Tidewater Community College is committed to protecting individual privacy and to ensuring the confidentiality of personally identifiable information provided by its employees, students, and visitors.
To that end, TCC has developed and promulgated the Information Privacy Statement appearing on the college’s website.
This policy sets forth Tidewater Community College’s position regarding the protection of individual privacy and the confidentiality of personally identifiable information provided by its employees, students, and visitors, whether that information is provided in an electronic or physical form.
The Government Data Collection and Dissemination Practices Act (Code of Virginia § 2.2-3800 et seq.) requires that "Any agency holding personal information shall assure its reliability and take precautions to prevent its misuse." This provision does not distinguish between information maintained in electronic or physical form—i.e., digital/computer-stored or paper records. Other state and federal laws and regulations govern specific types of personal information.
