What We Collect

Personal Data

Additionally, each StarRez customer can configure a variety of additional fields. You have the right to access your personal data held by us and to request its correction or deletion.

The personal data collected from End Users may include, but is not limited to, name, email address, phone number, gender, date of birth, and identifiers such as student IDs. We act as a Data Processor under the relevant data protection legislations and work with our customers (who act as Data Controllers) to ensure compliance with data protection regulations. Any data protection issues concerning End Users can be raised with us and will be forwarded to the appropriate Data Controller for resolution.
