Bringing online applications to your school district in a privacy respective manner

Bringing online applications to your school district in a privacy respective manner

Do you do technical work for a school district? Have you wondered what the requirements are under BC’s Freedom of
Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA) when it comes to using online applications in BC schools?
This workshop will walk through the prescribed requirements under BC’s public sector privacy law for accessing or
storing information outside of Canada. We will discuss local storage versus storage outside of Canada, voluntary
consent, the legislative requirements for what must be in a consent form from students who consent to the storage or
access to their personal information outside of Canada, who must consent under BC law, and how first and third party
personal information can be addressed. This is a great opportunity for you to ask questions about BC’s privacy laws
and to determine how your district can bring online educational applications into your school in a privacy respective
manner.
