Our donor research activities

Whether you are an existing or a potential donor, we (or service providers on our behalf) may carry out research to assess your likely ability and willingness to make a gift to the University.

We do this so, should we wish to approach you to make a gift, we can do so respectfully and with an understanding of your interests and capacity to make a gift.

This research may include collecting and processing information about you that is publicly available as well as information that you have provided to us. We may also collect personal information from third parties which provide data analytics, profiling or market research services, provided that they have a lawful basis to share this information with us.
