The use of memory sticks or similar devices such as floppy disks to record agency information about a service user, or any other confidential matter is forbidden by both university and agency requirements. If information is copied to these, and for example used on your own laptop at home or elsewhere, it is not possible to fully guarantee confidentiality. It will also mean that you will fail your practice learning opportunity. Students who use memory sticks etc to overcome a disability they may have are advised to seek guidance from student services. There are NO exceptions to this policy.
