Oregon State University recognizes that the growth of on-line services, including Internet services, has created additional privacy concerns, particularly for its constituents.
On-line privacy concerns focus on the protection of "person identifiable" information, which an individual reasonably expects to be kept private. As the term suggests, "person identifiable" information is information which can be associated with a specific individual or entity, including, for example, a person's name, address or telephone number, e-mail address, and information about online activities that are directly linked to them.
