Student privacy

It is our responsibility to be aware when we are asking students to use web resources or enter personal information stored on servers outside of Canada.

"We need to be particularly careful about educational technologies which store and/or access information outside of Canada; these educational technologies are not always bound by Canadian law. In some cases, this can mean that foreign governments or persons may have access to students’ personal information. BC’s Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA) limits this risk by prohibiting universities from requiring that students’ personal information be stored or accessed on servers outside of Canada. Privacy legislation means that you are required to protect student information, including knowing if such information is stored outside of Canada."
