The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a set of standards for organizations that process personal information for individuals residing in the European Union (EU). GDPR took effect May 25, 2018 and affects organizations worldwide, including colleges.

If you are a citizen or currently residing in the EU, or a non-EU citizen residing in an EU member state, the GDPR standards protect you and your data.

Please note: The "Right to be Forgotten" is not universal. It only applies to EU residents and non-EU citizens living in an EU member state. Units that collect personal information do not need consent for all collection and use. Contractural obligations and legitimate business interests do not require consent under GDPR.
