Website Privacy Policy

The Energy Information Administration Single Sign On is provided as a public service by EIA to facilitate the reporting of energy data.

Information EIA Collects:

If you visit this site to submit data, you should know that EIA collects and stores a standard set of Internet-related information, such as an Internet Protocol (IP) address, the date and time, the type of browser and operating system used, the page(s) visited, and if you linked to the EIA Web site from another Web site, the address of that Web site. All information is collected to help EIA make this site more useful to our customers and is only used for statistical purposes.

Sending Personal Information:

The personal information you provide EIA when registering for an SSO identity is used only to contact you in case of a problem with the site or in response to your inquiry. EIA does not give, sell, or transfer personal information to third parties, unless required by law, such as the Freedom of Information Act.

Cookie Use Notice:

The Energy Information Administration employs “cookies” to provide better service to its customers. EIA does not use cookies to collect any personally identifying information from users or to track user activities beyond our website. EIA does not maintain copies of cookies after you leave our website.

Cookies are small pieces of temporary data that are exchanged between a website and a user’s computer which enable a “session” or “dialog” to be established between the two machines. With the session established, EIA is able to tailor its responses and help you traverse our web pages in the most efficient and effective manner possible. The session is most often broken when EIA’s server does not receive further requests from your computer or you exit your browser.

EIA limits its use of cookies to “session cookies”—types of cookies that are temporarily stored in your computer’s memory. EIA does not use “persistent cookies”—types of cookies that could be stored permanently on your computer and reused each time you visit this website.

Security, Intrusion, and Detection:

For site security purposes, and to ensure 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.

Operations Security Program:

The Energy Information Administration maintains a program (Operations Security [OPSEC]) that is designed to protect information collected in EIA's surveys. This Program takes the form of various elements such as: staff security training, pre-hire certification, and integrity of EIA data systems, fair practice data disclosure policies, and the physical security of all sensitive unclassified EIA data. If you have any questions concerning this program, please contact Paul Staller, (202) 586-6543.

Questions About the Privacy Policy:

If you have any questions or comments about this privacy policy or the confidentiality provisions for information submitted on EIA's survey forms, please contact Patricia Breed, 202-586-2510.
