Data Protection Laws

Other Countries’ Data Privacy and Security Regulation

Yale faculty and personnel conducting business, educational, or research activities outside of the United States should inquire as to the applicability of local laws in the country where the work is located.

Certain non-EU countries (e.g., Argentina, Canada) have followed the EU model and have created comprehensive laws regarding data privacy and security that may affect Yale research or activities in those countries.  Even in countries with less stringent regimes (e.g., Australia, Brazil, Israel, Russia), there may be data privacy and security requirements that Yale personnel must be aware of before collecting, storing, transferring or disseminating personal information.

It is important to note that in certain cases, compliance with both U.S. and host-country laws may be required.
