The communications you may expect are:
• Postal and e-communications to update you on developments at NCAT and further our relationship
• Invitations to corporate and (where appropriate) donor events
• Graduate destination surveys to support Aviation backed initiative

For example, if you provide us with new contact details or change your details on websites managed by NCAT or social media sites such as LinkedIn we may update your personal details accordingly. We may also update your record for administrative purposes such as attending an event, recording donations or registering complaints.
