Texas Southern University recognizes the concerns of individuals regarding privacy and online data collection. We strive to respect and protect the privacy expectations of our students, parents, employees, and website visitors.

Data privacy refers to the practice of handling personal information with the utmost care to ensure its confidentiality, integrity, and availability. It involves the processes and policies that govern how data is collected, stored, shared, and utilized, aiming to protect individuals' sensitive information from unauthorized access and breaches.

Data privacy is crucial because it prevents misuse of your information, which can lead to identity theft, financial loss, and unauthorized access to your records. Being aware of data privacy practices helps you protect yourself and keeps your academic journey secure.

Universities play a significant role in protecting your data. We implement policies and procedures to ensure your information is handled responsibly. Complying with data privacy laws, such as FERPA (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act), helps protect your rights and maintain a safe learning environment.
