The right to privacy is well stated in the 1987 Philippine Constitution particularly in Sections I, III, VI, VIII and XVII of the Bill of Rights. It is also safeguarded by several provisions of the Civil Code and the Revised Penal Code, among others. As such, R.A. No. 10173 or the Data Privacy Act of 2012 was enacted to uphold the citizens’ right to privacy through responsible handling of data. In compliance, the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) recognizes the right to privacy of its internal and external stakeholders.

Personal Information collected by the Commission through this Portal will be used primarily to give the site’s editors and administrators an idea of how the CHED stakeholders use the Portal and what information they are looking for in the portal.
