University Privacy Statement

Personal Information

The University of Wales does not capture and store any personal information about individuals who access this website, except where :

  • you voluntarily choose to give us your personal details via e-mail
  • by enquiring about any of the courses offered at our Institutions
  • by making enquiries about bookings at Gregynog Hall
  • by making enquiries or placing orders for books or other goods with the University of Wales Press or other offices of the University of Wales

In these cases, the personal information you give us is used by The University of Wales for providing you current and future information about the University, its offices and central services as described in this website, or its Institutions. We do not pass any of your personal data to any organisations outside of the University’s Institutions and/or to any individuals except where it is necessary to complete an order for goods and services.

Personal information is also recorded where you are accessing the staff-only, internal pages of the site which require authentication. In this cases, the username used during authentication becomes part of the web site log files and may be used in any investigation of suspected security breaches. These logs are removed approximately every 3 months and do not form part of the internet monitoring scheme used by the University.


The University of Wales only sends cookies from this website in order to maintain state between pages, such as your screen monitor resolution or selected language and does not use them to collect personal information. The University monitors the IP addresses of visitors only to assess which pages are the most popular. These IP addresses are not linked to any personal data so that visitors to our website remain anonymous.

FTP Site

Where you have visited the University’s FTP sites and provided an electronic mail address as a password, this will be held in the log files for the service for a period not longer than 1 year and will be used only for statistical purposes in monitoring which documents are downloaded and how frequently. We hope that such monitoring will help us to improve our service to site visitors.

Data Protection

You have a right to know about the personal information The University of Wales holds about you, if any. You also have a right to have your data corrected or deleted. Please address all your requests and/or queries about our data protection policy to:
