  • Upon leaving CUMPC and becoming an ‘Old Blue’, your contact information will be sent to the Old Blues club organisers unless you opt out.

We may also be subject to a legal requirement (with or without your consent) to share your personal information with the University or a government agency (such as the police or security services or other statutory authorities with investigatory powers) under special circumstances (e.g. relating to tax, crime or health and safety). Where feasible and appropriate, we will notify you of our intention to share such information in advance.
