We may use the information you provide in this report for the purpose of:

  1. Helping us to identify the best member of staff for you to speak to in relation to your report;
  2. Providing our member of staff with your contact details (where appropriate) and background information that will enable them to understand the nature of your concern or the incident you are reporting; and
  3. Review your report and taking further action if required. For example, an investigation that could lead to us carrying out disciplinary action in line with the procedures set out in our Non-academic Misconduct Policy

Please note that the University of Buckingham will not be able to take steps such as investigating your concern or complaint, initiating an internal disciplinary action or passing information to third parties, if you make an anonymous report.
