Web Privacy

This page summarizes the privacy policy and practices for the Access & Privacy web site. Other pages you reach from the official homepage of the University are maintained by individual student, staff, and faculty members. We are working to develop a standard web privacy policy for the entire University that reflects the diverse needs of our distributed system.

Information Collected during your Visit

The Access & Privacy website logs http requests to our server. These logs capture computer information including the internet domain and IP address, the date and time, the pages being accessed, and the browser and operating system you are using. Some of the information may identify you depending on the naming standards followed by your internet service provided. We make no attempt to link the information captured in our logs to the identity of individuals. These statistics are kept for two years and then deleted.

Information Collected in Emails

If you choose to provide us with personal information in an email we will use that information to respond to your message. The Access & Privacy website does not collect personal information for commercial, marketing, or distribution to private organizations. Messages sent by email can be intercepted. If you are concerned about sending your personal information by email you can contact us by another method.


For web site security purposes, Queen's University may monitor network traffic, including traffic on the Access & Privacy website, in order to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information or otherwise cause damage. Except for authorized law enforcement investigations, no other attempts are made to identify individual users.
