Research School Network: For subscribers to emails

For subscribers to emails


Introduction

This privacy notice will inform you as to how we look after your personal data when you subscribe to receive one of our Research School Network’s email newsletter or other email services provided by the RSN. This page should be read in conjunction with the information on the main RSN privacy notice page
which covers information relevant to anyone whose data is used by the RSN including your rights. 

Purpose and lawful basis for processing

The purpose for collecting your data is so we can keep you informed about our news, resources, and events. 

The lawful basis we rely on for processing your personal data is your consent under article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR.

What we need and why we need it

We collect your name and email address so that we can send you our email newsletter. We also request limited work information, such as job title and institution, to help us understand who is interested in receiving emails from the RSN so we can ensure the content is relevant. 

How long we keep it

Our email newsletter is an ongoing publication and data will be retained unless and until you withdraw your consent.

What are your rights?

We rely on your consent to process the personal data you provide to us for marketing purposes. This means you have the right to withdraw your consent, or to object to the processing of your personal data for this purpose at any time. If you do that, we’ll update our records immediately to reflect your wishes.

For more information on your rights, please see Your rights’ on the main RSN privacy notice page. 

Do we use any data processors?

Yes. We use MailChimp to maintain our mailing lists and to deliver RSN communications by email. MailChimp stores this data in the US and we rely on the Privacy Shield Framework to justify transferring the data overseas. Further information can be found in MailChimp’s privacy notice.
