How EDC Collects and Uses Information

Resale or disclosure of information to third parties Some EDC Web sites maintain mailing list databases of personally identifiable information that users voluntarily supply (e.g., names, e-mail addresses, phone numbers, street addresses, and areas of interest). This information is used to inform those who have opted to receive news and information about our organization's events or to pre-populate forms with your information.

EDC does not sell, rent, or lease any personal information collected through our sites. On occasion, we may share personal information with other organizations that have missions and activities similar to ours. A specific EDC project or program also may share personal information with other programs of EDC or with affiliated organizations.

If you do not want EDC to share your personal information, our registration page allows you to opt out. To change your personal information in our database, please e-mail us at

Use of "cookies": Some EDC Web sites may use a feature called a "cookie" to assign a unique identification to your computer when you log in to the site. Cookies allow the Web site to recognize you as logged in. When you visit an EDC Web site, EDC may record information about your User ID, browser, and IP address in its Web site logs. EDC analyzes its Web site logs to constantly improve the value of the materials available on our sites. Any information collected is used to identify problems or improve our services and Web site content. EDC will not use "cookies" to retrieve personal information about you from your computer.

Information from e-mail If you choose to e-mail us and provide personally identifiable information about yourself, we will not use the information for any purpose other than to respond to your inquiry.

Surveys, forms and online questionnaires Some EDC Web sites or mail lists may post, either permanently or at various intervals, surveys used to collect information for evaluation purposes. Unless otherwise stated, this information is used to look at group trends, and there is no identification of individual respondents.
