If you believe that information about you contained in a Memorial University record is inaccurate, contact the office having custody and control of the record and request to have it corrected. You may be asked to provide proof of your identity and evidence that the information in the record is inaccurate.
If the informal approach is unsuccessful, you may file a formal request by completing a Correction of Personal Information Request application form and submitting it to firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 709-864-8753.
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 IAP Office at email@example.com. Our office will contact you regarding your complaint and work towards a resolution.
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 the ATIPPA, 2015 or other applicable privacy legislation. Examples of a privacy breach are personal information becoming lost or stolen and personal information mistakenly emailed to the wrong person.
