BU Privacy Notice: Public Events & General Enquiries

BU is using colour coding to provide a quick, easily-accessible indication of the legal basis for processing.  This box explains how the colour coding in this Notice links to relevant conditions set out in the GDPR: references to Articles are to the relevant provisions within the GDPR.  The conditions listed here are those which BU is relying on in relation to the processing covered by this Notice and may not be a complete list of all available conditions under the data protection legislation.
