information is also collected when you visit any U.S. House of Representatives
website: the domain from which you access the House website, the date and
time of your visit, the pages you visit, and the address of the website
that provided the link from which you reached the House site. This information
is gathered only for the purpose of enabling Members of Congress to improve
