Data protection 

In the course of subscribing to the Translational Pharmacology e-newsletter, you have provided information about yourself (‘personal data’). We (the University of Oxford) are the ‘data controller’ for this information, which means we decide how to use it and are responsible for looking after it in accordance with the UK General Data Protection Regulation and associated data protection legislation. 


How we use your data 

We will use your data to subscribe you to the mailing list, send you periodic e-newsletters and to provide you with information about opportunities to participate in studies.

We are processing your data for these purposes only because you have given us your consent to do so by completing the form. You can withdraw your consent at any time by clicking on “Unsubscribe” which can be found on the e-newsletter or contacting us by email on or phone (01865) 613728. In this event, we will stop the processing as soon as we can. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before your withdrawal of consent 

We will only use your data for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another related reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. If we need to use your data for an unrelated purpose, we will seek your consent to use it for that new purpose.


Who has access to your data? 

Access to your data within the University will be provided to those who need to view it as part of their work in carrying out the purposes described above.


Retaining your data 

We will retain your data for as long as the Translational Pharmacology Mailing List is active and we have your continued consent.

Where an individual chooses to unsubscribe, we will retain the minimum data (name, email address and details of your un-subscribe) in a ‘do not contact list’ to ensure that we do not send you the newsletter again and to comply with statutory obligations (e.g. to comply with your objection to processing). At this point, the legal basis for processing data for the ‘do not contact list’ will be legitimate interests. Any other data that we hold about the individual will be securely destroyed when they unsubscribe. 


Your data will be held securely in accordance with the University’s policies and procedures. Further information is available on the University’s Information Security website:

Where we store and use your data 

We store and use your data on University premises, in electronic form on secure University managed servers.
