Electronically Produced Data may use cookies and other tools to collect information about how you use the site. A cookie is a small, unique text file that a website can send to your computer hard drive when you visit a site. IDF may use “session cookies”, which terminate when a user closes his or her browser, and/or “persistent cookies”, which remain on the user's computer until manually deleted. Most web browsers can either alert you to the use of cookies or refuse to accept cookies entirely. If you do not want IDF to deploy cookies in your browser, you can set your browser to reject cookies or to notify you when a website tries to put a cookie on your computer. Rejecting cookies may affect your ability to use the site.

Action Tags.

Like most standard website servers, IDF may employ a software technology called action tags (also known as “web beacons”, “single pixel gifs”, “clear gifs” or “web bugs”), which collect information and help to manage cookies, in order to gather information about Site usage. Action tags help IDF identify and track the performance of web pages on the Site, therefore allowing IDF to measure the performance and quality of the Site and to manage Site content. In addition, IDF may use action tags in emails. This allows IDF to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications by showing, for example, how many emails have been opened.

IP Addresses. 

An IP address is a number that is assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. Like most standard website servers, IDF collects IP addresses and other technical information about your machine through your web browser such as your operating system, browser type and referring URL for the purposes of, among other things, system administration and to ensure the validity of user requests.

Log Files. 

Like most standard website servers, IDF gathers certain information automatically and stores it in log files, which contain information such as, among other things, IP addresses, browser type, operating system, ISP, date/time stamps and referring pages. Among other things, this information allows IDF to track statistics and trends on an aggregate basis.


IDF maintains physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect the confidentiality and security of any personally identifiable information that you disclose to IDF. IDF protects information both online and off-line. The transmission of information, including any payment information, is encrypted and protected using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL Stored customer information is kept in a secure environment where access is restricted to employees who need the information to perform a specific job. However, due to the nature of the Internet, computer networks, systems and other factors, no transmission of data over the Internet is guaranteed to be completely secure. It may be possible for third parties not under the control of IDF to intercept or access transmissions or private communications unlawfully, regardless of IDF’s best intentions. As such, IDF cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to IDF, including without limitation personally identifiable information.
