Why is this Important:
Institutions of higher education might have other obligations regarding use of data under federal, state, or local laws, regulations, or contractual obligations. Generally speaking, an institution may not be able to alleviate such obligations by contracting with a third party to perform functions that use regulated data. Clauses that include instructions to contracting third parties regarding regulatory requirements help to protect the institution in the event of an unauthorized disclosure or breach.

The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) (Pub. L. No. 106-102 (1999), privacy protections are codified at 15 USC § 6801 et seq.).
