To better accomplish this goal we may collect personal data about you such as, but not limited to, your IP address, registration information, your ISP, navigation data, or contact information.

Browsing Data

When using our website, small packets of information are collected and transmitted to Google. This information is used for analytics purposes only. The information collected provides BBER staff the ability to see which pages are most viewed and some aggregated data about users. This data is controlled under Google’s privacy policy; full text is available here: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/ .

Google Analytics is an industry standard, according to W3tech.com, 54.5% of all websites use Google Analytics. If for some reason you would like to limit the data shared with Google, it is suggested to use a private browsing window without being logged into any Google services. At the end of your session you should close the window. This will limit the information collected to only include your bber.unm.edu browsing behavior.

Note that BBER staff does not gain access to any “personal data” by using Google Analytics.

Offsite links

In fulfilling our mission, our website includes links that will take you away from bber.unm.edu.

While it is our goal to provide links only to high quality sites that we think will be useful to our users, we cannot be held accountable for website content beyond our own. Additionally, websites we link to may have privacy policies that differ from this one.
