Title: Standards.gov Privacy Statement

Standards.gov Privacy Statement

Thanks for visiting the Standards.gov website and reviewing our privacy policy. Our privacy policy is plain and simple. We collect NO personal information like names or addresses when you visit our website, unless that information is required to fulfill your request for information - in which case your submission of such information is voluntary.

We do collect some technical information when you visit to make your visit seamless. The section below explains how we handle and collect technical information when you visit our website.

Information Collected and Stored Automatically

When you browse, read pages or download information on Standards.gov, we automatically gather and store certain technical information about your visit. This information never identifies who you are. The information we collect and store about your visit is listed below:

This information is only used to help us make the site more useful for you. With this data we learn about the number of visitors to our site and the types of technology our visitors use. We never track or record information about individuals and their visits.

Cookies

When you visit some websites, their webservers generate pieces of information known as cookies. Some cookies collect personal information to recognize your computer in the future. This is not the case at Standards.gov, where we only use non-persistent cookies or "per-session cookies." These cookies do not collect personal information on users and they are erased as you close your browser.

Per-session cookies serve technical purposes like providing seamless navigation through Standards.gov. These cookies do not permanently record data and they are not stored on your computer's hard drive. Standards.gov cookies are stored in memory and are only available during an active browser session. Again, once you close your browser, the cookie disappears.

If You Send Us Personal Information

If you choose to provide us with personal information – like filling out a Contact Us form with an e-mail address and zip code and submitting it to us through the website – we use that information to respond to your message and to help us get you the information you have requested. We only share the information you give us with another government agency if your inquiry relates to that agency, or as otherwise required by law. Standards.gov never collects information for commercial marketing.

While you must provide an e-mail address and zip code for a localized response to any incoming questions or comments to Standards.gov, we recommend that you NOT include any other personal information, especially Social Security numbers. The Social Security Administration offers additional guidance on sharing your Social Security number.
