How we handle the information we gather when you visit our website
Information automatically collected and stored
We collect only the following information about you: the name of the domain from which you access the Internet (i.e., erols.com if you are connecting from an Erols account, or Harvard.edu if you are connecting from Harvard University’s domain); the date and time of your visit; the pages you visit on gsa.gov; and the Internet address of the website you came from if it linked you directly to RegInfo.gov.
If your browser accepts cookies, we may use a session cookie to decide if you are a repeat or a new visitor. We also use session cookies so we can learn how many different visitors come to RegInfo.gov. We use this information for statistical purposes and to help us make our site more useful to you. When we look at this data, it is always presented in an aggregate form. We do not track or look at an individual’s use of our site.
If you send us personal information
If you send us personal information (e.g., in an electronic mail message containing a question or comment) or by filling out a form that e-mails us this information, we use this information to only respond to your request. We may forward your e-mail to the government employee who can best answer your questions. We do not disclose, give, sell, or transfer any personal information about our visitors, unless required for law enforcement or by statute.
We want to make it clear that we will not obtain personally identifying information about you when you visit our site, unless you choose to provide that information to us. Except for authorized law enforcement investigations, or as otherwise required by law, we do not share any information we receive with anyone else.

The pages on RegInfo.gov may include hypertext links or pointers to information created and maintained by other public and private organizations. These links and pointers are provided for our visitors’ convenience. RegInfo.gov does not control or guarantee the accuracy, timeliness, or completeness of any information from non-RegInfo.gov sites. The inclusion of links and pointers to websites is not intended to assign importance to those sites or to the information contained on those sites. It is also not intended to endorse or recommend any views expressed or products or services offered on these sites.
For site security purposes and to ensure that this service remains available to all users, RegInfo.gov webservers use industry-standard methods to monitor network traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise cause damage. Unauthorized attempts to upload information or change information on RegInfo.gov servers are strictly prohibited and may be punishable by law, including the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act of 1986 and the National Information Infrastructure Protection Act.
