Per sec 3 (g) of RA 10173 (Data Privacy Act of 2012), Personal information refers to any
information whether recorded in a material form or not, from which the identity of an individual is
apparent or can be reasonably and directly ascertained by the entity holding the information, or
when put together with other information would directly and certainly identify an individual.
Pursuant thereto, information collected by the University which includes but are not limited
addresses, telephone numbers, originating school, names of parents are likewise deemed as
personal information, thus confidential and considered as privileged communication.
The institution therefore guaranties that the information processed and collected are
protected and safeguarded in accordance with Chapter V, Section 20 of RA 10173.
