All of our Student Organization sites deploy cookies in a visitor’s computer. A "cookie" is a small text file sent to the browser and stored on your computer's hard drive for easier access the next time you visit that particular page. "Cookies" help us determine how and when pages are visited, and by how many people. We use "cookies" to store your preferences and settings, help you with your sign-in, and analyze our site operations. This technology does not collect personal identifiable information that you do not specifically provide us. Any information you provide us is used to improve the navigation of our site.
How You Can Control Cookies:
Accepting cookies through your web browser is your choice. You can set your browser to disable cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies but provide you with controls that allow you to block or delete them. For example, in Chrome or in Edge, you can control cookies by selecting Settings > Privacy and Security.
How HubSpot Tracks Site Visitors:
We are using HubSpot to assist us in better understanding how individuals use our site. The HubSpot software leaves behind a "cookie" on your browsers that helps identify you on your future visits to our site. "Cookies" are placed on your computer to collect non-personal information. The information that is collected through these "cookies" tells us things like which search engine referred you, how long you stayed on the site, and how you navigated around our site.
How We Use Email.
When you provide us with your email address, we may send you emails related to student organization information or to respond to your request(s). Also, if you decide to participate in our Student Satisfaction surveys, your email address will be used to send you these surveys periodically.
