How your Data will be used

The data you provide will be used by us for administration of the programme and to help identify opportunities for our users to learn more about cyber security. As per our Privacy Policy (see link above), data you provide to us will not be sold, or shared with third parties for marketing purposes. Where required, for the running of the service and The Programme, the data will be shared between the appointed consortium members. This will not be for any reason other than running the Programme and delivering the advertised service.

You may be contacted from time to time and offered opportunities to participate in additional relevant activities or services based on your performance in the programme. As part of our platform and communication policy you may configure which communications you do not wish to receive, although you are required to receive account and security related messages in order to use the service.

Any data that you share with us through registration or throughout the entirety of the programme will be kept for 5 years or until your account is terminated, whichever is longer. This data will be used for the purposes of the programme to develop cyber security talent. As a student we will respect your right to be forgotten and you may notify us that you wish to remove your account and data from the programme and service. If you notify us through the support channel we will remove your account and personal information prior to the timeframes above. As a club leader you may request account termination, however while your account may be disabled we will preserve your data for the purposes of safeguarding and any future requirement to identify you.
