Farewell to OPAL

Bye bye OPAL.

The OPAL programme for learning languages will cease to exist as such. It started in 2002 and grew into the wonderful progamme we know. And we feel sorry for the number of students and staff who feel a bit sad at the moment. We can however remember all the wonderful presentations that have been given at the Centre and can browse a few OPAL posters and presentation on flickr

OPAL letter for Bob

It will be replaced, we hope, by something better. It will be the same wonderful and enthusiastic team of Language Tutors who will teach you in classes, whether during day time or early evening time. I hope you will be many to join us in the new academic year for more language learning!

Return your items please?

Dear Students,

Could you return all your items before you go on holiday?… Or before you leave Oxford for good — I wish you the best for your future by the way!

For those who return next year, please take into account that as usual we are doing an inventory this summer and it helps to have everything back for that. Also there are no vacation loans. Loans will continue to be 4 weeks for books and CDs and 2 weeks for DVDs.

I hope that’s all right, I wish you a very great summer, and make the most of our resources online on our website, where you can choose from… 200 languages!

Our social media and GDPR

Today, as you very well know I’m sure, the EU General Data Protection Regulation EU (2016)/679 (GDPR) comes into force in all EU Member States. The GDPR will later be adopted by the United Kingdom as the new Data Protection Act, which will replace the 1998 Act.

The GDPR requires that personal data must be processed lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner, and that all personal data be collected for specified and legitimate purposes. I therefore thought it would be appropriate to provide our followers with some explanations on how their personal data is handled on our social media platforms.

For those who follow the Oxford University Language Centre Blog, we collect email addresses which can include personal data (as it can have parts of your name or your full name as your email address). In addition some blog posts or comments may include personal data such as the names of guest blogger, people who organised or spoke at events, or people who made comments below posts. These posts can be shared at times on our other social media platforms.

All our social media are listed on the Link page of our blog

The Oxford University Language Centre Blog and all other Oxford University Language Centre social media platforms, respect your personal data and takes care to maintain its confidentiality. It does not share your data with third parties. We do at times record usage statistics but those do not take personal data into account.

You have the right, at any time, to:

If you would like any personal data which is included in blogposts, comments, tweets, photos (1) to be removed or have any questions about our data privacy policy on all our social media sites, please email librarian@lang.ox.ac.uk

(this post was largely inspired by the two recent posts from IPKAT blog and the 1709 blog)

(1) I believe all photos posted on our social media were so after a mutual agreement. However, should you feel you do not want to see a picture anymore, let us know!
