Collection of Your Personal Information
We collect information as part of operating of this site and other services. At some MATC (Milwaukee Area Technical College) sites, we ask you to provide personal information, such as your e-mail address, name and other. We may also collect demographic information, such as your ZIP code, age, gender, preferences, interests and favorites.
We collect information about your interaction with MATC sites and services without identifying you as an individual. For example, we receive certain standard information that your browser sends to every website you visit, such as your IP address, browser type and language, access times and referring Web site addresses. We also use Web site analytics tools on our sites to retrieve information from your browser, including the site you came from, the search engine(s) and the keywords you used to find our site, the pages you view within our site, your browser add-ons, and your browser’s width and height.
We use technologies, such as cookies and web beacons (described below), to collect information about the pages you view, the links you click and other actions you take on our sites and services.
In order to offer you a more consistent and personalized experience in your interactions with MATC, information collected through one Microsoft service may be combined with information obtained through other MATC services. We may also supplement the information we collect with information obtained from other companies. For example, we may use services from other companies that enable us to derive a general geographic area based on your IP address in order to customize certain services to your geographic area.
