  • BU event booking forms

We may also obtain information about you in other ways, for example through your attendance at UCAS events, from any agent or representative acting on your behalf or from people you identify as referees in an application form.  Where data protection legislation applies to these third parties, they should provide separate privacy information which covers their sharing of your data with BU.
