Third Party Sites and Applications
Our site contains links to social networks and third-party websites. We use social networks to interact with foreign audiences and for our international public diplomacy engagements. Social networking sites are used to publish the Embassy's activities and connect with the public. We also use statistical methods and customization technologies to quantify the number of visitors to our sites and their various sections, and to make our site more useful to visitors. In some cases, the third-party application may request an email address, user name, password and geographical location for registration purposes. We do not use third party websites to solicit and collect personal data from individuals. We do not collect or store any personal data collected by a third party site. No personal data is disclosed, sold or transferred to any entity outside the State Department, except as required by law or as authorized by law.
We can use different types of online surveys to collect opinions and comments on a random sample of visitors. For the most part, the State Department uses ForeSee Results' Custorm American Satisfaction Index (ACSI) online surveys on an ongoing basis to obtain feedback and data on the level of satisfaction of visitors to our sites. This survey does not collect any personal data. Although the invitation to participate in the survey appears as a pop-up window for a random sample of visitors, it is optional, unlike all embassies. If you decline the offer to participate in this survey, you will have access to the same resources and information on our sites as those who participated in the survey. The results of the survey are only available to webmasters and other designated staff who need them as part of their responsibilities. We may conduct other time-limited surveys for other purposes, which will be explained when they are published.
