Third Party Service Providers

There are occasions where the University may use a third party to provide a service for you. Examples of this include the online payments system and the online careers management system. For these services to function the University needs to provide the operator with details about students to enable them to confirm your identity when you use the service. Before any information is provided to a third party they have to sign a Data Sharing Agreement which ensures that your data will only be used by them should you wish to use the service they offer and that it will be protected in accordance with the Data Protection Act.
