Privacy Notice

The University of Southampton’s Future Worlds accelerator runs entrepreneurship engagement and acceleration activities that help staff and student entrepreneurs change the world with their ideas. We value your privacy and we recognise the need to process your personal data in a fair and lawful manner.

Our Privacy Notices make you aware of how and why your personal data will be used and how long it will be retained. These notices may be amended from time to time but the current versions will always be available here.

We have three Privacy Notices that distinguish between our engagement and acceleration activities.

We’re building an entrepreneurial culture on campus, and our ‘Engagement’ Privacy Notice explains how we use data when you engage with activities such as talks and workshops:

Future Worlds Privacy Notice – Engagement

We’re also helping drive the creation of University startups and spinouts by connecting entrepreneurs with our unique network of mentors and investors. Our ‘Acceleration’ Privacy Notices explain how we use data during this process for both internal and external stakeholders:

Future Worlds Privacy Notice – Acceleration – University of Southampton staff and students

Future Worlds Privacy Notice – Acceleration – non-University of Southampton
