Protecting the confidentiality of shared personal data
Some sections of the e-Portal and some categories of the e-services require entering personal data such as addresses and contact numbers. The Ministry of Education (MOE) believes in citizens’ personal data privacy and, accordingly, pledges to respect such privacy and confidentiality in the handling, sharing, and processing of such data via the various electronic channels, always and under all circumstances and conditions. To safeguard the privacy and protect the confidentiality of personal data, the MOE undertakes to make sure that permission for accessing, sharing, handling, and transferring such personal data is given only to the individuals who are duly authorized to process the data mentioned above.
In this respect, the MOE will assure granting the appropriate authority to personal data users applying the best and most appropriate standards and methods of protection and encryption of electronically shared data to avoid any contingent or unlawful/illegitimate incidents and risks leading to the destruction, loss, tampering, or disclosure of personal data.
Assuring the accuracy of personal data
The Ministry of Education may need to correct or delete some personal data entered online via electronic channels when such data may prove inaccurate or unnecessary. Moreover, MOE may sometimes be necessary to conduct periodic updates and verifications for essential personal data. When it is necessary to correct or delete some personal data, the MOE undertakes to notify all stakeholders, including owners of the personal data themselves or government agencies serving such beneficiaries, with such corrections or deletions.
Quality of Personal Data
The Ministry of Education seeks to assure the quality and accuracy of collected and processed personal data. It also seeks to make sure that the process of collecting such data is relevant to the service for which the data has been collected.
