1. Audits. The policy must have a description of the intended protocols for independent
audit and oversight to ensure compliance. The protocol shall: 1) list the methods for
storing recorded information, including how the data is to be secured, segregated, labeled
or indexed. Such methods must allow for independent third-party auditors to readily
search and locate specific data that is collected and determine with certainty that data was
properly deleted, consistent with applicable law; 2) list how the data may be accessed,
including who will be responsible for authorizing access; 3) create a user’s log to track
viewing, accessing, sharing, analyzing, or use of any data captured or collected, including
the date, time, the individuals involved, the data involved, the reason(s) for viewing,
accessing, sharing, analyzing, or using the data, and the authority for doing the act
performed (e.g. warrant, reasonable suspicion); 4) list a description of the individuals
who have authority to obtain copies of the records and how the existence and location of
copies will be tracked; 5) describe how and when independent third-party compliance
audits will be conducted.

The results of the audit(s) shall be given to the Privacy Officer for incorporation into the
annual information report (see “Metrics”).

meeting. The Privacy Officer shall issue a report describing the implementation of the
