Information We Collect

There are three types of information that may be collected during your visit: Network traffic and Web server logs, cookies, and information voluntarily provided by you.

  • Monitor and maintain the performance of the University network
  • In the course of such monitoring, these programs may detect such information as e-mail headers, addresses from network packets and other information. Information from these activities is used solely for the purpose of maintaining the security and performance of the University's networks and computer systems. Personally identifiable information from these activities is not released to external parties unless required by law.
