Information Collected and Stored Automatically
When you browse the DRA Web site, certain information about your visit is gathered automatically. This information does not identify you personally. If you do nothing but browse through the site, read pages, or download information, DRA automatically compiles and stores only the following types of data about your visit:
- the date and time you access the DRA site;
- the pages you visit on the site;
- the length of your visit;
- the Internet domain and server Internet protocol (IP) addresses from which you access the DRA site;
- the Internet browser and operating system used to access the site;
- if you linked to the DRA site from a search site, the address of that Web site and the search term you used;
- the protocol version (HTTP, FTP) you used in accessing the DRA site;
- whether you were able to successfully access pages you requested; and
- if you linked to the DRA site from another Web site, the address of that Web site.
This information is gathered to help DRA make its site more useful to visitors-to determine the information visitors want and the types of technology they use. DRA does not collect data about individuals when they visit the site. Any data collected is compiled and reviewed in the aggregate.
Information Collected Via Forms
Forms may be provided on the DRA Web site to allow users to register online for conferences and events. These forms are always voluntary and are submitted to the DRA server by the user. The information collected is stored in registration databases used to generate conference mailings.
If you send email to DRA staff through the DRA Web site, the personal information you provide is used only to respond to your message. DRA does not disclose personal information outside of the agency without explicit permission.
A cookie is information that a Web site puts on your hard disk so that it can remember something about you. The DRA site uses a type of cookies called "session cookies," which disappear as soon as you close your browser. DRA uses these cookies to collect aggregate data about which sections of the site are used most and least. The session cookie allows you to be tracked as a number-not a name-only for the length of time that you are on the DRA site. The next time you visit the site, you will get a different random number. If you have any questions or concerns about how the DRA site uses session cookies, please contact the DRA Webmaster.

This practice does not constitute DRA's endorsement of the content of these Web sites or of other organizations' policies or products. Once users follow links or pointers to external sites, they are then subject to the privacy policies of those sites.
Concerns about the appropriateness of any links or pointers on the DRA site should be addressed to the DRA Webmaster.
