Carleton University is committed to protecting the privacy of those who study or work here (currently and formerly). To that end, Carleton’s Privacy Office seeks to encourage the implementation of the privacy provisions of Ontario’s Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act within the university.
The collection, storage, utilisation, and dissemination of Personal Information concerning members of the Carleton community is only undertaken as part of ongoing efforts by the University to ensure decision making practices are based on accurate information. The university also ensures that the information gathered for one purpose is not being used inappropriately for another, and that the privacy of an individual is not compromised by disclosure of personal information to third parties without the proper approvals.
The information found on these pages explains how Carleton University provides access to information and protects the privacy of our constituency within the context of Ontario’s Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act so that it can continue to be accountable and transparent to both the public and the University community.
