School of Medicine Privacy Notice

What is a Privacy Notice?

A privacy notice is a statement that describes how the University of Liverpool collects, uses, retains and discloses personal information. Personal information is any information that can be used to identify a living individual, directly or indirectly.

The law says that personal information should be processed fairly:

  • Information is used in a way that people would reasonably expect; and
  • People know how their information will be used by us. 

This means we are required to inform you of the following:

  • Why we need your data;
  • How it will be used; 
  • With whom it will be shared; and
  • Your rights to control how we use your information.

The UK’s data protection legislation covers the lawful processing of personal information. Please see the University’s Data Protection Policy for further details.

There is a privacy notice specific to the MBChB programme. Please see the MBChB School of Medicine Privacy Notice for further details.
