Summary: UNDERTAKING REGARDING
As an employee of Queen's University, I may have access to information about University staff,
faculty and students that is of a personal and confidential nature, for example, names,
addresses, e-mail addresses, salaries and academic and employment histories. Such access
may be gained only with appropriate authorization and be used only for the purposes for which
access was granted. All personal and confidential information must be protected to ensure
maintenance of full confidentiality.
I may also have access to information, which is proprietary and confidential, for example,
research data and results.
At all times, in both professional and social situations, I am required to maintain the absolute
confidentiality of confidential information in recognition of the privacy and proprietary rights of
others. Any questions about whether information to which I have access is confidential should
be directed to my supervisor.
I understand that a breach of confidentiality could result in disciplinary action up to and including
dismissal from Queen's University.
I understand this Undertaking survives the termination of my employment at Queen's University
and may be enforced in the courts.
Please sign the Undertaking below to indicate that you have read this information about
confidentiality and are prepared to abide by this Undertaking.
