Information & Facts
Information Privacy at the University of Florida
This notice provides highlights of the full University of Florida Information Privacy Statement. This notice and the full privacy statement apply to any and all parts of the University of Florida where Personally Identifiable Information (PII) in any format is created, received, maintained, and transmitted.
Personal Information Collected
Our policy is to collect no PII about you unless you affirmatively choose to make such information available to us. Once you make such information available to UF, you become a “user” of our multiple information systems. Although the University makes every effort to secure its information systems, total confidentiality and security cannot be guaranteed. Should a breach become known, you will be notified promptly.
Uses and Sharing
The University of Florida does not share the personal information gathered from users for any purposes other than to respond to the specific requests of the users. However, because the University of Florida is a public state institution, some information, including information collected from forms, e-mails sent to our web sites, and certain records may be subject to the Florida Public Records Law (S.119.07, FS). This means that in some cases we may be compelled to release information subject to the Public Records Law without the user’s authorization.
Email Addresses and Public Records Requests S668.6076, F.S. requires the University of Florida to post the following notice:
Under Florida law, email addresses are public records. If you do not want your email address released in response to a public records request, do not send electronic mail to the University. Instead, contact the specific office or individual by phone or in writing.
