York University Libraries' Digital Scholarship Centre collects data for two purposes.
Workshop registrations and bookings of equipment or space
Collected data is used only for the purposes of communicating with you about your bookings, and to allow you to manage bookings yourself. This information is scrubbed at the conclusion of the booking or workshop by replacing all names and email addresses with the name "Attendee" and the email address firstname.lastname@example.org.
No historical records of workshop attendance (aside from the total number of people who were present) are kept.
We use the free and open-source Matomo system for website analytics, and have chosen the product for its ability to record and store data locally, without sharing information with third-party services (such as Google). We use its reports for the following purposes:
- to assess and evaluate the design of the site on an ongoing basis
- to provided aggregated metrics (limited to "hit counts" and other basic data) on how heavily-used of the site's pages and features are
Matomo will respect your web browser's settings, and will not collect any data if you have 'Do Not Track' features enabled. Regardless, you may opt out of data collection at any time.
You may choose to prevent this website from aggregating and analyzing the actions you take here. Doing so will protect your privacy, but will also prevent the owner from learning from your actions and creating a better experience for you and other users.
