HOW WE USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
This policy explains what information we gather when you visit the LSUS Alumni Network website. We also explain how that information is used.
The Office of Alumni Affairs takes your privacy seriously, but it is important for you to appreciate that the site provides extensive links to other independent sites, both within the University and elsewhere. This policy applies only to direct accesses to the LSUS website - URLs starting https://www.lsus.edu/life-after-lsus. You will need to consult the appropriate information on other sites for information on their policies.
When you access the alumni site from a computer, mobile phone, or other device, we may collect information from that device about your browser type, location, and IP address, as well as the pages you visit.
If you have a discussion with a representative with the Office of Alumni Affairs, notes of the interview will be taken. Use of this content is limited to LSUS Office of Alumni Affairs staff who have a legitimate interest in them for the purpose of carrying out their contractual duties.
The personal data we store and process, the majority of which is given to us by our alumni and supporters, may include:
- Name, title, gender and date of birth;
- Contact details including postal address, email address, phone number and links to social media accounts;
- Information about your time at the University and other academic institutions you have attended;
- Your occupation and professional activities and memberships;
- Your recreations and interests;

Any other personal information you provide to us during communication with us may be stored in the form of notes for reference purposes. This may include special category personal data, but only where you provide this to us directly or is already publicly available.
Your ‘Profile’ is where you can enter, manage and update your data and email preferences. You may also choose to provide optional details, such as preferred name, former name, occupation, company, photos, personal web page, personal comments, etc.
You may wish to share some or all of the information held in your Profile with other site members. You are able to do this via your ‘Profile' page. The only information that is automatically visible to others on your Profile page is your preferred name, surname or maiden name, matriculation year and course at CJBS. Additional information fields from your Profile, other personal information and photos etc. will appear only if you have opted to provide those items.
Other users of the platform are able to send private messages to you but you can choose whether or not to be notified when an email is sent. The site does not monitor messages sent between users.
Sharing information within the alumni website
The general online directory is designed so you can find other alumni easily. For this reason, you will appear in the directory with the information described in the Personal Information section (above). If you do not want to appear in the directory you can opt out upon registration or by accessing your Profile and removing data. You can also choose to share or hide certain personal and contact information.
The site provides you with the following options which can be changed at any time:
- to opt out of receiving emails from other site users by means of a checkbox in your Profile (the default is that other users can use the website to send you emails, though your address will never be revealed to the sender unless you choose to make it visible in your Profile)
- to unsubscribe from the site completely by requesting the deletion of your account
If you wish to opt out of all alumni communications, please contact us at email@example.com. Please note that your details will still be held on the main alumni database in accordance with University Data Protection Statement unless you notify us otherwise.
Your ability to make changes
You may request deletion of your personal data at any time by emailing the webmaster.
For those of you with a LinkedIn account, your alumni log in and LinkedIn identity can be easily connected with a single login option. If you choose to set this up, you must manually authorize the site to receive your LinkedIn credentials and allow access. The only piece of data shared between the site and LinkedIn is the LinkedIn ID, used for matching the two accounts. You can revoke this permission at any time.
If you choose to enable this feature, future logins to the site can be done via your LinkedIn login.
