Data Privacy at Cornell 

The curation and use of data are integral to Cornell’s mission to discover, preserve, and disseminate knowledge, to educate the next generation of global citizens, and to promote a culture of broad inquiry throughout and beyond the Cornell community.  In furtherance of its mission, Cornell acquires information from those with whom it interacts, such as students, employees, visitors, etc.

Cornell has established governance and oversight policies to help ensure that the university maintains high ethical standards in the collection, storage, and use of personal data, that issues of bias and consent associated with data analysis and predictive analytics are carefully considered, and that consistent compliance with relevant international, federal, and state laws is maintained. Cornell strives to honor the EU-U.S. Data Privacy Framework: Notice, Choice, Accountability for Onward Transfer, Security, Data Integrity and Purpose Limitation, Access, and Recourse.
