About the privacy of LinkedIn Learning

By default, you will remain anonymous when accessing LinkedIn Learning as a UBC student. Alternatively, you will have the option to login and connect your LinkedIn profile which will allow you to store any courses, certificates, or badges you complete on LinkedIn Learning to your LinkedIn profile.

If you choose to link your personal LinkedIn profile, you are consenting to share information with LinkedIn Learning and your personal information may be stored in a cloud system outside of Canada. The personal information collected may include but is not limited to name, email address, resume details, past work experiences, current work positions, educational background, and other aspects of your professional or career profile. Most profile information is optional and as a user, you can choose what information you would like to submit to the system. This additional information will not be visible to UBC.

UBC will not share your personal information with others, but may share your contact information with UBC departments or units who wish to contact you about your engagement with the University. UBC LinkedIn Administrators will also collect aggregated data for basic analytics about the use of LinkedIn Learning to expand or develop our service to users. UBC collects such information based under the authority of Section 26c of the Province of British Columbia’s Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act.

Terms of Use

All users of LinkedIn Learning are expected to act in ways consistent with UBC policies, particularly Information Systems Policy SC14 and Discrimination Policy SC7.

LinkedIn Learning is also subject to UBC’s Respectful Environment Statement and UBC LinkedIn Administrators reserve the right to remove content that violates this statement, and to delete users who have posted this content. 

Before using the service, if you have any concerns or have any questions related to LinkedIn Learning, please contact csic.support@ubc.ca.
