Privacy notice for recording sessions

 Please ensure students are aware the session is to be recorded, and that they have the option to ‘opt out’ and turn off their cameras if they wish. Please also refer students to our privacy notice, which can be found here.

The IGU have highlighted the specific part of this notice that is relevant to the recording of sessions:
