Privacy and confidentiality
UTS respects the privacy of each person it deals with, including students, and UTS also has legal obligations to protect people’s privacy.
UTS needs to collect and use personal information about you to administer our student-related programs and activities.
Personal information may also be collected via other means, such as CCTV cameras and through use of IT facilities, lockers and desk drawers. For information about methods used and their purpose, see your privacy: surveillance.
In collecting and using personal information, UTS will only:
- collect personal information which is necessary
- use that information for the purpose it was collected for, and seek permission from you if we’d like to use your information for another purpose
- share your personal information with another organisation where we have received consent from you or we have a legal obligation to do so.
You have a right to access personal information we hold about you, and to amend and update it if required.
The UTS Student Declaration explains the various ways that UTS will use and disclose information about you. We recommend that you take the time to read and understand it.
For more detailed information about how UTS manages your privacy and protects your personal information, see your privacy at UTS.
Your right and responsibilities covers other ways that UTS protects your rights as a student.
