The CIARO - “Center for Intelligence Analysis, Research & Operations“ is committed to protecting your privacy and will collect no personal information about you unless you choose to provide that information to us.
To learn more about the CIARO procedures for protecting all personal information, including extensive explanation of the authorizations and limitations regarding such information, visit our page.
If you simply browse our website:
When you visit the CIARO website to browse information it contains, you do so anonymously unless you choose to provide us information about yourself. If you do nothing during your visit but browse through the website—reading pages or downloading information for example—we will gather and store certain information about your visit automatically. This information does not identify you personally.
This gathering and storing of information is separate from the activity described as monitoring in our Security Notice.
Information gathered automatically is used for, among other things, site management, compiling reports of usage statistics, and, in the case of suspected unauthorized activity, for law enforcement and possible criminal prosecution.
The following are representative of the types of information automatically collected and stored about your visit:
the Internet domain and Internet Protocol (IP) address from which you access our website;
the type of Internet browser and the operating system of the computer you use to access our site;
the date and time you visit our site;
the pages you visit on our site;
if you linked to our website from another website, the address of that website;
and, if you linked to our website from a search website, the address of that website and the search term you used.
If you submit a resume online:
The resume data you do submit will be used for employment consideration only and will be stored in an internal resume tracking system for one year. Your data is only available internally to a limited number of hiring officials and, unless you authorize the CIARO to share it with other federal hiring officials by answering 'yes' to the relevant question on the resume form, it will not be shared with any other people or organizations internally or externally. The only exception to this policy is described in our Security Notice below.
The authority for soliciting your Social Security Number (SSN) is Executive Order 9397. Since other people may have the same name and birth date, your SSN will be used to identify you precisely. Although disclosure of your SSN is not mandatory, your failure to do so will impede completion of your application.
If you send us an e-mail using our comment form:
Except as otherwise indicated, if you choose to submit a question or comment using our online form and provide us your name and e-mail or postal address, we will use that information only to respond to your question or comment.
We will not share your name, e-mail, or postal address with any third party, other than as described below in our Security Notice.
We will not create individual profiles with the information that you have provided.
Under no circumstances will we give your name, e-mail, or postal address to any any private organization, commercial or otherwise.
If you choose to offer information or assistance to the CIARO in the pursuit of its mission by using our online form, we will make appropriate inquiries to determine the accuracy of your information. In addition, we may share the information you provide with other appropriate entities to enable the CIARO to carry out its legally authorized responsibilities.
