Sharing personal information

Who will my personal information be shared with?

Your personal information as described above is shared with staff at the Isaac Newton Trust, and, where necessary, with Trustees and their academic advisors

In addition, it is shared as permitted or required by law, on a considered and confidential basis, with:

  • The University of Cambridge and the Cambridge colleges (please note that the University and each of the colleges are separate legal entities for these purposes);
  • External bodies co-funding your award (e.g. the Leverhulme Trust);
  • The auditors of the Isaac Newton Trust;
  • Academic referees nominated by the applicant’s department or faculty;
  • Subsidiary companies of the University, such as Cambridge Enterprise, where necessary for the management of an award.

Sharing of information outside the European Economic Area occurs only when an academic referee is located outside the EEA. Such transfers are carried out with appropriate safeguards in place to ensure the confidentiality and security of your personal information.

How is my personal information used in publicity?

In the case of successful applicants, basic information (applicant’s name, department/faculty or college, name(s) of funded postdoctoral workers, amount of award) will be published on the Trust’s website and in our Annual Reports

You may opt out of this at any time by contacting us


Other than as set out above, we will not normally disclose any personal information about you to other external enquirers or organisations unless you have requested it or explicitly consented to it.
