Events

We will use your personal data to allow us to process your registration, communicate with you and obtain your feedback about the event. We process information about you for these purposes because by registering for our events, you are entering into a contractual agreement for us to do so.  In order to facilitate online bookings for our events, we use Eventbrite - a third party service which is not operated by the University of Edinburgh. Details of the Eventbrite privacy policy can be found at: 

https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/support/articles/en_US/Troubleshooting/eventbrite-privacy-policy?lg=en_GB 

If you wish to attend an event organised by the Centre for Research in Digital Education, MHOnline or Data Education in Schools but do not wish to use Eventbrite to sign up, please email event organiser.  Contact details for each event are provided on the event booking page.

We will not share information about you with any other third party. After the event, we may ask you for feedback via Eventbrite as it is our legitimate interest to help us improve any future events we organise.  Your details will then be removed from Eventbrite and held by the University of Edinburgh as specified: Centre for Research in Digital Education events (1 year), MHOnline (1 year), Data Education in Schools (2027, project end).    

If you have agreed to be contacted about future events, we will hold your personal data for as long as you subscribe to these updates via our mailing list. 

We do not use profiling or automated decision-making processes.   If you have any questions, please contact DEresearch@ed.ac.uk using the subject line 'Event query'.
