Privacy Statement


UWISpace, the institutional repository of The University of the West Indies (“UWI”), respects your privacy and is committed to protecting it through our compliance with this policy.

This policy describes the types of information we may collect from you or that you may provide when you visit UWISpace and our practices for collecting, using, maintaining, protecting, and disclosing that information.

This policy applies to information we collect:

  • On UWISpace.
  • In email, and other electronic messages between you and this website.

Please read this policy carefully to understand our policies and practices regarding your information and how we will treat it. If you do not agree with our policies and practices, your choice is not to use UWISpace. By accessing or using UWISpace, you agree to this privacy policy.

Information We Collect

We collect information you provide directly to us when you use UWISpace. For example, we collect information when you submit content, complete forms, or communicate with us. The types of information we may collect include your email address, and any content you share with us.

We use Google Analytics to collect information about visitor traffic and behaviour. This allows us to identify usage trends and to improve the performance of UWISpace. We do not use this tool to collect or store your personal information, and it cannot be used to identify who you are.

You can use the Google Analytics Opt-Out Browser Addon to disable tracking by Google Analytics.


We take reasonable measures to protect your information from unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. However, no data transmission over the internet or electronic storage system can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Therefore, we cannot guarantee the absolute security of your information.
