3) The legal basis for the processing of the data


When you express an interest to use the Careers and Enterprise Hub you enter into a contract with the University to deliver the service free of charge, so we will need to process your personal data to provide you with this service.

Legitimate Interest

We could be required to process your personal data outside of the main provisions of the contract when our legitimate interest overrides your rights to privacy.

This includes processing your contact details to inform you about possible placements and job opportunity. We might also inform you about any additional events or opportunity we consider you could be interested in.

We will ensure you can opt out from any communications for direct marketing you do not want to receive anymore. You can read further information in our Direct Marketing Privacy Notice at the following link: 

4) Recipients of your Personal Data

For the fulfilment of the contractual relationship, CCCU may be required to transfer your data to third party organisations, including Service Providers.

When CCCU uses a company to process data on our behalf (data processors), we will ensure that a contract compliant with Art 28 of the GDPR is in place.

5) Retention Period

CCCU will retain your data for as long as required for the purposes of the fulfilment of your contract.

In details, we will retain your data for a minimum of six years after the conclusion of your contract with us.
