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.
If You Send Senator Casey Personal Information
This web site is set up not to collect any personal information about you when you visit the site unless you choose to provide that information to Senator Casey. This web site has a number of online web forms that you can use to contact Senator Casey by sending me an electronic mail message expressing your views or concerns or asking for assistance with a particular problem involving a federal agency. To send the Senator an email, the online web form asks you for your name, address, email address, and, if you wish, your telephone number. Our office uses this information provided by you to contact you in response to your correspondence with the Senator. This information will be available to members of the Senator's official staff so they can help in responding to your message or request. If you recieve any correspondence from Senator Casey's official Senate office that is not in response to a message you sent to the Senator, you will have the option to unsubscribe from any future contact within that message.
If you are requesting help with a casework matter, it also may be necessary for our office to share the information you provide with the government agency from which you are requesting assistance, and you will receive a request for release before any information is shared. Other than when needed to perform constituent casework at your request, or in the course of an authorized law enforcement investigation or emergency posing an imminent risk to public safety, our office will share no personal information communicated through this web site with any outside organization or individual.
Senator Casey's office tabulates comments received through the web site concerning legislation and government policy issues so that the Senator will be fully informed about the views of Pennsylvanians. From time to time, the Senator may come across a comment made by a constituent, or a situation described by a constituent, in an e-mail message (as well as postal mail, phone calls, and faxes) that he feels makes a point of such general interest that he would like to refer to it in a speech, or include it in the Congressional Record, or make some other use of it, either in connection with debate in the Senate or by sharing it with the relevant government agency. Our staff makes every effort in such cases to contact the author first. If you intend your message to be confidential and would prefer that it not be used in such a way, please feel free to advise us of your preference in the message. In this way, this office can be sure to respect your wishes and see that your views are held entirely within this office.
