Log Files

When a visitor requests a page of information from a web site, information about the request is automatically stored in a log file. This information includes the address of the computer making the request (the Internet address, not the street address), the time and date of the request, the type of web browser being used, and sometimes, the page from which the visitor is coming. The information does not contain the visitor's name or email address, since the visitor's browser does not provide this information to the web server.

St. Francis uses log files to analyze trends, administer the site, track visitors' movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. This information helps identify how visitors are using the content on the site.
