Use of Location Data
On the Use of Cornell Location Data
With rare and approved exceptions, as a matter of policy, Cornell does not use its data to track the location of individuals on campus. In instances of emergencies involving life and safety, where the need to find an individual at risk is urgent, the university may access individual location data in ways deemed appropriate by campus health or safety experts. In all cases, requests for such data use are first reviewed by the appropriate data stewards per university Policy 4.12 Data Stewardship and Custodianship.
