The Library follows these principles in collecting and utilizing personal information:
- Information is collected only as allowed by law.
- Information collected is used to conduct normal business in the daily operation of the library and the university. For example, we need a name, address and phone number in order to contact a patron concerning overdue books, holds, billing, etc. An e-mail address may be given for notification.
- The purpose of the information we collect is disclosed. For example, to assist the campus in the issuance of bills for library materials.
- A patron has the right to review the information in his or her library record.
- Information safeguards are used. Staff are trained in the procedures for release of information and access to records is limited to those staff whose work requires it.
- For additional information regarding your privacy and the library, please visit the UC Library policy or contact Ann Frenkel by phone at (951) 827-3221 or e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The University Library limits the collection of personal information to what is relevant and necessary in order to conduct business. The information in a personal record is considered to be confidential and the Library will not release this information to anyone, unless by order of the court or through a search warrant. This policy is for an individual's protection and in accordance with the Federal Privacy Act, FERPA (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act), the constitution of the State of California, the State of California Information Practices Act of 1977 and other applicable Federal and State law.
