    Ximedus's registration sites, such as our library, and the student and faculty websites, require visitors to provide contact information and/or unique identifiers when they register. Information collected may include a user's name, address, e-mail address, as well as unique identifiers, such as their Social Security number or student ID number. Contact information is used to contact our visitors if necessary.

Contact information is used to send information about Ximedus to the customer requesting that information. Customer interest information is collected to determine what information the customer wishes to be sent. Opt-out policy: You could choose NOT to provide this information online.

 Definitions


 Cookies

Data created by a web server that is stored on a user's computer. It provides a way for the website to keep track of a user's patterns and preferences and, with the cooperation of the web browser, to store them on the user's own hard disk.


The cookies contain a range of 
URLs (web addresses) for which they are valid. When the browser encounters those URLs again, it sends those specific cookies to the web server. For example, if a user's ID were stored as a cookie, it would save that person from typing in the same information all over again when accessing that service for the second and subsequent time during the same browser session.

You can opt out of the use of cookies by having your browser disable cookies or warn you before accepting a cookie. Look for the cookie options in your browser in the options or preferences menu.


NOTE: If you disable cookies in your browser, you will not be able to access any of the Ximedus's secured websites.

 IP (Internet Protocol) Address


This is the address of a computer attached to a TCP/IP network. Every client and server station must have a unique IP address. Client workstations have either a permanent address or one that is dynamically assigned for each internet session. IP addresses are written as four sets of numbers separated by periods; for example, 204.171.64.2. 


top



 Browser Session


A browser session is defined as the period of time a browser is in consecutive use. The session begins when you open the browser and ends when you close it. When you reopen the browser, you begin a new session. 


top



 SSL Encryption (Secure Sockets Layer)


This is the leading security protocol on the Internet. When an SSL session is started, the browser sends its public key to the server so that the server can securely send a secret key to the browser. The browser and server exchange data via secret key encryption during that session. We also use SSL encryption whenever we display your personal information (e.g., name and address).

 URL (Uniform Resource Locator)


This is an Internet address. URLs are used to locate sites on the Internet and to navigate between sites and pages within sites. The URL for Ximedus is
