Who Owns the Information?
As a University Employee,
Who Owns the Information You Create?
This might seem obvious, but there are a few things you need to know.
- As an employee of the University, any information you create or receive during your employment that has anything to do with University business belongs to the Regents. Whether it is information stored on your computer, paper files, voice messages, portable media, home laptop, etc. -- it is Regential property and needs to be created and managed according to policy.
- Any personal information you may accumulate during your employment is yours. To respect this, whenever you move to another department or leave the University, you should collect or transfer your personal information.
- Once you have done so, the University will access the remaining information in order to keep departmental responsibilities moving forward.
