We may collect and store information for statistical purposes. For example, we may count the number of visitors to the different sections of our site to help us make our site more useful to visitors. You do not have to give us personal information to visit our site. If you do nothing during your visit but browse through the website and read pages, we will gather and store certain information about your visit automatically. This information does not identify you personally.
By sending us an electronic mail message, you may be sending us personal information (e.g., name, address, E-mail address). We may store the name and address of the requester in order to respond to the request or to otherwise resolve the subject matter of your E-mail. If you order weather data, we will enter the information you submit into our electronic database. This information will be used to fill your request and ship your data. In limited circumstances, including the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), we may be required by law to disclose information you submit.
For SITE SECURITY purposes and to ensure that 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.

A note on Data Timeliness & Quality
Data Timeliness: As a Global Data Center, NCDC makes every effort to update the dataset/product on this site as soon as possible, but does not guarantee updates
on a daily basis, due to many "upstream" issues beyond our control. Therefore, when the posting of data is running behind our normal schedule,
you may assume that problems resulted in a delay in the online data update. We will continue to make every effort to update our online data/products
as soon as possible.
