Appropriate use

At IU, Qualtrics use must align with Appropriate Use of Information Technology Resources (IT-01). Qualtrics is appropriate for use with sensitive institutional data classified as Critical, including data containing information protected by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) or the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA).


This UITS system or service meets certain requirements established in the HIPAA Security Rule thereby enabling its use for work involving data that contain protected health information (PHI). However, using this system or service does not fulfill your legal responsibilities for protecting the privacy and security of data that contain PHI. You may use this system or service for work involving data that contain PHI only if you institute additional administrative, physical, and technical safeguards that complement those UITS already has in place.
