Privacy policy

Our privacy policy describes how 'Personally Identifiable Information' (PII) is used on our website. PII is information that can be used on its own or with other information to identify, contact, or locate a single person, or to identify an individual in context. Please read our privacy policy carefully to get a clear understanding of how we collect, use, protect or otherwise handle your Personally Identifiable Information in accordance with our website.

What personal information do we collect from the people that visit our website ?

When ordering or registering on our site, as appropriate, you may be asked to enter your name, email address, mailing address, phone number or other details to help make using the website as straightforward as possible.

We also offer you the option when you book a residential course to provide us with information about any additional needs that you may have (e.g. dietary or medical) so that we can discuss what we can do to help when you attend.

When do we collect information?

We collect information from you when you register on our site, place an order or enter information on our site.

How do we use your information?

We may use the information we collect from you when you register, make a purchase, sign up for our newsletter, respond to a survey or marketing communication, browse the website, or use certain other site features to quickly process your transactions.

We only provide articles and information. We never ask for credit card numbers on the OUPS website or store credit card details online.

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your Personally Identifiable Information.

Information about additional needs that you give us when booking is considered to be confidential and is shared with the relevant OUPS officers (e.g. Student Support, weekend organiser, business administrator) only.

External links

Some of our pages include external links, such as directions to venues where we hold events, or to information about the accessibility of these venues.

However while we provide these for the convenience of users of our website, OUPS are not responsible for the content of the websites we link to for these purposes. We cannot guarantee the accuracy of content on these pages, and inclusion of a link to an external website does not imply that we endorse that website or of its owners. These third-party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our site and welcome any feedback about these sites.


Like many websites we use cookies to store and then retrieve small bits of information on your computer when you visit. This information is used to make the OUPS website work as you expect it to. It is not personally identifiable to you, but it can be used to give you a more personalised web experience.

Some of the information stored is put there by other companies whose software we have added to the site (e.g. Google, Facebook), and this can also impact your experience of other websites you may visit after leaving ours.

If you continue to use this site without taking action to prevent the storage of this information, you are effectively agreeing to this use.

If you want to learn more about the general uses of cookies, including how to stop them being stored by your computer, please visit Cookiepedia - all about cookies.

Below is a list of the different types of cookies used on the OUPS website, and an explanation of what they are used for.

  • Performance Cookies

    These cookies allow us to count visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of our site. They help us to know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the site.
