Information Collected and Stored Automatically
If you do nothing during your visit but browse through the website, read pages, or download information, we will gather and store certain information about your visit automatically. This information does not identify you personally. We automatically collect and store only the following information about your visit:
The Internet domain (for example, "xcompany.com" if you use a private Internet access account, or "yourschool.edu" if you connect from a university's domain) and 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 the USA Freedom Corps website from another website, the address of that website.
We use this information to help us make our site more useful to visitors -- to learn about the number of visitors to our site and the types of technology our visitors use. We do not track or record information about individuals and their visits.
If You Send Us Personal Information
If you choose to provide us with personal information by sending an e-mail to the President or someone else in the USA Freedom Corps, or by filling out a form with your personal information and submitting it through our website, we use that information to respond to your message and to help us provide you with information that you request. We do not collect personal information for any other purposes. The information you provide is not given to any private organizations or private persons. The USA Freedom Corps does not collect or use information for commercial marketing.
We would share your e-mail with another federal government agency only if your inquiry related to that agency or if we were required to do so by law. The Presidential Records Act requires us to maintain some documents, including e-mails, received by the USA Freedom Corps and requires public disclosure of some of these documents twelve years after President Bush leaves office. In addition, we would release documents, including e-mails, if required to do so by a congressional or judicial subpoena.
A Record of Service
Your e-mail address is only used because it is the best way for you to sign in with a unique identity that's easy to remember. No e-mail will be sent to you unless you ask for it. We do not share e-mail addresses with third-parties, other than to manage our database.
