Tufts Now Privacy Policy

We are committed to protecting the privacy of our readers and subscribers. All information you provide will remain strictly confidential. Our email subscription form requires you to give us contact information such as name, email address and Tufts affiliation. We use the data you provide to send you the biweekly Tufts Now email newsletter or other information you may request. We do not make this information available to third parties outside of Tufts University. We will only share your information with other groups within Tufts University if you give us permission to do so.

Tufts Now uses Google Analytics to track website statistics. Google Analytics collects information anonymously and reports website trends without identifying individual visitors. We use the information collected to understand how our visitors are using the website and make improvements for a better online experience.

Google Analytics uses first-party cookies to track visitor interactions and collects the Internet protocol (IP) address of website visitors in order to provide us a sense of where our visitors come from, but Google Analytics does not report visitors’ actual IP address information to us.

We do not use Google Analytics to track or collect personal information (name, email address, billing information or other data that can be reasonably linked to such information) and we do not associate personal information with web analytics information.

We have not opted in for the Google Analytics Data Sharing Options, which is used by Google to improve its products and services.
