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...


                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.


                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.


                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.
