Effective Date: August 1, 2012
National Rural Utilities Cooperative Finance Corporation ("CFC") provides information through public websites and enables secure online account access through CFC's private websites that require authentication. The CFC private websites that require authentication shall be known as the “Restricted Sites” and refer to those portions of our websites that are secure, non-public and accessible only after a user has registered and been authorized by CFC. The Restricted Sites, together with the portions of CFC’s websites that are available to the general public without the need to register, are collectively referred to as the “CFC Websites”.
The CFC Websites contain proprietary and/or confidential information that is protected by applicable intellectual property and other laws. You may view and download materials and content from the CFC Websites according to your authorized account permissions and use such materials and content solely for informational and non-commercial purposes or as otherwise permitted by CFC in writing, provided that you (i) keep all copyright and other proprietary notices intact, and (ii) do not (and do not allow any third party to) copy, modify, distribute, transmit, reproduce, display, publish, license, create derivative works from, sell, lease, otherwise exploit for commercial purposes, transfer, assign, or otherwise make unauthorized or improper use of the CFC Websites and any information and materials obtained from them.
Online User Account Security and Passwords
Authorized Users of the Restricted Sites are provided access to available online data according to their authorized account permissions, by way of an online subscriber identification name, or User ID, and a password selected by the User. Users agree to keep these passwords private and further agree to refrain from sharing the passwords with any unauthorized person or allowing any unauthorized person to log onto or use the Restricted Sites. Passwords must be kept secure and should not be revealed over the phone, in an unencrypted e-mail message or in writing and should not be stored on a portable data storage device, such as a laptop, flash drive, tablet or mobile phone. You are solely responsible for any unauthorized use of your User ID and password.
Please notify CFC promptly if you become aware that any password information or any area of the CFC Websites has been compromised, or if you become aware of any unauthorized access to an account, whether or not such access was by someone who is generally authorized to access the system or is authorized to access other accounts.
Access to Other Online User Accounts
Each User's access to the Restricted Sites is limited to that portion of such CFC Websites for which the User has authorized account permissions. If any User obtains unauthorized access to data or information that it knows, or reasonably should know, to be outside the area of its authorization, whether accessed through inadvertent or other means, the User shall immediately exit the area and is prohibited from saving or storing, maintaining or making any use of, printing, sending, sharing, publishing or otherwise disseminating any data or information so accessed.

Any description or reference to non-CFC products or services in the CFC Websites is for informational purposes only and shall not constitute an endorsement or a recommendation of such products or services by CFC.
The CFC Websites contain trademarks of CFC and its third party licensors.
