Terms & Conditions of Use
Your Manchester Online is a service provided free of charge for University of Manchester alumni. All potential users will be verified against our current records during the registration process, before being granted full access to the site. The University of Manchester reserves the right to refuse access to anyone who misuses the site in any way including those listed below, and to delete frivolous updates to individual profiles.
Your Manchester Online includes a searchable online alumni directory. You can be included in the directory by making all or some of your details public on the `Update your profile' page. If you do not choose to make your name publicly available you will not appear in the directory. However, at some point the University of Manchester may choose to show all graduates' names, year of graduation and subject of study in the directory. In this event, users will be able to opt out of appearing in the directory.
You can choose to make your contact details available to other alumni, and they to you. Please treat this information with respect. Anyone found to be contacting alumni for any purpose other than friendship and/or networking within the alumni community, i.e. spam, junk mail, tracing family members for yourself or others or soliciting business, will be removed from the site and their access terminated.

By registering with this site, you agree to the University contacting you about new developments and news about Your Manchester Online, details of alumni activities and programmes involving academic and administrative departments, fundraising programmes and for the promotion of benefits and services including affinity products.
