Thank you for visiting.  The primary purpose of this website is to make available information related to the utilization and disposal of Federal real property.  Furnishing any information about you is voluntary, as is participation in any aspect of the real property disposal process.  

How we handle the information we gather when you visit our website

Our privacy policy is clear: Unless you choose to provide additional information to us, we will collect no personal information about you other than the information (below) which is automatically collected and stored when you visit our site:

Information automatically collected and stored

We collect only the following information about you:

  • the name of the domain from which you access the Internet (i.g., erols.com if you are connecting from an Erols account, or Harvard.edu if you are connecting from Harvard University's domain);
  • the date and time you access our site;
  • the item you requested from the server; and
  • the Internet address of the web site from which you linked directly to our site.
If you send us personal information

When you send us personal information (e.g., creating an account as part of the Subscription Services or to request information through an email request) we only use this information to provide periodic notifications and information regarding properties that are being disposed of. We may forward your e-mail to the government employee who can best answer your questions. We do not disclose, give, sell, or transfer any personal information about our visitors, unless required for law enforcement or statute.

We want to make it clear that we will not obtain personally identifying information about you when you visit our site, unless you choose to provide that information to us. Except for authorized law enforcement investigations, or as otherwise required by law, we do not share any information we receive with anyone else.

Links to other sites:

The documents posted on this Website may contain hypertext links or pointers to information created and maintained by other public and private organizations. These links and pointers are provided for visitors' convenience. GSA does not control or guarantee the accuracy, timeliness, or completeness of any linked information from non-GSA sites.

The inclusion of links or pointers to Web sites is not intended to assign importance to those sites or the information contained therein, nor is it intended to endorse or recommend any views expressed, or products or services offered on these sites.

Security:

For site security purposes and to ensure that this service remains available to all users, GSA webservers employ industry-standard methods to monitor network traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise cause damage. Unauthorized attempts to upload information or change information on GSA servers are strictly prohibited and may be punishable by law, including the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act of 1986 and the National Information Infrastructure Protection Act.

In the specific context of this security monitoring, there is no expectation of privacy. However, only in the case of actual law enforcement investigations, will we attempt to identify individual users or their usage habits.
