As many alumni will know, Merton, in common with several other colleges, has transferred to a new database system, known as DARS. (Development & Alumni Relations System). This system holds the details of alumni, students, staff and friends previously held in separate alumni and development databases of the University and the participating colleges. More colleges are joining and the result will be a single, comprehensive database allowing, on a regulated basis, colleges, faculties, departments, administrative units, international offices, recognised alumni societies, and sports and other entities associated with the University access to all the data held in it. We hope that this will lead to the details of our alumni, students, staff and friends being kept more up to date and that it will help improve our communications with you.
Your data is held securely. For full details on the way in which your data will be held and used, please see the DARS Data Protection Statement. If at any time you have any queries about the use of your personal data in DARS or wish to change the fact, or extent of use of your personal data, please send us an email.
