While you are using our webpages we collect anonymous traffic data using cookies, small files related to the website or app you’re viewing that provide a kind of ‘short-term memory’ for that website. Types of information in cookies might include general information about your visit, sometimes aggregated with data from other visits, that helps us understand how users are interacting with the website or helps the website to function properly. It may include data such as the Internet address you were connected to during your visit, the name of the web page from which you entered our site, which of our resources you visited, in what order, and for how long.
Most Excel school websites use the Google Analytics service. Other data-collection and analysis tools may be used at EES, providing they do not collect any form of Personally Identifiable Information (often referred to as ‘PII’).
In addition, all web servers throughout the Internet collect basic details on connections in their server logs, including requesting IP addresses, resources requested, time of the request, and whether the request was successful.
