About SLU Alumni network

Last changed: 03 June 2016

SLU's alumni are important to us. The alumni network is open to current and former students at SLU and the purpose is to promote contact between alumni and SLU for mutual exchange.

The key to the network is the alumni database SLU Alumninet. The database is only available to registered SLU alumni and to SLU’s administrators of alumni relations. Data you register in Alumninet will be treated confidentially and with respect.

We would like to know more about you

We would like to know more about you: your work, your time at SLU and how you would like to keep in touch with us. Except for some mandatory fields you choose what data you want to register.

Your personal data (name, address, education, degree and year of degree) are automatically transferred from the student records system Ladok. After you register, the same data is visible to other alumni in the database. You decide yourself whether you want to display other information to the members in the network.

Develop contacts based on your interests
The information you provide will be used to develop alumni activities and contact between you, other alumni and SLU. By filling in how you want to continue your contact with us, we can develop and customise our services to you based on your preferences.

Data protection

In accordance with the Swedish Personal Data Act (PuL), we want to inform you how SLU uses your personal information. The purpose of the Personal Data Act is to protect privacy when personal data is processed, and a part of the integrity protection is to inform about how data is used. By registering in SLU’s AlumniNet you accept that SLU may store and process your personal data.

Personal information in the alumni database will be used to maintain contact with alumni in order to create and strengthen relationships for mutual benefit. Summaries of the information you provide may be used for statistical purposes. This information will not be possible to relate to a particular individual.

SLU is a state authority governed by the principle of public access to official documents. We may in some cases be required to supply information held by us. You have the right at any time to access all information registered about you.

Civic registration number

Your civic registration number verifies that you are a current or former student at SLU. If you live in Sweden, it will also be needed to update your home address. It will only be accessible to staff at SLU.

Reservations

For SLU AlumniNet to be a nice and attractive service, all users are required to follow generally adopted network ethics. The database is not for marketing or advertising. We reserve the right to terminate your subscription of SLU AlumniNet if you do not follow the guidelines or if you otherwise abuse the site. We also reserve the right to remove anything that could be considered offensive or discriminatory.

Data Protection Officer at SLU is Anna Jarmar, Anna.Jarmar@slu.se
