UW Privacy Office

Privacy by Design

Privacy by Design promotes the integration of the UW privacy principles throughout the information lifecycle: from collection to creation to disclosure or destruction. As UW units develop new tools, systems, and services, Privacy by Design encourages them to understand humanitarian, ethical, and legal obligations when it comes to individuals’ privacy.

We continuously collaborate with our colleagues across the UW to develop, revamp and/or enhance resources to help balance privacy risk and establish coherency with UW privacy principles.
