Using your data

The data you provide will be processed and held by the University of Cambridge for the purposes of organising an event, sending you information about the University and/or tracking future applications. It will always be safeguarded under the terms of the Data Protection Act 1998.

Personal data collected from prospective applicants will retained in its captured form until the point at which the student could reasonably have been expected to apply to higher education. After this time, the data will be anonymised and any data not required for statistical purposes will be deleted.
