IP address – a number that is assigned to your computer when you log on and that is automatically identified when a computer connects to a server. An IP address identifies the computer, not the computer user.
Information Collection and Use
UIU websites collect some information from our visitors so we can adjust our websites to meet our users' needs and expectations. Some of this information is collected automatically when you access any UIU web page and other information is provided by you to us on a voluntary basis.
Information Gathered Automatically
UIU collects non-personally identifying information such as the browser type, operating system, language preference, referring site, the date and time(s) of your visit, and the webpages, files, documents and links accessed during your visit. UIU servers may log and track your IP address but does not normally link IP addresses to personally identifiable information. The University may use IP addresses to identify a user when necessary to enforce compliance with law or University policies and for purposes of system administration.
Some UIU web sections use Google Analytics and/or Monsido to gather statistics about web traffic and to provide basic quality control services for our web content. For more information, read Google Analytics’ and Monsido’s privacy policies.
Users can set their browsers to receive notification when a website sends them a cookie
so users may accept or reject it. Rejecting or disabling cookies may cause parts
of that web page to not function properly.
Information You Provide to Us
The University will only collect Personally Identifiable Information (PII) which you knowingly and voluntarily provide. If you provide us with personal information, we may use this information to contact you in regard to your implied interest in the University. The transmission of any PII data is secured with the use of SSL encryption to ensure this sensitive information remains private. If you are requested to provide personal information that you do not wish to provide electronically, contact the University by postal mail or telephone.
Other than directory information, data you provide to us as you use UIU's websites will be held in strictest confidence by the University and its employees, and will be used for University purposes only. We will not sell your personal data.
Some UIU websites may link to websites that are outside the “uiu.edu” domain and are controlled and operated by third parties. The University is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such third party websites.
Our Commitment to Data Security
The University will take appropriate steps to protect the information you share with us from unauthorized access or disclosure. The University strives to implement security measures that protect the loss, misuse, and modification of the information under our control. Any applicable privacy and public records obligations that the University has under Federal or state law will be observed. UIU will abide by all laws concerning the release of personal information (e.g., Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, as amended).
