USP.org Cookies Policy

To enhance your experience on USP.org, many of our web pages use cookies. Cookies are small text files that we place in your computer's browser to store your preferences. Cookies, by themselves, do not tell us your email address or other personal information unless you choose to provide this information to us—for example, by registering for e-newsletters or completing a web form. Once you choose to provide personal information to a web page, this information may be linked to the data stored in the cookie. A cookie is like an identification card. It is unique to your computer and can be read only by the server that gave it to you.

How USP.org Uses Cookies

Cookies help us run this website more efficiently. We can also learn about what content is important to you and what is not, through a range of analytics tools. We can revise or remove web pages that are not of interest, and focus our energies on the content you want.

Analytics Cookies

Analytics cookies store information about what pages people visit, how long they are on the site, how they got there, and what they click on. Information supplied by analytics cookies helps us analyze the profile of visitors and provide them with a better experience.

Analytics cookies do not collect or store personal information (for example, names or addresses), so this information cannot be used to identify individuals. USP does not allow analytics companies to use or share its analytics data.

Profiles

Some areas of USP.org allow users to log in and retrieve personal information and account details. Some of these areas use a cookie in order to remember account information.

Third-Party Cookies

Throughout USP.org, you will find embedded videos from the external site YouTube. Cookies that come from another site like YouTube but work on USP.org are called third-party cookies. As a product of Google, YouTube has its own cookies policy. You can learn more about Google and YouTube’s cookies policy on their Policies & Principles page.
