The key phrase here is "When logged on". It doesn't say anything about tracking your computer after you leave the site.

I work for the federal government and the web site I use to check my pay checks ( has a nearly identical disclaimer. As does nearly every application I use on my computer at work. It's not a big deal and these two people are blowing it way out of proportion. And before anybody blames this on Barack Obama, they used the same disclaimers when Bush was president and probably also used them when Clinton was president too. People are already making those comments on that YouTube video. It's pretty much a standard disclaimer the federal government uses and they do have a right to protect their computer systems.
