The Student Hub treats personal information it collects through its website, platforms and engagement with students as private and confidential.

Collection

We collect personal information directly from you, and where lawful and reasonable, we may collect personal information about you from third parties and publicly available sources for the purposes set out below.

Your consent

We will process your personal information if you give us your consent willingly or in accordance with the law. You give your consent to us through our product and services agreements.

We will only disclose your personal information if:

 

Third parties

We ask individuals, organisations and our subsidiaries and affiliates for support that include future prospective employers who may require access to your information for job placements. When we do this, they have to agree to our privacy principles, associated policies and practices.

We will not disclose your personal information to external organisations that are not our service providers, unless you gave us your consent, or unless we may do so by law, or if it is necessary for the conclusion or performance of our agreement with you.

Storing personal information

We store personal information as required by law.

Our security practices

Our security systems are designed to prevent loss, unauthorised destruction, damage and/or access to your personal information from unauthorised third parties.

Access to your personal information

As a student who has engaged with us, you may: (a) ask us to give you a description of your personal information that we hold; and (b) ask us to correct or update your personal information through our customer service channels.

[We may, if allowed by law, charge a fee for this.]
