Our processing of data has the objective of enabling us to provide services to library users. We use the data to provide the following services:
The library has an access control system that allows authorised users to enter and exit library buildings and manage library spaces. The information collected works with the Library Management systems.
The library keeps track of borrowing transactions through our library management system. We log authentications to electronic resources and services (e.g. Blackboard, DMU Resource Lists). These are subject to the code of conduct for staff and / or students. In using any of these tools, there will be some data which is stored and used depending on the service being accessed. Our suppliers also have policies protecting personal data, for example: Talis Aspire (DMU Resource List)
Some of the resources to which we provide access themselves offer services which involves the collection of personal data. For example, saved searches, alerts and bookshelves. Library and Learning Services strongly advises that you read any privacy notice from such third parties before engaging with their services.
We use electronic forms to gather personal information for purposes directly related to a service for example, requesting inter-library loans. Email enquiries to general LLS email addresses, individual members of staff or feedback submissions may also include personal information. The information collected will only be used in relation to that service or the monitoring of trends in service delivery.
We process the data disclosed during the booking of workshops and tutorials to enable the bookings and to monitor the use of the service.
This information is subject to the code of conduct for staff to ensure the proper use of this information.
We would not disclose your booking data to any other parties without your written consent.
Where you require us to make reasonable adjustments to enable you to attend a session or sit an exam, we would be likely to require further information from you. Information about your physical or mental health will only be used by us with your explicit consent, to assess your eligibility. We will not share or disclose it to others. You can withdraw your consent at any time by request.
We are committed to ensuring that your personal data is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have put in place appropriate technical, physical and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect from you.
