University of Minnesota Online Privacy Policy
(reprinted with permission from the UM Policy Newsletter)

To help protect the privacy of individuals that visit University web sites the University developed a policy, "Collecting Information From Visitors To University Web Sites (Online Privacy)". The policy establishes standards for informing visitors whether and when the University collects information electronically from the WWW. Visit this url for the complete Policy Statement.

That policy contains a new Online Privacy Statement. You should link to this site if you only collect routine statistics, collect data explicitly with user consent for specific purposes, and (optionally) use cookies for login identification and to carry session information. The links should be made by September 1, 2001.

If you collect additional information from web visitors, you should develop a customized privacy statement that describes those activities. For guidance on making this decision see the procedure Selecting an Online Privacy Policy.
