How we use your personal information

The University of Cambridge’s Office of External Affairs and Communications uses your personal information to send you emails about news and events in line with your subscription(s). Your name and email address are used with your permission and only to send you information that you have requested. You can withdraw your consent at any time.

We use a third party provider, Campaign Monitor, to send our emails. We share your name, email address and details of your subscriptions with Campaign Monitor. We gather statistics about email opens and clicks using industry standard technologies (including clear gifs) to help us monitor what content is popular and to improve the content of our emails. For more information, please see Campaign Monitor’s privacy notice.

Any transfers of your data outside of the European Economic Area, for example to our email service provider, are protected either by an 'adequacy decision' by the European Commission (declaring the recipient country as a 'safe' territory for personal data) or by standard contractual clauses adopted by the European Commission (which give obligations for the recipient to safeguard the data).

We are committed to protecting your personal information and being transparent about what information we hold. For further details about how your information is used, how we maintain the security of your information and your rights under data protection law, please read our general data protection statement.
