NASA Web Site Statements, Warnings, and Disclaimers

Following are statements about NASA's policies with regard to our Web sites. They contain information concerning your privacy, the security of our resources, the accessibility of Web site material, and links to other sites.


Privacy Statement

This policy establishes how NASA will use information we gather about you from your visit to our Web site. The privacy of our customers is of utmost importance to NASA.

If you visit a NASA site...

  1. To read or download information:

    We may collect and store information for statistical purposes. For example, we may count the number of visitors to the different sections of our site to help us make them more useful to visitors. Similar information is gathered for anonymous ftp, remote account login, or for other comparable types of connections.

  2. To send us an E-mail:

    By sending us an electronic mail message, you may be sending us personal information (e.g., name, address, E-mail address), as in an official FOIA request. We may store the name and address of the requester in order to respond to the request or to otherwise resolve the subject matter of your E-mail.

  3. To register:

    Some of our sites ask visitors who request specific information to fill out a registration form. For example, vendors looking for marketing opportunities by visiting our NASA Acquisition Internet Service sites may be asked to "register" to obtain email notices of business opportunities. Other information which may be collected at these sites through questionnaires, feedback forms, or other means, enable us to determine a visitor's interests, with the goal of providing better service to our customers.

We want to be very clear: regardless of the information being transmitted to NASA, we will protect all such information consistent with applicable law.
