Let us describe more specifically the type of information that may be gathered when you visit our web site and how that information is handled.
Information Collected and Stored Automatically
The U.S. Senate collects aggregate data about visits to Senate web sites, such as statistics that show which parts of each web site were visited the most. The following information is also collected when you visit any U.S. Senate web site: the domain from which you access the Senate web site, the date and time of your visit, the pages you visit, and the address of the web site, if any, that provided the link from which you reached the Senate site. This information is gathered only for the purpose of enabling us to improve the online service we provide to visitors to Senate web sites.
No individual identifying or personal information
If You Send Us Personal Information
This web site is set up not to collect any personal information about you when you visit the site unless you choose to provide that information to us. Information provided will be treated confidentially by my staff and me.
When you request our assistance in resolving an issue, the information you provide may be shared with other government agencies only when necessary to resolve your issue.
The information you provide us will be released to law enforcement agencies if threatening or other potentially unlawful communications are made.
