The Advanced University website collects personal data from you in two ways:
Our website includes several different types of online form, as explained below. The data gathered through online forms will only be used for the purpose described on collection unless you also consent to other defined uses.
When you complete an online form on www.Advanced.ac.uk, blogs.Advanced.ac.uk or sites.Advanced.ac.uk, the personal data you provide is sent to Advanced University. It may then be passedto trusted partners under contract to help us do what you requested (such as sending you a printed prospectus).
The data collected automatically by our website helps us understand which parts of it are most popular, where visitors are coming from and how they are using it. This allows us to make improvements in future.
On parts of our website, we use code provided by Google, Facebook or Snapchat to serve adverts based on someone’s past visit (retargeting) and to measure the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns. This code sends data to Google, Facebook or Snapchat about the individual pages visited, actions completed on the page, IP address, device and browser.
This data may be held outside of the EU. Google, Facebook and Snapchat are certified compliant with the EU-US Privacy Shield. You can request this data or ask for it to be deleted via the Facebook Your Information, Google Account and Snapchat Support pages or visit Your Online Choices and switch off behavioural advertising from a large number of companies.
When we use interactive maps that show your position, we will do so only with your consent. If you provide consent, the map will use the coordinates of your current location but this data will not be sent to us or stored.
On pages that have embedded Twitter content, we instruct Twitter not to record any information about you. You can opt-out of all Twitter tracking from the Twitter Personalisation settings page.
Our web servers record requests for web pages (URLs) but no personal data is collected or stored.
Our website does not currently support the “Do not track” browser setting.
We reserve the right to change this information without notice.
