What personal information do we hold about you?
We collect your title, first name, last name, date of birth, email address and password in order for the reward club app to be validated and used.
Why do we collect your information?
The reason we collect the information is to be able to make the reward club app service available. This allows us to manage and improve the service. The email address gives us a point of contact to send app users special offers and promotions.
Who has access to your data at the University?
Your data is only accessed by those staff who need the information to maintain your account and troubleshoot any problems you encounter.
Who do we share your data with outside the University?
The reward club system has been developed by MCR Systems, the main university EPOS supplier. Personal information is being stored on MCR servers within the UK. MCR have confirmed that the data would not leave the UK and will not be shared with any third parties.
How long do we keep your information?
We will hold your information for up to two years. If an account is not used within this time your record will be deleted. The time frame is to allow those who take a gap year, work placement or leave from studies to return to their account.
