Privacy Policy

We are committed to the privacy of our visitors and customers. We collect no personal information about you when you visit our Website unless you choose to provide that information to us. Here is how we handle information about your visit to our Website.


Information Collected and Stored Automatically

If you do nothing during your visit but browse through the Website, read pages or download information, we may gather and store certain information about your visit automatically.


This information does not identify you personally. We may automatically collect and store information like the following concerning your visit. The Internet domain (for example, "yourcompany.com" if you use a private Internet access account, or "yourschool.edu" if you connect from a university's domain); Your IP address (an IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web) from which you access our Website. The type of browser and operating system used to access our site; The date and time you access our site; The pages you visit; and If you linked to our Website from another Website, the address of that Website. We use this information to help us make our site more useful to visitors and customers—to learn about the number of visitors to our site and the types of technology our visitors use.

Information Protection
For site security purposes and to ensure that this service remains available to all users, this private computer system employs software programs to monitor network traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise cause damage. If such monitoring reveals evidence of possible abuse or criminal activity, such evidence may be provided to appropriate law enforcement officials. Unauthorized attempts to upload or change information on this server are strictly prohibited and may be punishable under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act of 1986 and the National Information Infrastructure Protection Act or other law.

Information That You Voluntarily Provide
We do not collect personally-identifiable information unless you choose to provide it to us. If you provide us with personally identifiable information, for example by sending an e-mail or by filling out a form and submitting it through our Website or by purchasing a product or service, we use that information only to respond to your message and to help us provide you with the information and services that you request. Submitting voluntary information constitutes your consent to the use of the information for the stated purpose. When a user clicks the "Submit" button on any of the Web forms found on our site they are indicating voluntary consent to use of the information they submit for the stated purpose. We never collect or use information for commercial marketing and will never sell your personal information without your explicit approval.

How Information is Used
The information we collect is used for a variety of purposes (e.g., process orders, contact customers). We make every effort to disclose clearly how information is used at the point where it is collected so that our users can determine for themselves whether they wish to provide the information.

Sharing of Information
In other limited circumstances, such as responses to requests from Congress and private individuals, we may be required by law to disclose information you submit. Before you submit personally identifiable information, such as on an online form, you will be advised as to the purpose and how the information will be used.

Retention of Information
We destroy the information we collect when the purpose for which it was provided has been fulfilled unless we are required to keep it longer by statute or official policy. Electronically submitted information is maintained and destroyed according to the principles of the Federal Records Act and the regulations and records schedules approved by the National Archives and Records Administration, and in some cases information submitted to us may become an agency record and therefore might be subject to a Freedom of Information Act request.

Links to Other Sites
This site may have links to the Websites of other federal agencies. There may be links to private organizations, with their permission. Once you go to another site, you are subject to the privacy policy of the new site. It is always a good idea to read the Privacy Policy of any Website that you visit.

Cookies
"Cookies" are small bits of text that are either used for the duration of a session ("session cookies"), or saved on a user's hard drive in order to identify that user, or information about that user, the next time the user logs on to a Website ("persistent cookies"). This Website does not use persistent cookies or any other persistent tracking technology. One or more of our component sites may use session cookies to provide streamlined navigation. These session cookies are deleted from the component's server after your session ends and information from them is not collected or saved.
