Privacy Policy

This page provides a general overview of how Cimba Italy websites collect information, how that information is used, and how we protect information you provide to us.

Individual University of Iowa websites may establish their own information collection practices as permitted by law and may provide additional privacy information.

Information gathered automatically


Cookies are small text files that collect information about website activity. We use cookies for two primary purposes—to carry info about your current site visit from one page to the next, and to recognize you and remember your preferences on any subsequent visits.

You can disable cookies by changing preference settings in your web browser. You can use many UI websites with cookies disabled, but may find that some functions require cookies.

Pixel tags

Also called web beacons, web bugs, or clear GIFs, pixel tags are tiny image files that may be used to monitor website use. Disabling cookies in your web browser preferences will prevent pixel tags from collecting any unique information.

Pixel tags also may be used to track whether you open email messages we send. You can disable some pixel tags by turning off HTML display or images in your email software.

Third-party tracking tools

We use third-party tracking tools to monitor and improve sites or to provide ads and other information that may be of interest to users. These tools may collect the following information:

  • Internet protocol (IP) address for your computer/device
  • Website from which you arrived
  • Operating system and web browser software
  • Date and time of your visit
  • Pages you visit on this site
  • Terms you use in our site’s search engines

Third-party tools like Google Analytics help website administrators track site usage, understand how users find sites, and improve website function and content.

Other third-party tools show CIMBA advertisements on sites across the web. Using cookies and related technologies, these tools show ads to people who’ve previously visited our websites or might be interested in our sites based on other sites they’ve visited.

You can opt out of these services:

Server logs

Like third-party tracking tools, our web servers routinely generate logs that include basic information helpful in monitoring website usage and performance:

  • IP address
  • Web browser software and plugins
  • Date and time of your visit
  • Path taken through our sites
  • Any errors you encounter

Information you provide

You can choose whether to provide this information. Providing personal information on a voluntary basis may be necessary for certain services (for example, joining a mailing list or registering interest in a program).

CIMBA ITALY will not share your personal information with third parties except:

  • As required by law
  • As necessary to protect the university’s interests

If you express interest about university programs, UI units and vendors contracted by the university may match limited personal information with information about how you use UI websites.


By using University of Iowa websites and CIMBA ITALY website, you consent to the terms of this privacy statement.
