The European Union’s (EU) General Data Protection Regulation is a privacy law intended primarily to protect personal data rights. It is designed to give individuals in the EU control over how their data are processed and used. Although it is an EU law, the GDPR may apply to Brock University and other public institutions in certain limited circumstances.
The GDPR purports by its terms to apply internationally when offering of goods or services to EU residents, or when monitoring the behaviour of an EU resident. Since Brock University has various international operations and communications, it is possible that the EU government may consider the GDPR to apply to Brock in some cases. For questions about the collection and processing of personal information under the GDPR, contact the designated Data Protection Officer, as follows:
