Information Gathering

We use your Internet domain and the Internet address of the computer you are using, the type of browser and operating system you are using, and the date and time of access to help diagnose problems with our servers and to administer our websites. We identify which parts of our sites are most heavily used, and which portion of our audience comes from within and outside of the VSC network. We do not link your computer's internet address to anything personally identifiable. This means that user sessions may be tracked, but the users will remain anonymous.  

Some of the Vermont State Colleges use Google Analytics to monitor traffic on websites.
