Listed below are several ways in which our site/servers might collect information during your visit:

Network Traffic/Web Activity Logs:
In order to monitor network security, to maintain service consistency and to improve services offered, Berry College uses software applications and/or services that monitor network traffic, identify security issues and detect unauthorized software such as viruses. While monitoring the system, these programs may detect personally identifiable information such as e-mail headers, unencrypted passwords, etc. In addition, web activity is logged that includes but is not limited to pages visited, site routes, date and time stamps, referring site information, IP or domain addresses and browser information (these activities do not provide us with personally identifiable information). In the case of both network traffic and web activity logs, information is not shared with external parties unless required by law.

This service will display tailored ads on third-party websites by placing a cookie on your machine. Cookies are small files written to a designated area of your computer and used to recall information, such as data that needs to be carried from one page to the next or to automatically log you into site areas to which you have previously been granted access.
