From the 25th May 2018 Oxford Summer Courses – and our College partners – will be compliant with a new UK Data Protection Bill based on the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (EU) 2016/679.
It is the new data protection legislation replacing the Data Protection Act 1998 and is a European Union regulation which aims to give people more control over how their personal data is collected, used, stored and shared. It is designed to strengthen and unify the data security measures of businesses in the European Union.
We ask you for information about you to help us process your application and to make sure that we can cater for your requirements. We pass on relevant data such as dietary requirements, names and ages to our College partners to ensure that we can fulfil our obligations to you.
We will abide by UK and EU law when data is required by authorities, although this will be on a case by case basis. For our compliance, you must confirm to us that you give consent for us to use your data in this way so that you can attend our courses. We will not hold personal information about you beyond December of the year you attend the course. You can confirm to us that you are happy for us to use your contact details in the future to tell you about our products. You can also tell us not to use this information in which case we will delete your contact details.
