How we manage, use and store your data.
As alumni or friends of Swansea University, we will use your details to contact you by post, email, phone, text and/or social media, complying with any preferences you have expressed*. We contact you to keep you informed of the developments and advances being made by Swansea University, its students and staff, and its alumni.
We will also offer opportunities for you to engage with the University as an ambassador, friend and supporter. This may include fundraising, when we may ask you to support the University’s mission of creating and sharing knowledge, and educating, for the benefit of all.
Your data is held securely and in adherence to the Data Protection Act. Your data will not be disclosed to any external organisations except for those acting as agents for the University under strict confidentiality agreements. Data is never “sold” to other charities or companies.
The information Swansea University retains is name, address and other contact details (if known), and information about your Swansea University (or predecessor institution) degree course(s). We may also retain data about donations made, business details, social media addresses, telephone and email contacts, and/or other specific information that you have supplied to us via such methods as survey responses etc.
In order to maintain data integrity, we may also source and retain information which is available from trustworthy public sources. Fundraising to support the University is an important element of our charitable work, so we may undertake appraisals to consider individuals’ potential to make donations.
Swansea University’s Development and Alumni Relations team are happy to answer any questions that you may have about how your data is stewarded.
