Privacy Policy

The University of Houston Libraries uses web server log information to create internal summary reports about website use. Some reports may identify the host name of the computer used.

The Libraries do not use cookies to gather and analyze personal information; however, some vendors of electronic resources that the Libraries license do use cookies on their systems.

The Libraries uses personal information provided in email requests, web forms, authentication sessions with library servers, and other electronic transactions to provide the requested service and to analyze the effectiveness of service efforts.

If a service request requires that another organization provide the needed service (e.g., an interlibrary loan request) and that organization requires that personal data be supplied, then the Libraries will provide that organization with the data. Otherwise, the Libraries will not release any personal information gathered to any third party unless required to do so by law.
