Alumni Online Privacy Policy & Terms of Use

Website privacy policy and terms and conditions of use

Once you have received confirmation from us that you are able to access the private pages, we would ask you to read the following:

  • Like most other websites, this site automatically logs certain information about every request made of it. This information is used for system administration, and for producing usage statistics.
  • We provide some links to other servers which may contain information of interest to our members. We take no responsibility for, and exercise no control over the organisations, views, or accuracy of the information contained on other servers.
  • We are committed to ensuring that the website is accessible to all users. Please do let us know if you feel we could improve on this in any way.
  • The members’ area of Trinity Members Online is a confidential system for use by members of Trinity College only.
  • You must not disclose your password to another person who might then be able to access your details and the system generally. Any unauthorised use by non-members is strictly forbidden and may result in legal action.
  • There are some elements of your personal data that can be approved for or withheld from publication by you. The removal of a tick in the check box against any item indicates that you have approved its being made available to other members for viewing within the logged in section of the website.
  • Trinity College is registered as required by the 1998 Data Protection Act and abides by its Code of Practice on how it uses information contained in the database used by the Alumni Relations & Development Office

The 1998 Data Protection Act

All data is securely held in the College’s Alumni Relations & Development Office and will be treated confidentially and with sensitivity for the benefit of Trinity College and its members. Selected data is available to the University, and occasionally to recognised alumni societies and volunteers, College clubs, and agents contracted by the College for specific alumni-related projects. Data is used for a full range of alumni activities, including the sending of College publications, the promotion of benefits and services to members, the notification of members’ events and the raising of funds for Trinity, all of which might include an element of direct marketing. Under the terms of the 1998 Data Protection Act you have the right to object to the use of your data for any of these purposes.

If you have any complaints or general enquiries on data protection issues, please contact the Junior Bursar, who is the College’s Data Protection Officer.
