Policy on the use of student data on course webpages.
The University Records Management polices state that publishing anything that can identify a student, including just their matric number, on an unrestricted webpage without permission is not permitted.
In order to comply with this, staff should first consider if there is a genuine need to provide information in a form that could identify individual students. If this is required, the following points should also be considered:
It is the responsibility of the course lecturer(s) to remove any personal information they publish and to ensure anything added by a TA or a student is also dealt with appropriately.
