Privacy Policy

The Office of the Director of National Intelligence website (DNI.GOV or ODNI.GOV ) is provided as a public service by the ODNI on behalf of the Director of National Intelligence. This website does not collect personal information about you unless you choose to provide such information.

The content of this website may be browsed anonymously. For statistical purposes, this website automatically logs certain information about your visit,
such as:

  • The Internet Domain and Internet Protocol (IP) address from which you access our website.
  • The type of web browser and operating system of the computer used to access our site.

  • If you linked to our websites from another website, the address of that website.

This information does not identify you personally. The information gathered helps us to assess the content most interesting to visitors, determine technical design specifications, and identify system performance issues.


This website does not use persistent cookies. It does, however, use non-persistent or "session" cookies to make it easier for you to use the features on our web pages. Session cookies last only as long as your web browser remains open and are deleted from our servers as soon as you leave our website. The ODNI does not collect or maintain any information from your session cookies.

Personal Information

Any personal information you provide in the context of an inquiry or request for information will be used only to respond to your inquiry or request. We will not share your personal information with another government agency unless you have expressly requested we do so, or as otherwise required by law. In addition, the ODNI will not create individual profiles from your information or provide your information to any private organization for commercial purposes.

If you engage in a specialized business process through another ODNI-sponsored website (e.g., to submit a resume; to provide online comments, etc.) you will be informed of additional privacy procedures at the point of entry for that process.

Site Security

For site security purposes, and to ensure that this service remains available to all users, this government computer system monitors network traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, to defeat or circumvent a security feature, to interfere with system access or availability, or to cause damage or utilize this system for other than its intended purposes. Anyone using this system expressly consents to such monitoring and is advised that if such monitoring reveals evidence of possible abuse or criminal activity, such evidence may be provided to appropriate law enforcement officials.

Unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, to defeat or circumvent a security feature, to interfere with system access or availability, or to cause damage or utilize this system for other than its intended purposes, are strictly prohibited and may be punishable by law, including but not limited to the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (18 U.S.C. 1030) and the National Information Infrastructure Protection Act of 1996.

Except for authorized law enforcement investigations, no attempts are made to identify individual users or their usage habits.

Links to Other Sites

ODNI websites may contain information with links or pointers to information created and maintained by other U.S. government agencies and, in some instances, to state, local, tribal or private organizations. These links are provided as a service to you as a user. The ODNI neither controls nor guarantees the accuracy, relevance, timeliness, or completeness of information contained on another website. Once you link to another site, you will be notified that you are leaving the official ODNI website and will be subject to the privacy and security policies of the  website to which you are linking.
