How Concordia protects your privacy

When evaluating cloud service platforms for potential use by the Concordia community, IITS performs Privacy Impact Assessments (PIA).

Objectives include:

  • Identification of the types of personal data that individuals must provide about themselves to the vendor in order to use a service
  • Identification of what data individuals inadvertently share about themselves while using a service
  • Identification of what personal data users will be invited to optionally share in order to take advantage of features of a service
  • Evaluation of the data retention policies of a service provider
  • Review of the locations where data is stored (e.g., whether servers are located in Canada or elsewhere)
  • Evaluation of the security, encryption and data protection features of a service provider
  • Assessment of the type of data a service provider shares with third parties
