It may change and if it does, these changes will be posted and, where appropriate, notified to you by email when you next start the Apps or log onto one of the App Sites. The new policy may be displayed on-screen and you may be required to read and accept the changes to continue your use of the Apps or the Services.

It is important that the personal data we hold about you is accurate and current. Please keep us informed if your personal data changes during our relationship with you.

Third-party links

Our Sites may, from time to time, contain links to and from the websites of our partner networks, advertisers and affiliates. Please note that these websites and any services that may be accessible through them have their own privacy policies and that we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies or for any personal data that may be collected through these websites or services, such as Contact Data and Identity Data. Please check these policies before you submit any personal data to these websites or use these services.


We may collect, use, store and transfer different kinds of personal data about you as follows:

· Identity Data.

· Contact Data.

· Device Data.

· Content Data.

· Profile Data.

· Usage Data.

· Marketing and Communications Data.

We won’t be collecting any Special Categories of Personal Data about you (the definition of Special Categories includes details about your race or ethnicity, religious or philosophical beliefs, sex life, sexual orientation, political opinions, trade union membership, information about your health, and genetic and biometric data).

We do not collect any information about criminal convictions and offences. We will ask for your consent when you first use or install the App and thereafter we will only ask for your consent again if the purpose of our processing changes.


We also create, use Aggregated Data relating specifically to the use of the App and share this data with the University and/or accommodation provider for the purpose of monitoring the impact of UNIHEADS services.

Aggregated Data could be derived from your personal data as described above, but is not considered personal data in law as this data will not directly or indirectly reveal your identity. This data falls outside of the scope of the GDPR and the UK Data Protection laws because it can’t be linked back to you. For example, we may aggregate your Usage Data to calculate the percentage of users accessing a specific App feature. However, if we combine or connect Aggregated Data with your personal data so that it can directly or indirectly identify you, we treat the combined data as personal data which will be used in accordance with this privacy policy.

This policy doesn’t necessarily need to describe what we do with aggregated data, the GDPR says this kind of data falls outside its scope because you can no longer be identified from it, but we still want to tell you about what we plan to do with this data anyway.

We will use aggregated or anonymised data for research and scientific purposes in order to either try and improve the way we deliver our own services, or for other bodies and organisations to improve student mental health outcomes. We also want to work with research groups and universities and use this data, in combination with other data sets, to help us and those third-party researchers understand health and wellbeing so that together we can try to understand the root cause and impact it has on people’s health. We might work with other people or companies for the same purposes from time to time, and we will do our best to tell you all about it on our website, or as part of our newsletter.

If you really do not want us or anyone else to use your data in this way, even though no one will be able to tell that you are the source of that data, then please contact us to let us know before you use our App or any of our Services. Because of the way in which we anonymise and aggregate data, we won’t be able to tell which data is yours if you decide you want to try to “opt-out” of this in the future, and if you do decline this processing of non-personal data then we might not be able to provide parts of our Services to you at all.
