Data processing agreement

When the University employs a third party to provide a service on its behalf (for example, a mailing company or a software provider) that involves the disclosure of personal data as part of the service, the University must have a written contract (data processing agreement) in place to ensure that such personal data is appropriately protected. 

The University's template data processing agreement is available here:
