By applying for the Centre for Lifelong Learning’s courses, offered on behalf of the University of York, you agree to the terms of our privacy statement outlined below.

In order to apply for our courses, we will ask you to complete an application form to collect your personal details. This information will include your name, postal address, email address, telephone number and date of birth. We will also ask you to disclose any relevant disabilities or health conditions so that we can take reasonable steps to provide appropriate support and services to you. In addition, for accredited modules, we will also ask you for your gender, nationality, ethnicity and highest previous qualification. Information provided on the application form will be processed to allow us to enter into a contract with you to deliver your study. Disability and health condition data will be used with your consent only.

In addition, the Centre has a legitimate interest to monitor the effectiveness of its programme and may process your data for widening participation purposes. You will not be identified in any research outputs.

Your information will be held by the Centre for Lifelong Learning, stored in the UK and kept secure and in accordance with data protection legislation. It will be retained and disposed of in line with the University’s data retention policy.

With your consent, we will also use your contact details to keep you informed about future courses and events as a part of marketing activities. You can withdraw your consent to receive marketing from the Centre at any point by contacting the Centre.

While the Centre may collect your information using outside organisations such as Eventbrite, the Centre will not pass your information to outside organisations unless it is necessary to do so as part of delivering the course or event, or if there is a legal obligation to do so. Under no other circumstances does the Centre pass your information to other organisations outside of the University of York.

Under the General Data Protection Regulations, you have a right of access to your data, a right to rectification, erasure (in certain circumstances), restriction, objection or portability (in certain circumstances). You also have a right to withdraw consent. If you would like to exercise these rights, please contact in the first instance.
