Everyone is Responsible for Protecting Confidential Information

Acadia employees are required to sign a confidentiality agreement when hired by Acadia. The text of this agreement is below. 

Acadia University places a high level of responsibility and trust in its employees with regards to the handling of information. In the course of executing your duties, you have access to confidential information, including, but not limited to, student, alumni, employee and research data, located on servers, cloud services, desktop and laptop computers, and other storage devices.

With respect to this information, and all other confidential and proprietary Acadia University information and data, I agree to the following:

  1. I acknowledge the confidentiality of all information and data I come into contact with while executing my duties. I agree that this information will not be revealed or distributed or discussed with anyone, other than as required to execute my duties, unless required by law.
  2. I will not attempt to alter, change, modify, add, or delete any information or documents unless doing so is part of my assigned job duties.
  3. I will access only the information necessary to execute my duties, and only at the times required to execute my duties. If I am unclear about the need to access information, I will seek the approval of an appropriate, designated supervisor.
  4. I understand that failure to abide fully by the above agreement is grounds for immediate discipline, up to and including termination of employment. Acadia University reserves the right to perform access audits of all systems periodically and without prior notification.
