National Center for Transit Research
at the University of South Florida
Thank you for visiting the University of South Florida's
National Center for Transit Research (NCTR) website. NCTR follows USF's
Your privacy is very important to us. Simply stated, our
policy for official USF websites is to collect no personal information about you
when you visit an official USF website unless you affirmatively choose to make
such information available to us.
When you visit official USF websites, our Web servers
automatically recognize only the Internet domain and IP address from which you
accessed that website, and keep track of the types of operating systems, screen
resolutions, and other hardware related items that help us make our site more
accessible. This information does not result in the identification of your
personal e-mail address or other personal information.
In addition, we may gather information regarding the volume
and timing of access to our websites by collecting information on the date, time
and website pages accessed by visitors to the website. We do this so that we can
improve the content of our website and this information is not shared with other
organizations. Again, only aggregate information is collected, and individual
visitor's personal information is not identified.
If you choose to share information with us - by sending us a
message or filling out an electronic form with personal information - we will
use the information only for the purposes you authorized. Some of the
information may be saved for a designated period of time to comply with
Florida's archiving policies, but we will not disclose the information to third
parties or other government agencies, unless required to do so by state or
federal law or by your specific permission.
Please be aware that as a large University with over 45,000
students, faculty and staff, there are many websites within the USF.edu domain.
This policy relates to those websites on which the University conducts its
official business. Because we encourage the development and deployment of
technology in an environment of academic freedom, we cannot ensure that all
websites within the USF.edu domain are in strict compliance with this policy at
ideas about improving our policies, please feel free to e-mail the University
Relations office at
firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone at (813) 974-4014.
