Data Protection Act 1998
The Data Protection Act 1998, means that we are only able to discuss personal and individual student related matters with the student. Graduation Office staff are not at liberty to divulge information or take instruction from a third party, even if that third party is a family member.
As a graduating student, even if you will not be attending a graduation ceremony, your name and course details will be published in both the souvenir graduation programme and in the local newspaper. Please note your degree classification will not be published and it will simply be your name listed underneath your programme title. In addition to this your name will also appear on the graduation commemorative t-shirt.
If you would prefer for your name and course details to be omitted from any or all of these then please email us by 22nd August 2014
so that we can remove your details from the relevant publication.
Plymouth University graduation ceremonies are considered to be public events. There may be a university photographer present and by attending you give us permission to use any general crowd photos you appear in on our website or for marketing purposes.
The ceremonies will also be filmed and will include crowd and individual shots of graduating students and their guests. A DVD of this footage will be produced for sale and also used on our website or in promotional materials. By attending the event you and your guests consent to this taking place.
