The University will only disclose information about print card accounts to third parties when it is necessary for completing transactions; in order to comply with government agencies, internal University investigations, or any court orders; or with written permission from the cardholder.

Financial liability

Lost or stolen card liability states that if the University is notified of the lost card within two business days, the cardholder will be responsible for no more than $10. Failure to notify the University within two days may result in a maximum liability of $50, providing the University can prove it could have prevented the illegal use of the card.

Guest printing cards are non-transferable and non-refundable. Balances carry over automatically to each new semester and academic year; however, after 18 months of inactivity, any balance on the card will be forfeited, and the account will be closed.
