European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Privacy Notice

If you are located in the EU, then our processing of your personal information may fall under Regulation 2016/679 (the General Data Protection Regulation, or the “GDPR”). The GDPR webpage contains additional information and resources.


GDPR provides broad privacy protections to individuals physically located in the European Union European Economic Area (data subject(s)). Under certain circumstances, GDPR may apply to University of Toledo Foundation’s activities in the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA) (e.g., when a student attends a study abroad program or when a faculty member is temporarily working in the EU/EEA).

GDPR explicitly confers numerous rights upon data subjects located in the EU, and requires covered organizations to put significant safeguards in place regarding the use and processing of personal data of EU subjects. Personal data is defined very broadly under GDPR, and consists of any information relating to an identified or identifiable person and includes a person’s name, identification number, location data, online identifier, or to one or more factors specific to the physical, psychological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that person.

The University of Toledo Foundation must comply with the regulation and ensure that personal data is:

  • Processed lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner;
  • Collected for specific, explicit and legitimate purposes and not further processed in a manner that is incompatible with those purposes;
  • Limited to what is necessary in relation to the purposes for which they are processed;
  • Accurate and kept up to date;
  • Retained only as long as necessary; and
  • Secure.
