Collection of Personal Data

We will only require you to provide us with the personal information appropriate for us to complete specific tasks. For example, when you book a course we require you to provide us with sufficient personal information so that we may process your request, so that we may contact you in the event of a problem, or to draw your attention to related goods or services. You may provide us with additional information at your own discretion.

We will use your information to provide and personalise our service. We will use your contact details to communicate with you.

Please note that there may be instances where it may be necessary for us to communicate with you, in any event, for administrative or operational reasons relating to our services.

Disclosures of your information

We will only disclose your information in the manner permitted by your registration or where required to do so by law. In particular, we will disclose information to other parts of the Futureversity network where you have applied for a course with that organisation.

About Cookies

Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your computer or mobile phone when you visit a website. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user's device. They cannot be used to identify you personally.

Cookies are used to improve services for you by, for example:

  • Recognising you when you return to our pages or, if you log in whilst you are on the site, to remember you until you close your web browser.
  • Measuring visitor traffic and analysing how visitors use our website to enable us to make improvements to the site.

Website tracking

Whenever you visit our website, our web server may automatically record your IP address and each page you visit. It may also record information including your route to this site and your operating system and web browser type.

This information is not linked to any personal information we hold about you.

Privacy of personal data

We aim to protect the security of your personal data at all times. We aim to accomplish this by using a combination of methods, including but not limited to:

  • Your personal information will only be displayed on the screen if you are within a session for which you have provided your password.
  • Whenever your personal information is exchanged between your web browser and our web server, we use highly effective methods of encryption - this is currently 1024 bit SSL (secure sockets layer) encryption. This makes it extremely difficult for someone to intercept and read the information being passed between your web browser and our web server.

Access Rights

You have the right to access the personal information that we hold about you. Requests should be made in writing via the contact details provided above.
