The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a legal framework that sets guidelines for the collection and processing of personal information of individuals within the European Union (EU). The EU put these guidelines into effect on May 25, 2018 to replace and enhance previous legislation that regulated privacy. The GDPR affords individuals certain rights as to how their data is used and processed, and may give them rights to access, correct, or delete their data. The GDPR may apply to some personal information held by the University because, in some circumstances, we engage in activities that collect or process the personal data of individuals residing in the EU, such as EU resident applicants and students, or students studying abroad in the EU.
All UCM students will review the GDPR Consent Form prior to enrollment in their next semester. All UCM faculty and staff will review this information every fall semester in MyCentral.
Learn more about the GDPR on the European Commission website.
