Everything you tell us will be treated confidentially. However, if in the opinion of the Adviser, a student is in danger of harming themselves and/or others, or if there is a disclosure of harm being caused by a third party to others, Advisers have a duty of care to students and reserve the right to breach confidentiality by reporting this to SU and/or ARU staff, normally using the ‘Cause for Concern’ process found here or contacting emergency services. Advice Service staff are not expected to tolerate abusive or aggressive behaviour and the service may be withdrawn following any such instances and will be confirmed in writing.
All students have various new rights to their data being used under new GDPR rules, e.g. you can opt out of support from the Advice Service and can withdraw consent to services at any time, this should be done in writing, via email to: firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. Once confirmed by the Advice Service your case will be closed and you will not be contacted by the Advice Service, unless you contact us again for new advice. For more information on your rights about your personal data please speak to an Adviser.
By ticking this box I give consent to ARU Students’ Union Advice Service to act on my behalf both orally and in writing about my case with ARU staff and when needed with staff from external organisations. Including giving my permission for ARU staff to release information to the Advice Service. I understand that my personal information including reasons relating to my need for Advice will be stored electronically/and or in hard copies for seven years.
