Performance Cookies -- User Settable option

Performance Cookies allow us to count visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance and effectiveness of University websites. These Cookies also help the University understand which webpages are the most and least popular, see how visitors move around the site, and determine whether webpage content is relevant to user interests. Performance Cookies may be permanent or temporary, and they do not personally identify individual visitors. Some Performance Cookies are ‘analytics’ Cookies, using third-party software tools, which help us understand more about how our website is used and where visitors come from by collecting and aggregating anonymous information on the pages visited and any advertisements viewed. You can also set your browser to block or delete these Cookies, but if you do so, some services and functionalities may not work.

Functional Cookies -- User Settable option

Functional Cookies enhance the performance and functionality of our websites but are non-essential to their use. These permanent Cookies allow our website to remember information from your previous visit, such as details you submitted before or your previously stated preferences. These Cookies may also be used to provide services you request, such as newsletters or publications. They may be first- or third-party Cookies that enable services we have added to our webpages. You can also set your browser settings to delete, block or alert you to these Cookies. If you do not allow these Cookies, some or all of these services may not function properly.

Targeting Cookies -- User Settable option

Targeting Cookies are used to deliver content tailored to your interests and may be temporary or permanent. They may be first- or third-party Cookies. Targeting Cookies are based on uniquely identifying your browser and device; they do not store information such as your name. The University may use targeting Cookies prepared by the University, its third-party contractors, or advertising partners to provide you with personalized University display advertising and promotional material about the University and its programs. The University may also allow third parties to place Cookies on your device that collect and use anonymous information about your visits to, and interactions with, our website to personalize advertisements and promotional materials for University goods and services. Targeting Cookies may be used by those companies to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant advertisements on other sites. We may share information about your use of our site with our social media, advertising, and analytics partners who may combine it with other information that you have provided to them or that they have collected from your use of their services. If you do not allow Targeting Cookies, you will still see advertisements, but they will be less targeted to your interests. You can set your browser to delete, block, or alert you to these Cookies.
