Log files are maintained for all requests for files on this website's web servers. Log files do not capture personal information but do capture the user's IP address, which is automatically recognised by our web servers.
University of Roehampton will make no attempt to identify individual users. You should be aware, however, that access to webpages will generally create log entries in the systems of your ISP or network service provider. These entities may be in a position to identify the client computer equipment used to access a page. Such monitoring would be done by the provider of network services and is beyond the responsibility or control of University of Roehampton.
University of Roehampton will make no attempt to track or identify individual users, except where there is a reasonable suspicion that unauthorised access to systems is being attempted. In the case of all users, University of Roehampton reserves the right to attempt to identify and track any individual who is reasonably suspected of trying to gain unauthorised access to computer systems or resources operating as part of University of Roehampton web services.
All log file information collected by University of Roehampton is kept secure and no access to raw log files is given to any third party.
