This section explains how the Johns Hopkins University School of Education's Center for Data Driven Reform in Education will handle information we learn about you from your visit to our website. The information we receive depends upon what you do when visiting our site.
- If you visit our site to read or download information:
- We collect and store only the following information about you: the name of the domain from which you access the Internet (for example, aol.com, if you are connecting from an America Online account, or iowa.edu if you are connecting from the University of Iowa's domain); the date and time you access our site, the Internet address of the website from which you linked directly to our site, if any; and which pages you view while you visit our web site.
- We use the information we collect to count the number of visitors to the different sections of our site, find out what information is the most viewed, and so help us make our web site more useful to visitors.
- This gathering and storing of information is separate from the activity described as monitoring in our Security Notice.
- If you identify yourself by sending us an e-mail message or a completed order form:
- If you decide to send us personally identifying information, we will use that personally identifying information to respond to your comment or suggestion and to count the number of people sending us comments.
We want to be very clear: We will not obtain personally identifying information about you when you visit our site unless you choose to provide such information to us.
The majority of this site does use "cookies" to gather and store information about your visit.
Cookies are essentially tokens of information, such as preferences and passwords, which some web servers collect from you when you access them. Those data are stored on your hard drive and not on the web site's server. Whenever you visit a "cookie" site again, the server looks for its cookie on your hard drive and, if found, then reads the information it stored there. Cookies generally are stored in your browser's directory or folder in a file named cookie.txt (MagicCookie on a Macintosh).
