Our policy is to respect your privacy. We do not use any type of adware or spyware on this website. You can browse this site with confidence!
However, our website software and third-party advertisers do collect unidentifiable personal information, as outlined below.
As with most other websites, we collect and use the data contained in log files. The information in the log files includes your IP (internet protocol) address, your ISP (internet service provider, such as AOL or Verizon), the browser you used to visit our site (such as Internet Explorer or Firefox), the time you visited our site, and which pages you visited throughout our site.
Cookies and Web Beacons
We do use third party advertisements to support our site. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on our site, which will also send these advertisers (such as Google through the Google AdSense program) information including your IP address, your ISP , the browser you used to visit our site, and in some cases, whether you have Flash installed. This is generally used for geotargeting purposes (showing University of Pennsylvania ads to someone in Pennsylvania, for example) or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing medical school ads to someone who frequents medical career websites).
If you would like, you can chose to disable or selectively turn off our cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings, often by clicking Tools > Options on the menu. However, this can negatively affect your browsing experience or result in the inability to log in to other services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts. But if you dealing with school computers, you probably are already familiar with your online privacy and can figure it out.
