Privacy Policy

We have created this statement to demonstrate our firm commitment to your privacy. We do not collect personally identifying information about you when you visit our site, unless you choose to provide such information to us directly by completing either an online or postal update form or providing other written or verbal information. Providing such information is strictly voluntary. This policy is your guide to how we will handle information we learn about you. We will not share any of your personal data with any third party other than in line with our policy or at the data subject's request, unless we are required to do so by law.

Reading or Downloading

We collect and store only the following information about you: the name of the domain from which you access the Internet (for example, yahoo.co.uk, if you are connecting from a Yahoo! account, or uea.ac.uk if you are connecting from UEA's domain), the date and time you access our site, and the Internet address of the web site from which you linked to our site.

We use the information we collect to measure the number of visitors to the different sections of our site, and to help us make our site more useful to visitors.

Profile Updates, Donations and Event Registrations

When you provide us with updated or new personal data, the data will be held on a secure electronic database.

The data will not be disclosed to any external organisations other than those acting as agents for the University, for example mailing houses for the mailing of alumni publications, or volunteers acting on behalf of the University.

The University may contact you by post, telephone or email unless you request otherwise.

We will not disclose any of your personal data to any third party, other than in the above circumstances or as set out in the Data Protection Notice for Students for Students and/or where you have given us written permission to do so, unless we are required to do so by law.

The personal data that we hold will remain confidential and accessible only by those who have a legitimate need to know within the University.

The information we hold will be used for communication from the University and members of the University staff. Communication could cover all aspects of the University activities. It may also be used to provide data to other departments within the University and statutory Government bodies such as HESA.

Sending us an Email

You also may decide to send us personally identifying information, for example, in an electronic mail message containing a question or comment, or by filling out a web form that provides us this information. We use personally identifying information from email primarily to respond to your requests. We may forward your email to other employees who are better able to answer your questions. We may also use your email to contact you in the future about our programmes that may be of interest.

We will not obtain personally identifying information about you when you visit our site, unless you choose to provide such information to us. Providing such information is strictly voluntary. Except as might be required by law, we do not share any information we receive with any outside parties.

If you sign up for one of our email lists, we will only send you the kinds of information you have requested. We will not share your name or email address with any outside parties.

Opt-Out and Change Your Contact Information

You have the option to opt out of receiving any communications from us. You can prevent unwanted communication by sending an email to netcommunity@uea.ac.uk, and we will mark your record "do not contact". You may also choose to receive only specific communications or indicate a preferred method of communication by selecting options on the Publications form or by sending an email to the above address, or opt out of all email contact by checking the box on the Email Preferences form. Through the Update Your Profile form, you can update your contact information previously provided to us to ensure we have the most accurate and up-to-date contact details.
