What Non-personal Information is Collected?

As visitors navigate our site, we do take note of certain non-personal, technical details of the visit. Such information is commonly collected in automatic fashion by most web servers as a means of tracking trends in site traffic. Information that may be collected and compiled into aggregate reports can include:

  • IP address (a string of 4-6 numbers that give you an “address” within the Internet), implying the geographic locale and domain name of your Internet Service Provider
  • type of browser you are using (e.g., Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, etc)
  • basic capabilities of browser and computer used to access the site (e.g., screen resolution, Flash capabilities, window size, etc)
  • web address of referring web sites

In addition, records are compiled on the basis of the timing of website visits, the specific pages accessed, the order of pages visited, and, where possible, whether or not a visitor is a repeat visitor. Again, any information collected is not tied to personal identity and is used only for the internal analysis of aggregate traffic patterns across the site. Such patterns provide insight as to how we may improve the website over time.

Much of the non-personal traffic oriented data collected may be stored and compiled into reports by a third-party traffic analysis service provider that we utilize, Google Analytics. Note that Google’s published privacy policy per se applies to DMII’s account with Google, not your own. As a visitor to dmi.edu, you have no relationship with Google that is mediated by us.

The terms of service agreement under which Google Analytics operates, however, does provide for the privacy protection of Internet users whose non-personal traffic date is utilized in Analytics reporting. Specifically, the Analytics TOS requires that:

  • You [DMII] will not (and will not allow any third party to) use the Service to track or collect personally identifiable information of Internet users, nor will You (or will You allow any third party to) associate any data gathered from Your website(s) (or such third parties’ website(s)) with any personally identifying information from any source as part of Your use (or such third parties’ use) of the Service. This provision is in line with our own privacy policy, of course, and is in the interest of protecting your privacy.
