UniTasterDays Ltd Privacy Statement

At UniTasterDays Ltd (www.UniTasterDays.com) we’re committed to protecting and respecting your privacy.

Overview

This policy explains when and why we collect personal information about people who visit our website, how we use it and the conditions under which we may disclose it to others.

We may change this policy from time to time, so please check this page occasionally to ensure that you’re happy with any changes. By using our website and websites using our event listings, you’re agreeing to be bound by this policy.

Any questions regarding this policy and our privacy practices should be sent by email to [email protected] or in writing to UniTasterDays Ltd, 15 Goldstone Drive, Bridgnoth, Shropshire, WV16 4NE.

UniTasterDays Ltd act as the data controller of the personal data you provide through our websites and their subpages.

You can browse our website without providing us with your personal data. If you wish to contact the organisations listed on our website, send an event request or receive our events-by-email newsletter then we will need your personal information.

Many organisations listing on our website include a web-link and you can also use this without the need to provide us with your personal information.

What information do we collect, what is it for and what do we do with it?

We collect information from you when you subscribe to our events-by-email newsletter, send an enquiry to a higher education institution or other education provider, use our event listings tool supplied to other websites, complete a survey, request a university event, register to add events and provide your feedback.

Unless stated otherwise, the legal basis for processing your data is your consent and this is something you can withdraw at any time (please refer to our contact details above or at the bottom of all our web pages).

Section 1: How is your data used

1.1: Sending an enquiry to an organisation advertising on our website

There is some information that you must provide when requesting more details on event opportunities listed on our website. We will need to pass on your name, contact details, school or institution name, job title or education status, your message and the event you are interested in.

All this information is used by the higher education institution to provide you with the best response to your enquiry.

The data submitted in your enquiry is sent by email to the higher education institution named. The provider should then respond to your enquiry directly and will be responsible for gaining your consent to store or process your data further after that.

Data is not stored by UniTasterDays (other than in UniTasterDays email records) when your enquiry is submitted. When you submit an email enquiry via our website it is subject to the same levels of security as any standard email message. This means that the email could be intercepted and read by a third party.

UniTasterDays do not have any control of how the data is stored by the higher education institution when this is sent, nor can we provide details of the privacy policy for each institution beforehand. When an event enquiry is sent, you will be asked to consent to the information included being sent to the institution managing the event and subsequently consent to the institution running the event contacting you in relation to this.

Please consider this prior to submitting an event enquiry. The enquiry cannot be successfully sent without this consent being granted.

You can choose to get access to your enquiry history we hold for you by writing to us at: [email protected]

1.2: Events by Email Newsletter Sign-ups

Newsletter data is held by UniTasterDays as the data controller to send updates of the latest relevant higher education events on a weekly basis, and bespoke event announcements from higher education institutions.

By providing this data, you will be asked to consent to UniTasterDays using this as outlined in this section.

The data includes personal data which will be supplied by you, to include your full name, current role and your event email preferences.

Your data is processed by UniTasterDays based on you having a legitimate interest in this information. The benefits of signing up, and the grounds for this legitimate interest are:

  • Never missing an event - We will email you with the latest higher education events added to UniTasterDays to match your preferences - as well as bespoke event announcements from higher education institutions during the year.
  • Receive a FREE Teachers’ Guide to University brochure - We will send you a link to receive a FREE Teachers’ Guide to University brochure.
  • Receive the UniTasterDays Monthly Newsletter - the latest university information, advice and guidance blogs which have been added to the UniTasterDays will be sent to you each month.

Additional notes:

  • Relevant information only - We will only email you about higher education events and with information to support the higher education IAG provided to students.
  • Information is intended for teaching staff only - students (aged 16 or over) and parents can join too, but will only receive emails relating to higher education events.
  • Unsubscribe at any time - If you do not want to receive our emails, you can simply click the unsubscribe link at the foot of any of our emails, they will always include an unsubscribe option.

Your data will not be sold or passed on to third parties unless we are legally required to do so.

You can choose to get access to the data we hold for you by writing to us at: [email protected]

1.3: Completing a survey

Occasionally we may give visitors to our website or those who have signed up to our events-by-email newsletter the chance to take part in relevant surveys if there is a reason that this would be in your legitimate interest.

Typically, a survey will ask for some brief demographic details and will then go on to ask about your opinions and intentions relating to education choices. If there is an incentive for completing the survey (such as the chance to win an online gift voucher), then you will also have the opportunity to supply an email address. All survey data will only be processed anonymously, and no contact details will not be passed on to any third party.

Where is it stored:

We use industry standard and widely trusted survey platforms. We currently use TypeForm. com. You can see Typeform’s privacy policy at https://admin.typeform.com/to/dwk6gt. Our account is password protected.

1.4: UniTasterDays Connect API (UniTasterDays Event listings on other websites)

Other approved websites may choose to use a UniTasterDays events feed for their own website.

This technology is provided by UniTasterDays and hosted by the website the event listings tool is used on. Any data collected will adhere to the information in this privacy policy in the same manner as the sending an enquiry to an organisation advertising on our websites section of this policy.

When an event enquiry is sent, you will be asked to consent to the information included being sent to the institution managing the event. You will be also asked to consent to the institution contacting you in relation to this. The enquiry cannot be successfully sent without this consent being granted.

1.5: Event Requests

Data from event requests is not stored by UniTasterDays (other than in email records).

Details of the event request are forwarded on to the universities requested by you when an event request is completed. UniTasterDays do not have any control of how the data is stored by the university when this is sent, nor can we provide details of the privacy policy for each institution. Please consider this prior to submitting an event request.

When an event request is sent, you will be asked to consent to the information included being sent to each institution you select and consent to the institution contacting you in relation to this. The event request cannot be successfully sent without this consent being granted.

1.6: Customer Details (Higher Education Institutions)

Customers login details are stored by UniTasterDays. We may use these to contact you occasionally relating to your events on the UniTasterDays site. This would only be where this would be in your legitimate interests, for example event updates or potential new event listing opportunities.

1.7: User Feedback

Any feedback that is submitted through the 'Feedback' area of our site becomes the property of UniTasterDays Ltd. We may use this feedback, such as success stories, for marketing purposes, or to contact you for further feedback on the site.

Section 2: Age Restrictions

Despite our core audience being teachers, careers staff and support staff in school, students are very welcome on the site and can register for the events-by-email service and send enquiries providing they are aged 16 or over.

Students will be asked to confirm this when enquiries are sent and they join the events-by-email service that they are aged 16 or above. Unfortunately users will not be able to use our services if you are under the age of 16.
