Updates to the EBSCO Personalization Features

Wednesday, May 16, 2018

In an effort to protect the security and privacy of users, EBSCO is actively implementing a program to ensure full compliance with the enhanced European Union data protection legislation, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).  Upgrades include:

  • Implementing tools to enforce the use of strong passwords
  • Transitioning all platforms to HTTPS for secure data transfer
  • Providing privacy controls for end users

This last bullet will begin on or after May 15, 2018.  Users of MyEBSCOhost folders will be asked to review and accept EBSCO's Privacy Policy in order to continue using the service.  Once the Privacy Policy has been accepted, users will have the ability to view the data associated with their account and the option to remove the account at any time.  

For additional information on these changes, see EBSCO's Upcoming Privacy and Security Enhancements and don't hesitate to Contact BadgerLink!
