Digital Data Disclaimer

These data are a product and property of NHNM and NHNM's data partners who have provided data for EnviroData-NM. These data are strictly "on loan" and should be considered "works in progress". Data maintained by NHNM database are an integral part of ongoing research and reflect the observations of many scientists, institutions and our current state of knowledge. These data are acquired from various sources, with varying levels of accuracy, and are continually being updated and revised. Many areas have never been surveyed and the absence of data in any particular geographic area does not necessarily mean that species or ecological communities of concern are not present. These data should not be regarded as a substitute for on-site surveys required for environmental assessments. Absence of evidence is NOT evidence of absence. Absence of any data does not mean that other resources of special concern do not occur, but rather NHNM files do not currently contain information to document this presence. NHNM and its data partners are not responsible for whether other, non-NHNM partner data providers have secured landowner permission for data collected.

Under no circumstances are data to be distributed in any fashion to outside parties, please refer all requests for the data to original owner/creator of the data resource as reflected in the metadata. To ensure accurate application of data, tabular and narrative components must be evaluated in conjunction with spatial components. Failure to do so constitutes a misuse of the data. NHNM and its data partners shall have no liability or responsibility to the data users, or any other person or entity with respect to liability, loss, or damage caused or alleged to be caused directly or indirectly by the data, including but not limited to any interruption of service, loss of business, anticipatory profits or indirect, special, or consequential damages resulting from the use of operation of the data. Data users hereby agree to hold NHNM, its data partners, the University of New Mexico, and the State of New Mexico harmless from any claim, demand, cause of action, loss, damage or expense from or related to data users use of or reliance on the data, regardless of the cause or nature thereof, and even in the event that such cause is attributable to the negligence or misconduct of NHNM.
