Data Collection

If you access information on our websites, the following information may be automatically collected and stored on our servers:

  • the name of the internet domain (for example, “xcompany.com” if you use a private Internet access account, or “yourschool.edu” if you are connecting from a university’s domain);
  • the Internet Protocol (IP) address (a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you are using the Internet) from which you access our site;
  • the type of browser and operating system used to access our site;
  • the date and time you access our site;
  • the internet address of the website from which you linked directly to our site; and
  • the pages you visit and the information you request.

This information is primarily collected for statistical analysis and technical improvements to the site. Our computer system uses software programs to create summary statistics, which may be used for such purposes as assessing what information is of most and least interest, determining technical design specifications and identifying system performance or problem areas. In certain circumstances, however, we may take additional steps to identify you based on this information and we may share this information, including your identity, with other government agencies.

Cookies

Website measurement and customisation technologies (commonly called “cookies”) are small bits of text that are downloaded to your internet browser when you visit a website. You may control permissions for cookies on this or any other website by adjusting your individual browser settings for customised privacy protection. You can still use our websites if you do not accept the cookies, but you may be unable to use certain cookie-dependent features.

Session cookies – Session cookies are not stored on your computer’s hard drive and are removed when you complete your session or exit the site. No personally identifying information is gathered.

Persistent cookies – Persistent cookies remain on your computer’s hard drive after you complete an activity. For example, some of our websites use persistent cookies in association with a voluntary customer satisfaction survey conducted by a third party. These surveys obtain feedback and data regarding visitor satisfaction with our websites, but they do not collect any personally identifying information. If you are randomly selected to participate in this survey, a persistent cookie is stored on your computer’s hard drive for 90 days to preclude a new invitation during that time. Some of our websites also use persistent cookies to enable a Google Analytics or Webtrends program to measure how new and returning visitors use our websites over time. These persistent cookies do not collect any personally identifying information and the information that is collected is only used to improve our websites.
