Data Protection Policy (9 May 2018)


All visitors to the College are made aware that CCTV is in use on the College site(s). For further details see our CCTV Policy (9 May 2018)


How we use your information​ 

The following Data Protection Statements, to be uploaded shortly, tell you what to expect when the College collects personal data. You may need to refer to more than one statement (e.g. a student will also be a Library user, a website user and probably a member of a club or society). 

It applies to information we collect about:

  • website users, who also should see the cookies policy;
  • visitors to the College;
  • pre-applicants (undergraduates and graduates);
  • applicants;
  • students;
  • alumni and supporters;
  • job applicants;
  • employees and workers;
  • Senior members;
  • Library users;
  • conference organisers (and other commercial contracts).

The current Data Retention Schedule is under revision. An updated version will be uploaded by 25 May 2018.
