Local Privacy Notice

Collecting your details to communicate our work

As of 25th May 2018, we are aligning with the European Union’s new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR). 

This mail provides an overview of the conditions in which UCL IHE collects, stores and uses your data, facilitated by MailChimp and Google Analytics. We provide instructions on how to to unsubscribe or update your preferences at the bottom of this page.

Collecting Your Information
We collect data (name, email address, IP address) in a number of ways, for example, via an embedded sign-up form on our website.

Sometimes a subscriber's details are added manually, either by administrative staff upon permission given by an individual, or directly by the individual who can update their profile personally.  Providing this information works as confirmation that you are happy for us to collect your data for our internal information. If you would like to change that you can contact us any time to do so.

We also monitor activity on our website, when you do one (or more) of the following:

  1. Download any of our reports or case studies
  2. Browse from page to page
  3. Complete any of our contact forms

Storing Your Information
When you subscribe to our newsletter, your data is stored only on MailChimp servers and is not stored internally using UCL systems. This means that your data could be stored outside of the EU, as MailChimp is a non EU company.

Unless you have selected specific privacy options on your browser, when you browse our website or download reports, data relating to your IP activity, whilst on our website, is stored on our Google Analytics account.

Using Your Information
Your personal information will never be shared by us outside of UCL Institute of Health equity, or used by us other than to monitor website activity, or send newsletters, updates and emails to subscribers. We will only use Google Analytics data to monitor and analyse activity related to browsing our website and downloading reports from our website. This process allows us to reflect  on and change our website to improve content and functionality.

Unsubscribing,  Updating, and Deleting Your Information
If you would like to be unsubscribed from our newsletter and email updates, or if you would like to update your profile on MailChimp you can do this at any time. The easiest way to do this is to follow the labelled links 'unsubscribe' and 'update my preferences', which should be embedded in your last mail out from us.  Alternatively, you can contact us directly to discuss the data we hold on: 020 7679 1705. If you have any questions or if something is unclear, please get in touch at p.hallam@ucl.ac.uk
