The Center for Academic Program Support ("CAPS") respects the privacy of the personal information you give us, such as your name, street address, telephone number and email address, as well as any other personal information you may provide. The following policy is intended to explain how we treat this information.
We take every precaution to protect our users' information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline. CAPS cannot guarantee that these efforts will always be successful and, therefore, users must assume the risk of a breach of University privacy and security systems. Individuals are advised to be discreet and cautious in their use of our systems.
Each time a visitor comes to the CAPS website, we collect some basic technical information, including, for example, the visitor's domain name (i.e., the ISP from which the user is logged on). We use software to keep track of traffic to our sites and derive information such as the location from which the traffic originates and which particular pages within the CAPS website are being viewed and for how long. After we analyze this information, we discard it. We use IP addresses and browser detection to analyze trends, administer the site and help diagnose problems with our system software and servers. Unfortunately, because some of our online services are controlled and administered by another UNM department, we cannot guarantee that IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
A session is a collection of varibles created and stored by a Web server to keep track of your individual preferences. CAPS uses sessions on its website, and makes every effort to handle and store this information securely. After you leave the CAPS website, your session information is destroyed.
We do share user and aggregated information with the University of New Mexico's Office of Institutional Research.
Other Disclosure Of Personal Information
The CAPS website may contain links to sites on the Internet operated by others. CAPS cannot control and is not responsible for the privacy practices or content of such other web sites.
