Will other people have access to the information released to me?

If you receive information after making a formal application, and the University believes that information may be of interest to other members of the public, the University ordinarily records it on the “disclosure log” which is made available on the University’s website.

The disclosure log describes the information that was provided to the applicant and, if it is available to other members of the public, how they can access it.

You can object to information being included in the disclosure log if it includes personal information about you or about a deceased person that you personally represent; the information concerns your business, commercial, professional, or financial interests or research undertaken.
