Just got this e-mail:
This message is being sent to notify you of a breach of privacy relating to your personal information, contrary to the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act. On January 16, 2018, I became aware that an employee of the law school had attached a file containing applicant data, in error, to a notice posted on the University of Windsor’s online learning management system. Within 15 minutes the employee discovered the error and removed the file from the notice. During the time that the file was available, it was accessed by 36 law students.
The information contained in the file was a summary of applicant data and included your name, address, program, Student Number, OUAC number, gender, birthdate (if provided), LSAC number, decisions (where available), LSAT score, GPA, admit value, and Aboriginal status.
In addition to ensuring that the file is no longer available on line, we have reached out to the law students who had access to the file to ensure that this breach of personal information is contained and the file deleted. The University has also informed the Information and Privacy Commissioner of Ontario of this breach.
The Faculty of Law and the University of Windsor take our responsibilities to protect student and applicant data very seriously. The Faculty of Law will review its policies around handling student and applicant data and provide additional training to support staff to help ensure that this kind of error does not occur in the future.
On behalf of the University of Windsor, Faculty of Law I would like to express my sincere regret for the breach.
If you would like to discuss this matter or if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at [email protected]
or Francine Herlehy, Assistant Dean (Student Services) at [email protected]
