Digital Education 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: 

If you wish to attend an event organised by the Centre for Research in Digital Education but do not wish to use Eventbrite to sign up, please email us at:  

We will not share information about you with any other third party. After the event, we may ask you for feedback as it is our legitimate interest to help us improve any future events we organise.  We will hold the personal data you provided us for two years. 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.  

We do not use profiling or automated decision-making processes.   If you have any questions, please contact Dr Claire Sowton, Project and Communications Manager, Centre for Research in Digital Education, Moray House School of Education,
