data to other countries. However, before
transferring your personal data in these circumstances, we will do our
best to ensure that appropriate arrangements are in place to protect
If at any time you want to withdraw any
permission you have given us to provide you with services, or to use
your personal data in any other way, please inform us by e-mail.

example, you complete an online form.
