Information about you: how we use it and with whom we share it

The Data Education in Schools project team only uses the personal data you have provided in order to deliver and improve the opportunities and services we provide in a personalised manner, to ensure each individual receives relevant information. To do so, we are using Mailchimp as our mailing system. The information you provide will be used by the University to:

  • Keep you up to date with news and progress regarding the Data Education in Schools project.
  • Provide you with information on any services you have requested
  • Ensure we only communicate with you about events, opportunities, or services of interest to you

We will only use information about you because you have previously indicated your interest to be added to our newsletter mailing list, signed up to our mailing list at one of our events, because we received an email directly from you or the legal basis for our emails is legitimate interest (University of Edinburgh email address holders only).  You can opt out of the mailing list at any time by unsubscribing.

We do not use profiling or automated decision-making processes.  A human decision maker will always be involved before any decision is reached in relation to you.

The information you provide will be used to send you email newsletters, via MailChimp, about forthcoming events at the University.
