UCCF website account holders

What information do we hold about you?

The following information is collected and held when creating an account on the UCCF website.

For everyone:

For current/prospective UK students:

For others, where applicable

You may also provide us with your Home and Term addresses after you sign up – these details will be stored along with the rest of your account data.

How will we use the information we hold?

We’ll hold your data to administrate your UCCF website account, and in relation to any activity you carry out while using the UCCF website as  a logged in user. When you are logged out, we do not associate your personal data with your website usage.

We will use your details to save asking you again for data you’ve already given us during the course of carrying out activity on the UCCF website. For example, we might need to use your email address for the purposes of administrating a conference, but we won’t ask for it again when you book.

We may use the information you provide, such as your course or CU involvement, to provide you with personalised content when logged in to the UCCF website.

We will add your details to our supporter database and may occasionally contact you by post or email about other aspects of our work. You can opt out of this contact at any time.

If you’re a UK student, we’ll send you regular emails about UCCF, our resources and our work across the country. You can opt out of these emails by managing your mailing preferences on the UCCF website. We’ll need to pass limited information to our partners to check your eligibility for discounts.

Non-logged in users are not associated with any personal data during normal viewing of the website. You may however choose to give us some information by completing an online form. The information we hold will be made clear by the nature of the form submitted.

How will we use the information we hold?

We will only use information that you voluntarily give us by completing an online form. The way that we use the information gathered will be made clear by the nature of the form you complete.

Unless you opt out, we may also add your details to our supporter database and occasionally contact you by post or email about other aspects of our work. You can opt out of this contact at any time.

Further information about using your data
