Use of Getting-in Media Group services both within the UK and internationally is provided by Getting-in under the following terms:
- If you use Getting-in you agree to be bound by these conditions, which will become operative as soon as you make your first use of Getting-in. If you cannot agree to be bound by the following terms, please do not make any use of Getting-in.
- Getting-in may alter these terms occasionally and so you need to check them regularly. If you go on using Getting-in, that will be interpreted as you accepting the modified terms. If you do not accept the changes, you must stop using this website. If there is any disagreement between these terms and any particular local terms appearing elsewhere on the Getting-in website then those local terms will prevail.
- You must agree to use Getting-in only for legally acceptable purposes, and in a way that does not invade the rights of anyone else's use of Getting-in. Unacceptable actions include harassing or causing distress or inconvenience to any person, or interfering with the normal flow of material within Getting-in.
- All copyright, trademarks, and other intellectual property rights (whether registered or not) in Getting-in, and all content (including all applications) of the site shall remain the property of Getting-in or its associates. You are not allowed to copy, reproduce, deconstruct, download, post, broadcast, transmit, or make available to the public Getting-in content in any way other than for your own personal, non-commercial use. You also agree not create a new work derived from any Getting-in content except for your own personal, non-commercial use. Any other use of Getting-in content will necessitate the prior written permission of Getting-in.
- Names and images used by Getting-in or third parties and all their products and services are subject to the copyright and trademarks of Getting-in and/or those third parties. Nothing contained in these terms shall be interpreted as supplying any licence or right to use any trade mark or copyright belonging to Getting-in or any other third party.
- Getting-in website content, including the information, names and images related to Getting-in, its products and services (or to third party products and services), is provided "AS IS" and on an "AS AVAILABLE" basis. To the extent permitted by law, Getting-in excludes all warranties (whether stated or implied by law), including the implied warranties of satisfactory quality, fitness for a particular purpose, security and accuracy. Getting-in does not guarantee the appropriateness, completeness or performance of the website or any of its content. While we make every effort to ensure that all content provided by Getting-in is correct at the time of publication, no responsibility is accepted by or on behalf of Getting-in for any errors, omissions or inaccurate content on the website.

You must accept that it is your responsibility as user to put in place sufficient procedures and virus checks (including anti-virus and other security checks) to meet your particular requirements for the accuracy and usability of data.
- If any of these terms is judged to be outside the law, invalid or otherwise unenforceable by reason of the laws of any state or country in which these terms are designed to be effective, then, to the extent to which that term is illegal, invalid or unenforceable, it shall be nullified and deleted from these terms and the remaining terms shall continue to be binding and enforceable.
- If for any reason Getting-in delays to exercise or enforce any right in these terms, that does not cancel Getting-in's right to enforce that right.
- These terms shall be governed by and interpreted in accordance with the laws of England and Wales which shall have exclusive jurisdiction over any disputes.
Getting-in reserves the right to revise these Terms at any time by updating or modifying them. You should check the Website from time to time to review the then current Terms, which will be binding on you. Certain provisions of these Terms may be altered by expressly designated Terms, or Terms located on particular pages of the Website.
PART II - PRIVACY
1. Introduction and General Terms
Getting-in sometimes needs to collect information about you to provide you with the full range of services.
- what information Getting-in may collect about you;
- how we will use this information;
- under what circumstances we may use your details to contact you;
- whether we will disclose your details to anyone else;
- your choices regarding the personal information you have provided to us;
2. What information will Getting-in collect about you?
When you sign up to a service from the Getting-in website, we may ask for personal information about you. This will probably consist of information such as your name, e-mail address, postal address, telephone or mobile number and date of birth.
By giving this information, you enable Getting-in and any of its associates to provide you with the services you select.
It is possible that on particular web pages we may require you to provide additional personal information. When we do this we will explain on these web pages why we are collecting your information and how we will use it.
We also use your IP address to detect whether you are gaining access to the services from the UK or abroad.
3. How will Getting-in use this information about me?
Getting-in will use your personal information for a number of purposes such as the following;
- for "service administration purposes", which means that Getting-in may contact you in connection with the service you have signed up for (e.g. to provide you with password reminders or to notify you that a particular service has been suspended for maintenance);
- to respond to you about some contact you have made with the website, including any content you provide;
- to adapt the way Getting-in content is presented to you in terms of your individual interests or needs;
- IP addresses are used to identify where you are in the world, how often we are visited from different countries and also to block disruptive use; and
- to analyse and improve the services offered by Getting-in, e.g. to provide you with the most appropriate navigation methods.
It is your responsibility to keep your own site login information secure. If you are using a shared computer, please ensure you log out of the Getting-in website or close down the browser before leaving the computer for the next user.
4. When will Getting-in contact me?
Getting-in may contact you:
- with reference to any service you have signed up for, so that Getting-in can deliver the service to you;
- if you have chosen to receive further correspondence;
- in response to any contribution you have made to Getting-in;
- to ask you to take part in surveys about Getting-in services (always voluntary); and
- for newsletter updates relating to Getting-in and carefully selected partners/sponsors,
- for marketing purposes, where you have specifically agreed to receive such contact.
Specific events on the website will provide detailed information about how Getting-in will contact you in relation to relevant services.
5. Will I be contacted for sales purposes?
Getting-in will only contact you for marketing purposes or promote new services to you if you have already agreed to such contact. Getting-in may also send you details of services from carefully selected partners/sponsors in such cases.
6. Will Getting-in provide my personal information to anyone else?
We will keep your information confidential except where disclosure is required or permitted by law, or as described in the paragraph below.
We will only use your information within the Getting-in domain, except where Getting-in uses third parties to deliver the service or process your information. Getting-in always requires third parties to comply strictly with its instructions and Getting-in demands that they do not use your personal information for their own business purposes.
Unfortunately, as you will no doubt be aware, the transmission of information over the Internet cannot be completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the total security of your data transmission to our site; any such transmission is at your own risk. Such risks will be incurred in online contact with any other internet user. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures to try and prevent any unauthorised access.
7. Users aged 16 or under
If you are aged 16 or under, you must get your parent/guardian's permission before you provide any personal information to the Getting-in website. Users without consent should not provide us with personal information.
8. How long will Getting-in keep my personal information?
We will continue to hold your personal information on our systems for as long as is required to provide the relevant service.
If you contribute to the Getting-in website, the site will usually only keep your content for as long as is reasonably required for the purpose(s) for which it was submitted. For example, Getting-in will only keep copies of entries to a competition for as long as that competition runs. However, other projects might well have a longer, or even permanent, duration.
Statistics about visitor numbers, traffic patterns, answers to questions, content and related site information may be provided to reputable and reliable third parties. The information used for these purposes is aggregated (i.e. combined with other user data) and will remain anonymous and will include no identifiable personal details. We may retain data for historical statistical and research purposes. Where data is retained for these purposes, it is stored and processed appropriately in accordance with the Data Protection Act.
9. Can I find out what personal information Getting-in holds about me?
Under the Data Protection Act you have the right to ask about the personal information Getting-in holds about you and to have any inaccuracies corrected. (We may charge £10 for information requests and will require you to prove your identity with 2 pieces of approved identification).
11. Policy on Cookies - Information Getting-in collects from you
a. What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small amount of data, with a unique identifier, which is sent to your computer or mobile phone (referred to here as a "device") or browser from a website's computer and is stored on your device's hard drive. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser's preferences allow it, but, in order to protect your privacy, your browser only permits a website to gain access to the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites. Many sites do this whenever a user visits their website, in order to track online traffic flows.
Cookies record information about your online preferences and allow us to tailor the websites to your interests. This is designed to make the provision of information to you faster and more directly aimed at your interests and needs. You will have to decide for yourself whether you consider this an infringement of your privacy. Users have the opportunity to set their devices to accept all cookies, to notify them when a cookie is issued, or not to receive cookies at any time. The last of these means that certain personalised individual services cannot then be provided to that user and accordingly you may not be able to take full advantage of all of the Getting-in features. Each browser is different, so check the "Help" menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.
Information supplied by cookies can help us to discover the interests and needs of our visitors and help us to provide you with a more efficient user experience. For example: if on a previous visit you went to our education pages, we might detect this from your cookie and highlight educational information on your second and subsequent visits, perhaps saving you time and avoiding frustration.
PLEASE NOTE that all data used by Getting-in comes from from The Key Information Set (KIS) which is collected by the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) and also provides more detailed statistics and breakdowns at http://unistats.direct.gov.uk.
KIS information also includes information students have said they find most useful when making choices about which course to study, including measures of student satisfaction which have been taken from the National Student Survey (NSS), completed by more than 220,000 mainly final year students in the UK each year.
While Getting-in and Unistats make every effort to ensure that information contained in the database is accurate you should note that:
- All information is provided by universities, other higher education providers and students, and we cannot and do not undertake to check every item;
- We can offer no absolute guarantee of the accuracy of the Higher Education information and;
- Anything on this Website is for information purposes only and does not constitute legal or professional advice.

All copyright and other intellectual property rights in any material contained on the Unistats website are owned by HEFCE or its licensors.
IMPORTANT: Please note that any decisions you take based on the information contained in the Website are your own individual responsibility. To the extent permitted by law, we will not be liable to you for any loss or damage arising from your use of the Website.
Except as required by law, we shall not be liable for any indirect or incidental damages or loss of profits, goodwill, data or revenue, regardless of whether such losses or damages arise in the normal course of events or whether we have been advised of the possibility of such damages, and whether such losses or damages arise in contact or tort (including negligence) and for any reason.
Nothing in these terms shall operate to exclude or restrict our liability for death or personal injury caused by negligence.
