Privacy Protection

Safeguarding Personal information

Privacy is a set of fair information practices intended to ensure that the uses of personal information (personally identifiable information, or PII) are known, authorized and appropriate and that reasonable and prudent measures are taken to protect that information.

Each UCAR employee has a responsibility to exercise reasonable and prudent efforts to safeguard the privacy, confidentiality and security of the Personal Contact Data, sensitive personal information (SPI) and the Employment Records of our current and former employees.

Are your efforts to safeguard the PII (SPI, in particular) of other employees “reasonable and prudent?” Each lab, program and administrator should audit and evaluate their PII access, collection, authorization, use, storage, transfer and disposal practices to ensure that they reasonably and appropriately protect the confidentiality and security of the information.
