The College recognizes that privacy and maintaining dignity and control of personal information is particularly important to those who have experienced sexual violence or misconduct. 

The College will make every reasonable effort to maintain the confidentiality of all persons involved in any process under this policy. The College may share a limited amount of information only where it is required by law or to ensure all procedures are conducted fairly. For instance, the College cannot ensure confidentiality in the following circumstances:

  • When a person is at imminent risk of self-harm.
  • When a person is at imminent risk of harming another.
  • When it is reasonable to believe that others in the College or wider community may be at risk of harm.
  • Where there is a legal duty to report or disclose.

It is also important to note that confidentiality is not the same as anonymity
