The Council of Ontario Universities (COU) is committed to protecting and respecting the privacy of every person who visits our website (herein referred to as the “user”).
The Council does not collect any personal information, unless the user voluntarily uses a service that requires it.
It is a common standard to use automatic data collection tools, such as cookies, embedded web links and web beacons. The COU website follows this model. These tools collect standard information that the user’s browser sends to the COU website, such as the user’s browser type or the address of the website from which they arrived. The tools may also collect information about the user’s Internet Protocol (IP) address (a number automatically assigned to their computer whenever they are surfing the web, allowing web servers to locate and identify their computer) and user behaviors, such as the pages they view and the links they click. These tools help make user visit to our website easier, more efficient and more valuable by providing them with a customized experience.
