GDPR Compliance Content that Everyone Can Understand from University of St. Francis
Earlier in the year Campus Technology magazine tried to get feedback for a May article from 5 universities that had “GDPR working groups” to find out how things were going re compliance with GDPR regulations from the European Union. The magazine had no luck. “Two did not respond to requests and the other three declined to be interviewed about their efforts.”
Why was that? There has been much proverbial weeping and gnashing of teeth, especially in the marketing world, over changes required to become GDPR compliant. And yes, the regulations are long and detailed and may not be completely clear for some time yet. That said, creating effective compliance content that normal human beings can understand is not impossible.
And thus today’s Link of the Week from University of St. Francis.
Key content headings are easy to scan, including:
- Who We Are and What this Policy Covers
- Information We Collect
- Information You Provide to Us
- Information We Collect Automatically
- Information We Collect from Other Sources
- How We Use Information
- How We Share Information
- The European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
Other points to note:
- The university has appointed a Data Protection Officer, the Vice President for Operations and Information Technology. His email is included for people to contact “with any questions or concerns regarding GDPR.”
- The university promises to notify people within 72 hours if there is a data breach.
- A consent page for EU citizens is provided: “If you are an EU citizen and wish to provide or withdraw consent for USF to process your personal information, please submit the GDPR consent form.” An active link to the consent page was missing when I last visited but you can visit the consent page here.
