There is a proposed Policy on Collecting Information from Visitors to University Web Sites (Online Privacy) being reviewed throughout the University of Minnesota System. We expect this policy to be approved this spring, with an effective date of September 2001.

Note that this policy will require many University web sites, including official sites and those that collect information from visitors or track user actions, to "select, adhere to and notify visitors of their information collection policy."

The Campus Web Committee is monitoring the progress of this policy and will ensure that top-level campus pages and those using official templates will comply with the basic policy. Units with web sites should also review the policy and prepare for compliance.

The draft policy is available at: U of M Online Privacy Policy Draft
