Privacy Policy on User Information:

The Federal Public Defender, District of Connecticut does not collect personally identifiable information about individuals except when individuals specifically provide such information on a voluntary basis. Personal identifiable information on individual users will not be sold or otherwise transferred to third parties without the approval of the user at the time of collection.

Additionally, users should be aware that non-personal information may be automatically collected through the use of "cookies". Most web browsers have a feature that will allow the user to accept or deny a cookie. The users should be aware, however, that the use of such cookies may be necessary to provide the user with certain features available on our site.

Upon request, the Federal Public Defender, District of Connecticut will use reasonable efforts to allow users to update/correct personal information previously submitted which the user states as erroneous to the extent such activities will not compromise privacy or security interests. Also, upon a user's request, the Federal Public Defender, District of Connecticut will use commercially reasonable efforts to functionally delete the user and his or her personal information from its database; however, it may be impossible to delete a user's entry without some residual information because of backups and records of deletions.
