Recognizing the need to maintain individual and institutional rights to privacy and confidentiality and realizing that, as an agent of Valparaiso University, my assigned responsibilities will or may necessitate access to privileged information. Such confidential information may be verbal, on paper, contained in software, visible on screen displays, in computer readable form, or otherwise, and may include, but is not limited to, student records, medical/health, financial, employment, contractual, or institutional data.
I affirm my intention to preserve the strictest standards of confidentiality in the use of this information.
I understand the intent of this statement and will exercise diligence in performing my duties in accordance with institutional policies. Furthermore, I understand that Valparaiso University reserves the right to periodically audit my use of privileged information and to revoke my access if I am not adhering to all applicable policies. Any unwarranted and deliberate violations of the terms of this agreement will subject me to disciplinary action, including termination, legal actions, and/or criminal prosecution under appropriate state and federal laws.
I understand that this agreement does not alter my status as an at-will employee.
