How we get the information and why do we have it

We collect data through our electronic systems and store it in our Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system and other relevant University systems.

We will receive the data directly from you either through your enquiries to us (e.g. when you contact us to ask for information or a specific service).

We also collect data through our website.  Solent University's website does not capture nor store personal data except where you voluntarily choose to provide your personal details (for example through one of our forms).

(c) We have a legitimate interest and the processing carries no or little risk.

What we do with the information

We collect basic personal data to keep in touch with you and to provide services that you have requested or are in your interest. We do not share the data with any third parties. Any information processed will be deleted once it is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected.
