We’ve been made aware of an email received by some students from a company called uniyearbook.com.
Please be aware that this company is not affiliated with the University – it is an independent organisation selling a product. They do state this within the email text but in very small type at the bottom of the message.
We have looked at the volume of information they are requiring to register with them and would like to make students aware that we would not usually recommend that you divulge so many private details to a company e.g. your mobile phone number, private email address, university email address.
It is entirely up to you as individuals whether you want to buy this product but we would caution you to think carefully about giving away too much information.
