Does the college know when you watch their recorded livestreams?

I know watching livestreams alerts the college that you attended, however, I am not always free! Does watching recordings alert them of your interest too?

Hi there! Could you let us know which livestream you watched? Colleges don't always know if you attended a livestream, so I want to make sure we're on the same page for the specific livestream.

Thank you! I have watched a bunch, so it's okay, I do not want to inconvenience you. It is more about me learning about colleges anyway, so even if they do not note my interest that's no problem!

Here's a general overview of how it works: schools are only notified of attendance if it's a partner school hosting the stream with us (these are ones where admissions officers are actually on the stream) and the user attends live. All other streams are run by us, and schools are not notified (regardless of if you watch live or recorded). Hope this helps!
