In order to provide service to appropriate users from off the Columbia University Medical Center campus we access and maintain personally identifiable information about library users.

This information is never sold or released to third parties except as required by law.
We also use anonymized and aggregated information from visits to the library website including:
- Internet domain and IP address from which the HSL website was accessed
- Type of browser and operating system used

This information does not generally identify individual users and is only used within the library to try and make the library website more useful.
