Access Information (automatically collected)
Client information: the Internet domain and Internet address of the computer you are using.
Technical information: identification of the page or service you are requesting, type of browser and operating system you are using; and the date and time of access, the Internet address of the website from which you linked directly to our website, and the “cookie information” used to direct and tailor information based on your entry path to the site.
Essential and nonessential technical information lets UWS respond to your request in an appropriate format (or in a personalized manner) and helps the university plan website improvements. To expedite this process, some official UWS webpages use “cookies.” Usually a cookie enables UWS to tailor what you see according to the way you entered the site. UWS also uses non-identifying and aggregate information to better design its website. For example, UWS may determine that X number of individuals visited a certain area on our website, or that Y number of men and Z number of women filled out a particular registration form. However, UWS does not disclose information that could identify those specific individuals.
