|40)||In the conciliation, complaint investigation and appeal processes, every reasonable effort shall be made to ensure confidentiality and to protect the privacy of all parties in accordance with existing University policies and applicable laws.
|41)||In the conciliation, complaint investigation and appeal processes, files pertaining to a case shall be kept confidential. However, if there is a criminal investigation or criminal proceedings in court, the University may need to provide necessary information contained in the files. The University may also need to disclose some information to third parties (e.g. in reporting a crime) when there is clearly a risk that the harassing behaviour has created or will create significant harm to the complainant or other persons and where the University needs to intervene because of its own potential liability for failing to do so.
Records may be made available to University officials in accordance with and to the extent required by University rules, regulations or policy or by law.
