As we all know, FIPPA requires that all information about our students remain in Canada, unless there is consent. The Commissioner’s office has indicated that if use of the tool is required for a course, consent cannot be deemed to have been given. Students must be given an option to use an alias.
Please note that use of an alias often requires a negotiation with the service, since most EULAs (end-user license agreements) prohibit their use. This negotiation should be completed centrally, by emailing PIA.PROCESS@ubc.ca. This body will ensure the PIA (Privacy Impact Assessment) is completed and that legal counsel has signed off on the revised language).
