Personally Identifiable Information

QMU collects personally identifiable information such as your name, address, telephone number, or email address only if you provide that information to us voluntarily.

QMU will not disclose your personally identifiable information unless required to do so by law or in the good faith and belief that such action is necessary to: (1) conform to the edicts of the law; (2) protect and defend the rights or property of QMU.

We also collect certain information about our Web visitors automatically, such as your domain name, the type of Internet browser you use, and the operating system you use. This information is used only for internal review, to help us improve the content of our Web page. The information is not shared with any other company or used by QMU to contact visitors.

If a child has provided us with personally identifiable information, a parent or guardian of that child should e-mail us at: marketing@qmu.ac.uk or telephone 0131 474 0000 if they would like this information deleted from our records. We will use reasonable efforts to delete the child's information from our existing files.
