When students, faculty, and staff log into EBSCO databases, they may encounter a consent screen titled "Personal Data Retention and Usage."

This screen is referring to the data retention needed to create and maintain a personal 'My EBSCOhost folder' where you can save articles, searches, and citations for easy referral later on.

EBSCO does NOT share personal information/searches/saved articles with third parties. Nor would the Rasmussen College Online Library condone the breach of user privacy.

If you opt to not consent to this policy, you will not be able to use the EBSCO databases for research purposes.

For more information about EBSCO's privacy policy and security, please see their FAQ here:
