Indiana University Libraries' Commitment to Our Users' Rights of Privacy and Confidentiality This privacy policy explains our users' privacy and confidentiality rights, the steps the IU Libraries take to respect and protect privacy, and how we deal with personally identifiable information that we may collect from our users. 1. Notice & Openness The IU Libraries affirm that our library users have the right of "notice" -- to be informed about the policies governing the amount and retention of personally identifiable information, and about why that information is necessary for the provision of library services. The IU Libraries post publicly and acknowledge openly the privacy and information-gathering policies of the IU Libraries. Whenever policies change, notice of those changes is made publicly available. In all cases involving personally identifiable information, it is our policy to avoid creating unnecessary records to avoid retaining records not needed for the fulfillment of the mission of the library and to avoid engaging in practices that might place sensitive information on public view.
