Request for Correction of Personal Information

Informal Approach

If you believe that information about you contained in a Memorial University record is inaccurate, contact the office having custody of the record and request to have it corrected. You may be asked to provide proof of your identity and that the information is inaccurate.

Formal Approach

If the informal approach (above) is unsuccessful, you may file a formal Request for Correction of Personal Information by completing a Correction of Personal Information Request application form and submitting it to the ATIPP Analyst in the IAPP office, by email at jwoodland@mun.ca or telephone 864-7949. Please note that all ATIPP requests must be accompanied by the $5 application processing fee.
For further information please see the FAQ section or contact the ATIPP Analyst.


Privacy Complaint Form

If you believe that your personal information has been breached in any way, please fill out a Privacy Complaint Form and send it to the IAPP Office at ewright@mun.ca. Our office will contact you regarding your complaint and work towards a resolution.


Privacy Breach Reporting

A privacy breach occurs when there is unauthorized access to or collection, use, disclosure or disposal of personal information. Such activity is "unauthorized" if it occurs in contravention of Part IV of ATIPPA or, if applicable, a relevant provision of PIPEDA. An example of a privacy breach would be personal information becoming lost or stolen or personal information being mistakenly emailed to the wrong person.

The Privacy Policy has several procedures, including the procedure for Managing a Privacy Breach. The Privacy Policy can be found on Memorial University's Policy and Procedures website. For the convenience of Memorial employees, the procedure for Managing a Privacy Breach has been converted to pdf.

It is our duty as Memorial University employees to report privacy breaches.  To report a breach, contact:
