Conference Registration Privacy Statement

Read on for our Conference Registration Privacy Statement. This is relevant for anyone who has registered to attend a PPLS conference.

Information about you: how we use it and with whom we share it

We will use your personal data to allow us to process your registration, communicate with you and obtain your feedback about the event. We are processing the information about you for these purposes because by registering for the conference, you give your consent for us to do so. We will also contact you about future events you might be interested in if you have given your consent to this. You may opt out of this at any time.

In order to facilitate online bookings for our events, we use ePay – a third party service which is not operated by the University of Edinburgh. Details of ePay’s privacy policy can be found at the link below:

If you wish to attend an event organized by the School of PPLS, but do not wish to use ePay, please email us at: ppls.schooloperations@ed.ac.uk

By registering for the conference we will share your name, affiliation and contact details with the organisers of the event. We will not share information about you with any other third party.

We will hold the personal data you provided us for 6 months. If you have agreed to be contacted about future events, we will hold your personal data for as long as you subscribe to these updates. Financial data such as a payment record will be held for 7 years, but we will ensure that all information that can identify you directly is removed after 6 months.

We do not use profiling or automated decision-making processes. 

If you have any questions, please contact ppls.schooloperations@ed.ac.uk
