This notice discloses our privacy policy and information practices.

The Connecticut Department of Labor policy is to respect and protect the privacy of our Web site users, consistent with the applicable laws of the United States and the State of Connecticut, including the Connecticut Freedom of Information Act and the Connecticut Personal Data Act. We do not collect, use, or disclose any information about our users without their knowledge and approval. We do not share user information with third parties unless we have informed users about the disclosures or when we have prior consent.

The following information is collected and stored automatically from all users accessing the Connecticut Education & Training ConneCTion Web pages to browse or download information:

  • The Internet domain and Internet Protocol address from which you access our site
  • The type of browser and operating system used to access our site
  • The date and time you access our site
  • The pages you visit
  • If you linked to Connecticut Education & Training ConneCTion from another Web site, the address of that Web site

This information is used to create summary statistics, which are used for purposes such as assessing what information is of most interest to users, determining technical design specifications, and identifying system performance or problem areas.

This information is not reported or used in any manner that would reveal personally identifiable information, and will not be released to any outside (third) parties unless legally required.

Personal Information You Provide to Us

The Connecticut Education & Training ConneCTion does not obtain personally identifiable information about you when you visit the Web site unless you choose to provide such information to us (i.e., sending an email, responding to a feedback form, or contacting us, etc.)

We consider any information that could reasonably be used to identify you as personally identifying information. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Your name
  • Your address
  • Your email address

The Connecticut Department of Labor may request personally identifiable information from you in order to provide requested services, but such information is handled as it would be on an in-person visit to a Connecticut Department of Labor office.

If personal information is requested on the Web site or volunteered by the user, state law and the federal Privacy Act of 1974 may protect it. However, this information is a public record once you provide it, and may be subject to public inspection and copying if not protected by federal or state law.

Email Communications and Web Forms

If you send us an electronic mail message with a question or comment that contains personally identifying information, or fill out a form on our site, we will only use this personally identifying information to respond to your request. We may redirect your message to another government agency or person who is in a better position to answer your question.

All email addresses collected by Connecticut Department of Labor contain the names of people who voluntarily communicated with or requested information from us. Email addresses are not sold, leased, or shared with any governmental or commercial entities without their consent. When a user has given us their email address for purposes of communicating or requesting information, that communication becomes part of the public record and may be subject to public inspection and copying if not protected by federal or state law.

Does Connecticut Education & Training ConneCTion use Cookies?

We do not use cookies to collect information on the Connecticut Education & Training ConneCTion site. A cookie is a text file, not a program, which is sent to your computer when you access a site. Cookies do not disclose your name or email address to a Web site. They can only tell a Web site if you have visited before and can pass short bits of information from the Web site back to itself the next time you visit.

Does The Connecticut Department of Labor Share The Information It Receives With Anyone?

Except as provided for by applicable state and federal laws, we do not collect, use, or disclose user information without their knowledge and approval. We do not share user information with third parties unless we have informed users about the disclosures or have their prior consent.

The Connecticut Education & Training ConneCTion does not obtain personally identifiable information about you when you visit our Web site unless you choose to provide such information to us (i.e., sending an email, submitting a feedback form, or contacting us, etc.). We do not disclose, sell, lease, or provide any personal information about our users to any other government or commercial entity for any purpose.

However, it is important to understand that under applicable state and federal law, various forms of correspondence and other communications may be subject to disclosure.
