Privacy Statement

Information about you: how we use it and with whom we share it

The information you provide will be used by the University to allow the student managed Tardis Project to provide you with services and compute resources for the purpose of research and education.

We are using information about you because we need to be able to identify you on Tardis systems, be able to contact you in case of problems with your account or in the event of important service updates. We also are required to confirm your affiliation with the University to ensure you are eligible to access these services.

We will hold the personal data you provided us for the entirety of the time you have an active account on the Tardis Project‘s systems plus no more than 24 months following the deactivation of your account and the cessation of your access to the Tardis Project‘s systems. We will also hold authentication logs for up to 24 months for the purposes of security monitoring and system troubleshooting.

We do not use profiling or automated decision-making processes. Some processes are semi-automated (such as anti-fraud data matching) but a human decision maker will always be involved before any decision is reached in relation to you.

We make use of automated systems to suspend accounts or IP addresses that are acting suspiciously to preserve the integrity of Tardis services, for example against brute-force login attacks and to detect use of the Tardis mailserver for spam. Any actions taken by these systems will be manually reviewed by a Tardis administrator at the earliest opportunity and you will be contacted if any action is taken.

If you have any questions, please contact

the Tardis Project Sysmans at sysmans@tardis.ed.ac.uk or at the following address:

Informatics Teaching Office (ITO) C.O Tardis Project Appleton Tower 11 Crighton St Edinburgh EH8 9LE
