Server Log Information that the University Gathers

ECE servers generate logs that may contain information about computers or devices used to access the ECE website, or about general activity on the ECE website, such as the following:

  • Internet address of computer or device
  • Type of browser or other client application used
  • The operating system of the computer or device
  • Web pages requested
  • Referring Web pages
  • Time spent on the site

Many ECE website server administrators produce summary reports from these logs and share that information with ECE website content managers. ECE website content managers typically use this information to understand what pages are popular, how users are navigating to and within the site, and when the sites are used most frequently. The University strongly discourages including within these server logs any information that could identify individuals.

When a user leaves the ECE website and visits another site, the user is subject to the privacy policy of that new site. The University of Illinois is not responsible for the contents of any off-site pages referenced. The user specifically acknowledges that the University of Illinois is not liable for the defamatory, negligent, inaccurate, offensive, or illegal conduct of other users, links, or third parties and that the risk of injury from the foregoing rests entirely with the user.
