Protecting data – your help needed

It is important that we continue to work together to maintain the highest standards of protecting the personal data of our applicants. 

Our students expect us to look after the information we collect and hold about them. As a valued agent of Cranfield, we want to make sure you are aware of data protection regulations which apply to you as you are collecting and sharing student data with us.

If data is stored or shared incorrectly, it could cause reputational damage, not only to Cranfield but potentially yourself, and result in financial penalties. That’s why we want to ask you to consider the following when collecting/sharing data with the University:

  • Use Gecko Apps to collect data from potential students at events rather than spreadsheets or emails
  • Do not share personal information if it doesn’t need to be shared – if you are requesting a commission payment, please ensure any student information in a spreadsheet is password protected
  • Password protect any data containing personally identifiable information and send the password using a different method, such as providing it over the telephone, agreeing a password in advance or send a separate email.
  • Only share the information with the agreed Cranfield contact and do not copy others in.

We continue to want to work closely with you to ensure that we all understand our responsibilities and protect the interests of our students. If you have any questions about processing personal data contact your Cranfield International Representative or gdpr@cranfield.ac.uk
