Digital Marketing and Events
When someone visits our website we use a third party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone.
Search terms used on our website are collected and processed anonymously to help improve our website and search functionality. No user-specific data is collected by the College.
When you register for, or attend, one of our events we will ask you to complete some basic information regarding your name, contact details, subject area(s) you are interested in studying and the level of study (full-time, undergraduate, apprenticeships or part-time). You may also be asked about your current situation, including school/college currently attending and likely year of entry. This data is collected to ensure we can provide you with the information that you may need to study with us, and improve the advice that we provide you with, as well as understand the geographic reach that we have as an educational provider. At the time of requesting the information your consent to process this data will be sought. This data will be held for a maximum of three years, or until the expected year of entry to the College (as determined by the information submitted and your date of birth) has passed.
If you participate in any discussion on our social media platforms, you may provide us with information such as your name and address, email or phone number.
