All ALS staff are bound by law and professional ethics to safeguard your privacy and the confidentiality of your personal information. We collect and use only the information that is necessary for the provision of services. For more information on how we collect, use and share information within the Student Wellness and Accessibility Centre, please refer to the STUDENT WELLNESS AND ACCESSIBILITY CENTRE (SWAC) CONFIDENTIALITY FORM.
We share some of your personal information outside of SWAC, as follows:
Testing Services: In order to facilitate seamless academic accommodations, ALS will share the nature of your academic accommodations with Testing Services. ALS will only share the information that is relevant to implementing your accommodations and will not disclose the nature of your disability unless you consent. Testing Services also maintains strict levels of confidentiality.
Reporting: ALS is required to provide statistical information to the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development and for internal reporting purposes. In order to comply with these reporting requirements, on occasion we need to work with staff members outside of ALS to help us prepare our statistical reports (such as Information Technology staff). These staff may have access to some of your personal information for a short period of time. Any published or released reports will only include group information (not personal information).
Quality Control Audit: ALS files are subject to quality control audits conducted by the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development. If your file is audited, ALS will limit the disclosure to only that information which is relevant.
By signing this form you are consenting to these limited disclosures.
