Privacy Policy

Our website and your privacy

The University is committed to your privacy. As a result we have created this policy to explain how we gather and use information collected from this website.

We may use your IP address for website administration purposes and to help diagnose problems with our server. We use IP addresses to identify visitors and to gather broad demographic information.

We may use cookies to deliver content which is specific to your interests, to save your password so that you do not have to re-enter it each time you visit, and for other purposes. By using this website you are deemed to have consented to the use of cookies.

This site may include registration forms that may require you to give us contact information (such as name and email address), unique identifiers (such as a student ID number), financial information (such as your account or credit card numbers), and demographic information (such as postcode/zipcode, age or income level). Information from the registration form is used to contact the visitor when necessary, and to send the visitor information about the University and its programmes. It is possible for a visitor to opt out of future mailings by writing to the University. We use financial information to bill the user for products and services and to check the user’s qualifications for registration. Unique identifiers are collected in order to verify the identity of the user, to use as account numbers for our record system, and for other purposes.

Our website also collects demographic and profile data. We may use this data to show you content that we believe may interest you, and to tailor your experience whilst visiting our site.

All the above actions may be undertaken by the University or by any hosting provider whether acting on its behalf or otherwise. Hosting providers may also have their own privacy policies and may collect data in addition to the above that will be governed by the hosting provider’s own privacy policy and not by the University.
