McGill's is committed to protecting your privacy and ensuring that your personal information is handled in a safe and responsible way. This policy outlines how we aim to achieve this and includes the information collected when you email us your student card.

What type of information is collected from you?

To qualify for our student m-tickets, you are asked to email us a picture of your valid student card, issued by your college or university. We collect this so we can verify you are eligible to access our student tickets.

How is your information used?

Our use of your personal data will always be used in a lawful basis, either because it is necessary to complete your verification or because it is in our legitimate interests. 

Once we have verified you, we will then delete your email and student card image. 

Who has access to your information?

We will not sell, distribute or lease your personal information to third parties. Any personal information we request from you will be safeguarded under current legislation. 

How and where do we store data?

We only keep your personal data for as long as we need in order to use it as described in this privacy policy, and we will delete the information provided as soon as we have used it to verify each person.
