UW Privacy Office

Together We Will

When we engage in our academic, research, health care, and business activities as part of our public promise, it is vital that we each understand the philosophical, social, technological, and legal concepts that relate to individuals’ privacy.

The definition and perception of privacy vary based on an individual’s geographic region, culture, generations, or past experiences – what one person is comfortable sharing may make others uncomfortable. We respect and protect the individuals we serve by ensuring their data are collected, shared, and used appropriately. Our innovative efforts in teaching, research, and service compel us to think about how our use of personal data impacts individuals’ privacy and well-being.
