Like most website operators, Public Health Degrees collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Public Health Degrees’ purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Public Health Degrees’ visitors use its website.

Public Health Degrees also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on Public Health Degrees’ blogs/sites. Public Health Degrees only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.
