Manual Check-in Form – data storage
Any data the university collects for students, staff or visitors who are unable to use the NHS App via our manual form will be used solely for the purpose of supporting the NHS Test & Trace Service. With consent, we will pass on your details to the NHS if requested. Data is held for 21 days only.
Why do we need this manual check-in data?
By maintaining records of staff, students and visitors who are unable to use the NHS Covid-19 App and sharing these with NHS Test and Trace where requested, we can help identify people who may have been exposed to the virus. Containing outbreaks early is crucial to reduce the spread of Covid-19, protect the NHS and social care sector, and save lives. This will help to avoid the reintroduction of lockdown measures and support the country to return to, and maintain, a more normal way of life.
If you would like to opt-out of having any of your manually collected check-in data shared with the NHS, please either make it clear you do not wish for your manual data entry to be shared or complete the CCCU Contact Tracing Opt Out Form.
