You are accessing a U.S. Government information system, which includes: 1) this computer, 2) this computer network, 3) all computers connected to this network, and 4) all devices and storage media attached to this network or to a computer on this network. You understand and consent to the following: you may access this information system for authorized use only; you have no reasonable expectation of privacy regarding any communication of data transiting or stored on this information system; at any time and for any lawful Government purpose, the Government may monitor, intercept, and search and seize any communication or data transiting or stored on this information system; and any communications or data transiting or stored on this information system may be disclosed or used for any lawful Government purpose.



The OWM does not release your personal information without your consent. We may publish your name; title; employer name; business address, phone (and fax) number(s); and email in class participant lists and membership lists for national or other working groups if appropriate (e.g., to disclose who is participating in the activity or to enable other participants to contact you following the meeting); and, if applicable, it may also be published in an attendee list in reports on meetings of the National Conference on Weights and Measures. If you are a Federal, state or local weights and measures official, we may also publish your information in an “online” or “print” directory of weights and measures officials. As a public service, we may share your contact information with members of the public to respond to business or consumer inquiries (e.g., a complaint and other weights and measures related request) in your jurisdiction, or involving your jurisdiction or organization, so the parties can contact you directly for assistance. We may also use your personal and other information to determine your eligibility to participate in a training class and we may share it with the instructor, training host or other participants for use in organizing or providing a training or other activity. If you are eligible to participate in the activities sponsored by the OWM, your information will be used to process your registration, create a name badge and other identifying materials. In addition to the disclosures described above, we may also use your personal information to create training certificates and maintain a record of your attendance or to update records related to training. Except as required by law, we will not share your personal information, training record or examination results with a third party (e.g., employer or other entity) without first receiving a written request and obtaining your written consent. If you visit NIST in Gaithersburg, Maryland, your personal information may be used to register you in the NIST Visitor Registration System so you can access the NIST campus.


Under Federal privacy laws and NIST policies the OWM must obtain your consent before collecting, using or disclosing your personally identifiable information as described above. To create an account in the OWM Contacts System you must provide your name, address, email address, and work telephone number. Furnishing this information is voluntary; however, if you do not consent you cannot create an account and you will not be registered for a training class or have access to the features of the OWM Contacts System described above. You may also provide supplementary information such as an alternative shipping location or alternative email (we encourage weights and measures officials to also furnish their position title and agency name) but sharing this information is optional. When you submit your personal information to the OWM Contacts System you are voluntarily giving the OWM your consent to use that information and other data (e.g., a user’s training history is automatically added to an account upon successful completion of training) associated with your username for the purposes described above.
