We will use the personal data provided by University employees to understand how opinions and experiences vary between different groups of colleagues and to help identify ways of making improvements at the University. The survey results will also inform our work on employment and equality charters such as Athena Swan, the Race Equality Charter, the Stonewall Workplace Equality Index, the Mindful Employer Charter and the HR Excellence in Research Award.
We collect job-related and demographic data which includes ‘special category’ or sensitive data on nationality group, ethnicity, religion or belief, gender reassignment, sexual orientation, disability and mental health. There are also five open comments questions. All questions are optional.
We will process your data only because you have given us your explicit consent to do so. 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 first seek your consent.
