UMRI Privacy Policy and Data Retention Statement

Effective from 25th May 2018

We aim to be fully compliant with current GPDR legislation and to let you know how we use and protect the data you’ve given us. GDPR replaces the previous Data Protection Act.

As the data controller, we process some of your personal data. This is anonymised, coded and securely stored. No one can access this information.


Data Processing means obtaining, recording or holding information. The definition is very wide, and we maintain records of personal data and processing activities and hold responsibility should there be a breach.

You can withdraw your consent for us to contact you at any time. We hope to offer you choice and control. None of your personal details or data will ever be used for writing, publishing, research or training purposes.

Only the coordinator and trustees of UMRI has access to any of your data. We will keep this process under review and refresh it if anything changes.
