We will use your personal data to allow us to process your registration, communicate with you and obtain feedback about our events. 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 and Zoom, which are third party services not operated by the University of Edinburgh.
