Privacy policy

The following statement explains our policy regarding the personal information we collect about you when you visit the Information Skills Resource.

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics to gather information on how the site is used which we analyse to help us to improve the service. It automatically collects standard information, including your browser type, operating system, pages visited and access times. This does not identify the individual user in any way. We use this information to see which pages are popular, and which do not receive many visitors and therefore require improvement to their content.

However, if you prefer you can opt out.

Logging in

If you are off campus, you will be asked to log in with your University username and password to see certain pages. This is simply to validate that you are a University of Sheffield student or staff member, and to get you access to the material we restrict to our students/staff. We do not collect this information, or use or share it in any way.


If you feel this site is not following its stated information policy, you may contact or write to University Data Protection Officer, Corporate Information & Computing Services, 10-12 Brunswick Street, Sheffield, S10 2FN
