Information We Record

If you visit UCCP just to browse the website or download information, our web operating system records will automatically record some non-personal information. During your visit, our Web operating system will record:

The Internet domain for your Internet service, such as "xcompany.com" or "xcompany.net" if you use a private Internet access account, or "yourschool.edu" if you connect from a college or university domain.

The type of browser (such as "Netscape version X" or "Internet Explorer version X") that you are using. The type of operating system that you use (such as Macintosh, Unix, or Windows).
The date and time you visit our site, and the Web pages that you visit on our site.
The address of the previous Web site you were visiting, if you linked to us from another Web site.
We use this information to help us make our site more useful to visitors. We do not use this system to record your personal information.

Security and Intrusion Detection

In order to keep this website secure and available to all users, we use software programs for monitoring network traffic. This helps us identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise to cause damage to our computer system. These programs do not collect personally identifiable information; they only collect information that could help us identify someone trying to tamper with this website.

Except for authorized law enforcement investigations, we do not try to identify individual users or their usage habits. We use monitoring data logs for determining trends in usage patterns and for finding system problems.

Information From Email

If you send us an email, the message will usually contain your return email address. If you include information that could identify you in your email because you want us to address issues specific to your situation, we may use that information in contacting other federal agencies or our partners (such as colleges, lenders, or state agencies). In some rare cases, including requests from Congress or other parties, we may be required by law to disclose information that you submit.

Keep in mind that email is not always secure from outside parties. If you send an email that includes especially personal information, such as data from your tax return or student loan account, you may prefer to send it by postal mail to:
