The U. S. Senate Server

The United States Senate server hosts the web sites of each individual U.S. Senator, the Senate committees, and other support services. Therefore, the committee's privacy policy inherits the security and privacy practices of the central Senate server. For site management, the Senate server collects information for statistical purposes. The government computer system software uses programs to create the summary statistics, which are used for such purposes as assessing what information is of most and least interest, determining technical design specifications, and identifying system performance or problem areas. The following is a list of specific information that is collected when you visit any United States Senate web site:

1. The domain from which you access the Senate web site.

2. The date and time of your visit

3. The address of the web site, if any, that provide the link from which you reached the site.

For site security purposes and to ensure that this service remains available to all users, this government computer system employs software programs to monitor network traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise cause damage.

Except for authorized law enforcement investigations, no other attempts are made to identify individual users or their usage habits. Raw data logs are used for no other purposes and are scheduled for regular destruction in accordance with National Archives and Records Administration guidelines.
For more information, please access the U.S. Senate Security and Privacy Notice.

External Links
The Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works web site has links to other useful sites on the Internet, including sites of other government agencies and sites relating to the activities of the committee. If you follow any link that takes you to a URL location other than, you have left the Senate web server and will need to refer to that site's own privacy policy.

Thank you for taking the time to review this policy. Please remember to contact the committee if you have any further questions.
