How Colleges Use Your Personal Info

National and European Data Protection law, including the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), give you a whole host of rights that aim to ensure your personal data is used only how it should be. As part of your registration for disability supports in college, you will be required to provide evidence of your disability and sometimes, information about the impact of your disability may need to be shared with staff involved in the provision of supports. 

This video below produced by AHEAD and the Disability Advisors Working Network (DAWN), outlines your rights and describes how colleges collect and process your data as well as who they might share it with and why.
