III. Web Browsing Practices

a. Logging Practices. Our site logs do generate certain kinds of non-identifying site usage data, such as the number of hits and visits to our sites. This information is used for internal purposes by technical support staff to provide better services to the public and may also be provided to others, but again, the statistics contain no personal information and cannot be used to gather such information. We are also logging some specific technical information generated by our content server which is used for troubleshooting server functionality. Site information is used to confirm participation in the UAP programs and may be used to advise participants of the numbers of visitors who come to our site from their sites. No personal information is collected. Our Web servers automatically record domain names of the Web sites of visitors to our sites. The domain name is a web address registered for every Web site on the Internet. We record the domain names of the sites that users visited immediately prior to the UAPWeb. The Web servers keep track of the pages visited on the UAP Web and the amount of time spent on those pages. UAP only uses this information for statistical purposes, to find out which pages users find most useful and to improve the website.

b. Cookies. The UAPWeb is not set up to track, collect or distribute personal information not entered by visitors. A cookie is a small amount of data that is sent to your browser from a Web server and stored on your computer's hard drive. UAP uses non-identifying cookies to provide easier site navigation and access to forms. Cookies used by UAP are session based and therefore only last for the duration of the user's session. Cookies created by UAP are stored on UAP server and not on user’s browser. The cookie is used to keep user ID generated by the server after user sign in to the system. You can still use UAPWeb if your browser is set to reject cookies. Our cookies do not generate personal data, do not read personal data from your machine and are never tied to anything that could be used to identify you.

UAP is not responsible for the legality or accuracy of information on externally linked sites, or for any costs incurred while using externally linked sites. External links are intended to support UAP’s mission. They are not intended to support private or commercial organizations or businesses. Links to .org, .gov, .edu, .ph or other non-profit sites that share architectural interests inherent to UAP’s mission are encouraged because of their general non-commercial, public-interest nature. Links to .com, .net, and other commercial domains are acceptable if supportive of customers’ needs and relevant to UAP’s mission. Links to external web sites may be removed if the Web sites lobby or solicit UAP organization on positions of fiscal or political nature, or if they receive funds or revenue for volume of traffic delivered from UAP to the external site where the site is not an official partner of UAP. UAP reserves the right to review links and add or remove links at any time for any reason consistent with UAP Policy and Guidance. When you link to an outside website, including the social networking sites, you are leaving the UAP Web site and the UAP's information management policies no longer apply.
