A "Personal Information System" is defined as any manual (paper-based) or automated (computer-based) recordkeeping process that contains personal information or other identifying particulars of a data subject.
For the purposes of this survey ONLY, "Personal Information" is defined as:
- First name (or first initial) and last name in combination with:
- Social Security Number;
- Driver's license number or Hawaii identification number;
- or Account number, credit or debit card number, access code, or password that would permit access to an individual's financial account.
The University is required by law to submit an annual report to the Hawaii Information Privacy and Security Council on the existence and character of each personal information system within the University and attached/affiliated agencies pursuant to Hawaii State Revised Statutes (HRS 487N-7).
Note that all personal and other sensitive information must be protected in accordance with UH Executive Policy E2.214: Protection of Sensitive Information.
