Gathering website usage information
We use several tools to gather statistics about your use of the Library's main website and some related sites and services (such as Summit). We gather and review this data to improve our website's usability.
For this purpose we use browser cookies to gather information such as: your country, the type of device and operating system you are using, and how you have come to our pages (whether you were directed to the Library via a search engine, for example).
Google Analytics gathers some information whenever you visit our site. We have configured IP Anonymization in Google Analytics, which requests Google to mask part of your IP address. For more information, see Google Analytics: Safeguarding your data.
You can opt out by turning off cookies in the preferences settings in your browser or by using privacy mode (also known as private browsing or incognito mode) or similar options.
For Google Analytics, you can also use the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on.
Pages, resources and tools that are not included
Please be aware that the Library website links to many external and propriety sites and resources. The Library Catalogue, subscription databases, and other sites and resources add their own cookies, both for functionality and for measuring and tracking use.
