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

No individual identifying or personal information (such as your name) is automatically gathered when you visit any Senate web site. To learn more about the Senate's Internet security and privacy policy online, please go to this address:
