Like many companies, OSF uses automatic data collection tools on its websites, such as cookies and embedded web links. These tools collect certain standard information that your browser sends to our websites, such as your browser type and the address of the website from which you arrived at one of our websites. These tools may also collect information about your Internet Protocol (IP) address and clickstream behavior (for example, the pages you view and the links you click). Collectively, these tools help make your visit to our websites easier, more efficient and more valuable by providing you with a customized experience and recognizing you upon your return to our site.
A cookie itself does not contain Personal Information. The cookie can't read data off your hard drive or read cookie files created by other sites. Instead the cookie will enable us to relate your use of this site to information that you have specifically and knowingly provided to OSF. Standing alone, cookies do not personally identify you; they merely recognize your web browser. Unless you choose to identify yourself to OSF, either by responding to a promotional offer, registering to download a product, or filling out a web form (such as a “Contact Me”), you remain anonymous to OSF.
To improve the content and format of our websites, OSF uses industry standard web site tracking software to automatically capture user traffic patterns and technical information that is then stored in our servers' log files. This information may include, but is not limited to, user domain, the type of internet browser used, which web pages were visited, and the amount of time spent on our site.
We do not correlate this information with data about individual users. We do break down overall usage statistics according to a user's domain name, browser type, and MIME type by reading this information from the browser string (information contained in every user’s browser).
OSF sometimes tracks and catalogs the search terms users enter in our Search function, however this tracking is never associated with individual users. We use tracking information to determine which areas of our sites users prefer based on traffic to those areas. We do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better online experience for you.SECURITY ASPECTS
