DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION
Student records. Student records are protected by the federal Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), Arizona law and university policy. Information about student access to education records and protection of education records is available in SSM 107-01 (Release of Student Information). That policy also provides information on a student’s right to limit access to otherwise public directory information. Chat rooms, forums, message boards and news groups. ASU does not routinely retain logs or copies of chat rooms, forums, message boards or news groups available to its users. Information disclosed in these areas is public, however. Academic chat rooms and discussions conducted in connection with ASU classes may be logged but may be treated as confidential educational records under FERPA. Public records law. Under the Arizona Public Records Law, ASU may be required to provide information in ASU records to a third party. Commercial users may purchase public record information, such as non-confidential lists of students and employees. Confidential information protected by FERPA or by other laws or Board policy will not be disclosed in response to a public records request. Contractors. From time to time, individuals or companies under contract with ASU may have access to confidential information in the course of the service they provide to ASU relating to this Website, but those entities are not permitted to use or re-disclose that information for unauthorized purposes.
