Thank you for visiting the U.S. Department of Education's ED Pubs website and reviewing
you unless you choose to provide that information to us. We do not give, share,
sell, or transfer any personal information to a third party. Some of our web pages
let you voluntarily submit personal information. In those cases, we will provide
a specific notice before you begin submitting any personal information, explaining
how your information will be safeguarded. If you want to know more about how we
record non-personal information about your visit or how we use information that
you voluntarily submit, read on.
2. Non-personal Information We Record
If you do nothing during your visit but browse through the website, read pages,
or download information, our website's operating system will automatically record
some general information about your visit. During your visit, our web operating
system will record:
On certain ED Pubs web pages, we use "cookies" to help you use our websites interactively.
A cookie is a small file that a website transfers to your computer's hard disk,
usually to keep track of you while you are connected to that site. The cookies on
ED web pages do not collect information about you, but only about your browser "session."
The cookie makes it easier for you to use the dynamic features of these web pages,
without having to provide the same information again as you move from one page to
another. To protect your privacy, be sure to close your browser completely after
concerned about the potential use of information gathered from your computer by
cookies, you can set your browser to prompt you before it accepts a cookie. Most
Internet browsers have settings that let you identify and/or reject cookies.
4. Information from E-mail You Send to Us
If you decide to send us an electronic mail message (e-mail), the message will usually
contain your return e-mail address. If you wish us to address a specific situation,
please include only the Order Identification number.(We can extract all other details
about that order via that number.) In other limited circumstances, including requests
from Congress or limited other parties, we may be required by law to disclose information
that you submit. Also, e-mail is not necessarily secure against interception. Please
send only information necessary to help us process your request.
5. Information Collected from Interactive Forms
On some of our web pages we offer interactive forms that let you voluntarily submit
personal information (such as your e-mail address, name, or organization). This
occurs when you are ordering publications from ED Pubs or submitting comments. In
those cases, all submitted information is used only for the expressed purposes for
which it is intended and is not made available to any third party.
6. Links to Other Sites
Our policy discloses the privacy practices for the ED Pubs website. But ED Pus provides
links to other websites. When you leave the ED Pubs website (http://edpubs.ed.gov),
you will be going to sites that are beyond our control. These other sites may send
their own cookies to users, collect data, or solicit personal information. The privacy
policies and procedures described here for ED Pubs do not apply to any external
links. We encourage you to read the privacy policies of any site you link to from
ours, especially if you share any personal information. Be informed. You are the
person best qualified to protect your own privacy.
If you have questions about this policy, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
