Online chatting will be subject to the ISAS Data Protection and Confidentiality Statement:

I understand that all information and supporting documentation supplied by me will be used for the purpose of assisting the Student Advisers to provide relevant information, advice and services. I agree that information and supporting documentation supplied by me may be held on file and maintained in accordance with the provisions of the Data Protection Act 1998.

I understand that no information will be given to any external agency without my express consent, unless the provision of such information is required by law.

I understand that ISAS will maintain confidentiality within the parameters of its statutory obligations to disclose certain information. ISAS is obliged under the Points Based Immigration System, to report breach of immigration conditions to the UKBA, for example, over working, or not registering with the police. Furthermore, I understand that, in the rare event of a student being assessed "at risk" either to themselves or to others and if they are unwilling or unable to take appropriate action themselves, the Head of ISAS will be informed and will assume responsibility for acting to ensure the health and safety of an individual or others e.g. by seeking medical assistance.

I understand that Case Records may be made available for inspection by the Immigration Services Commissioner, upon request, subject to Data Protection Regulations.
