Personally Identifiable Information
If you send us an electronic mail message with a question or comment that contains personally identifying information, or fill out a form that provides us this information, we will only use the personally-identifiable information to respond to your request and analyze trends. We may redirect your message to another person who is in a better position to answer your question. Some departments include forms to be submitted in regard to acceptance into the school or their individual program and are reviewed by admittance committees. In regard to filling out forms, you will be given a chance to "opt out" of completing the form.

Google Analytics is an industry standard. 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 nmt.edu browsing behavior.
