How we manage, use and store your data as an alumni or friend of Cardiff University.

As alumni or friends of Cardiff University, we will use your details to contact you by post, email, phone, text and/or social media, complying with any preferences you have expressed. You may also choose to tailor how we contact you, and/or may unsubscribe from any contact by Cardiff University. Please let us know of your preferences. We contact you to keep you informed of the developments and advances being made by Cardiff University, its students and staff, and its alumni.

We will also offer opportunities for you to engage with the University as an ambassador, friend and supporter. This may include fundraising, when we may ask you to support the University’s mission of creating and sharing knowledge, and educating, for the benefit of all.

The information Cardiff University retains is name, address and other contact details (if known), and information about your Cardiff University (or predecessor institution) degree course(s). We may also retain data about donations made, business details, social media addresses, telephone and email contacts, and/or other specific information that you have supplied to us via such methods as survey responses etc.

In order to maintain data integrity, we may also source and retain information which is available from trustworthy public sources. Fundraising to support the University is an important element of our charitable work, so we may undertake appraisals to consider individuals’ potential to make donations.
