The general principles we follow for collecting and using data, along with details of your rights, can be seen in the Cambridge University Press & Assessment Privacy Statement. If you have any questions about this, please contact:

This Privacy Policy supplements the main Data Protection and Privacy Statement and specifically concerns personal data that is collected via our website, when you make an enquiry and/or use a service provided by us, in Group Archives.

If you use your credit or debit card to pay for a service, this is done via a secure online payment system which complies with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS).

Personal information disclosed by more extensive users of the Group Archives, such as visiting researchers and depositors, may be retained indefinitely as part of the management of the Group Archives. This information will not be shared with anyone outside of the Group Archives team but may be used to track the location and use of archival documents and to provide general anonymised statistical information for future collection management practices.
