Personal Data and Privacy

Your data

You can see how the University will use your data by looking at the full Development Office Privacy Statement at the following link: Development Office Privacy Statement. The University will use the User Content described above for its legitimate interests in promoting the University, its mission, values, and academic programmes.

How long will We keep your User Content for?

This can vary but, for example, profiles may stay up on our website for a few years so that students, alumni and others get to see the range of experiences our students, alumni and friends have. The University will make reasonable efforts to inform you about how we’re using your User Content, for example, letting alumni or members of the University community know that we’re posting a profile on one of our social media channels or in a publication.

What if I want the User Content to be updated or taken down?

You can contact us at any time via the alumni@london.ac.uk email address to request that you would no longer like your User Content to be used, or to update this content with new information (for example, to share that you have a new job).

The University will make reasonable efforts to achieve this (e.g. we may update or remove User Content on our website but not in previously printed publications). We will ensure that the User Content will no longer be shared by the University. The University will retain the ownership of that User Content and use it for as long as it is relevant.

Who will We share the information with?

The User Content is created to share on public facing websites and social media so your data will be shared on the University accounts for these platforms.

If you have additional questions or concerns relating to the use of Your User Content please email alumni@london.ac.uk

As we may alter these terms without advance notice by posting revised Terms, please review the terms each time you grant permission to feature your Content.

Thank you again for sharing your experiences with the University and our community.
