Personal data is anything that can be used to identify an individual (including name & email). Once you draft the consent language for your form, please send it to privacy@lsu.edu for IT Security to review.

To add the consent language to a form:

  1. When you are within editing mode for the form, add an Instructional Text form element.
  2. Insert your consent language within the text box, then use the editor to link the "LSU Privacy Statement" text to the privacy page: https://www.lsu.edu/privacy/
  3. Beneath the Instructional Text form element, add a "Checkboxes" form element. Set it to have only one checkbox, and the text next to the checkbox to say "I Authorize". Set the element to be required.
