Footer

Each UCSB website must include a footer at the bottom of each webpage with the elements described in this section.

Include this standard form copyright notice as recommended by the UC Copyright Guide.

Copyright © 2018 The Regents of the University of California, All Rights Reserved.

You may display the year of first publication or the current year using a server-side technology.

The notice format can be altered or omitted to fit your needs.

Terms of Use

Each footer should include a link to the UCSB Terms of Use. Each website can either link directly to the UCSB Terms of Use document or include the content from that document on their own page using a server-side technology.

If your organization needs to modify the Terms of Use document for a specific purpose, you should submit the modified version for approval to policy@ucsb.edu. If the Coordinator approves the modified content, the updated version can be used and a copy will be retained by Administrative Services.

Privacy Notification

All UCSB websites that collect personal information from visitors should include a link to the UCSB Privacy Notification. Anonymous information collected for the purpose of web analytics is not considered personal information. Similar to the Terms of Use, each website can either link directly to the UCSB Privacy Policy or include the content from that document on their own page using a server-side technology.

The link to either the UCSB Privacy Policy or the page with the included content should contain the word “privacy.”

If your organization needs to modify the Privacy Policy document for a specific purpose, you should submit the modified version for approval to policy@ucsb.edu. If the Coordinator approves the modified content, the updated version can be used and a copy will be retained by Administrative Services.

It is a good practice to also include a link to the privacy policy close to where a user is entering personal information. For example, a link to the privacy policy could be added to the top of a form that a user is filling out or next to where a user enters their username and password to log into a secure application.

Accessibility

Include a statement or link to a statement offering alternative content for those who cannot access your page:

If any of the material on this page is not accessible to you, please
<a href="mailto:webmaster@department.ucsb.edu">send us an email</a>
or <a href="/contact">contact us via our contact page</a>
and we will provide alternatives.

Last Modified Date (Optional)

Each web page may contain the date the last time the page was updated. The last modified date should appear in the following format: May 4, 2018 (no month or year abbreviation)

All websites should contain an email link or link to a contact form to contact someone within the organization about questions or concerns with the website.

The following example includes all of the guidelines described above:
