The online privacy statement is intended to inform you of the information collected by this website and how that information is used.

Please note that some individual University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee webpages may adopt different privacy practices. In such instances, the specific policies and practices governing that page will be described therein.

The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UWM) collects and analyzes certain data from visitors to the website. This data includes computer host names and IP addresses of all visitors.

UWM uses Google Analytics to collect and analyze overall website usage. Google Analytics uses cookies to collect visitor session data and generate usage reports. The data does not include individual names, usernames or email addresses.

Requested web pages, visitor computer host names and visitor IP addresses are collected but are not associated with the names of individual visitors.

UWM uses the data described above, whether collected directly or by Google Analytics, for purposes of site management, security, optimizing user experiences and other administrative tasks.

UWM also collects personal information that visitors voluntarily submit, such as name, email address, postal address, phone number and other information for the purpose of providing information and services in response to individual requests. Personal information voluntarily submitted to UWM is only used for the purposes described when it is collected.

This site is protected by reCAPTCHA and the Google Privacy Policy and Terms of Service apply. UWM utilizes Google’s reCAPTCHA version 3 (v3) to mitigate abusive spamming of webforms by malicious bots. ReCAPTCHA v3 runs adaptive risk analysis in the background to provide a score with information collected about the user to differentiate human vs bot interactions without requiring a user response. Information that may be collected to provide an accurate score includes IP address, cookies, browser history/plugins, Google account information (if logged into a google account) and user behavior, such as scrolling, mouse movements, clicking on links, time spent completing forms, and typing patterns.

Except as described above, information collected by UWM is only released to third parties (organizations outside of UWM) when required by law (including, but not limited to, the Wisconsin Open Records Law) or court order, when necessary to protect the rights and property of UWM, or in urgent circumstances to protect the safety of individuals.

This website contains links to other websites outside of the domain. UWM is not responsible for the privacy practices or content of external websites.
