Data protection and privacy



Your personal information is important

We’re here to make sure that, as members of the Students’ Union, you can fulfil your potential, meet your aspirations and have an incredible time at University. You’re at the heart of the Union and this includes making sure your personal information is safe when we use it. We also employ staff and engage volunteers, work with suppliers and have customers for our commercial services, so the information on this page is for those people too. The way we manage and process your personal information is governed by the Data Protection Act 2018, which is the UK's implementation of the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR). Here we aim to explain how we manage your information in line with our responsibilities and what this means for you.
