All analytics data communication is encrypted via HTTPS protocol.

Masking of IP addresses

Note: Institution, city and country origin are determined from the full IP, then stored and aggregated before a mask is applied. Google Analytics uses an IP de-identification mechanism that automatically masks a portion of each visitor’s IP (Internet Protocol), effectively making it impossible to identify a particular visitor via the sole IP address.

Google Analytics automatically deletes visitors’ logs after 25 months. Anonymised and aggregated data are stored for an indefinite period by the University for analysis purposes.
