Privacy Policy

SOUL is committed to protecting your privacy as a critical component of your intellectual and academic freedom in our university. Your guarantee of privacy is supported by law, and by the privacy policy of the O6U and its campus. The University Library limits the collection of personal information to what is relevant and necessary to conduct library business, e.g. your name, university identification, and items borrowed. We retain that information only as long as it is needed to complete transactions or provide service. Information in a personal library record is considered confidential and will not be released by the Library to a third party.

While the library makes every effort to negotiate the protection of user information in licensing agreements with outside database vendors, the University does not govern the privacy practices of those vendors. Users, therefore, should read the privacy statement on each website to determine these practices
