User-Supplied Information: There are several areas in the Web Site where we collect personal information from you on a voluntary basis. Personal information is information about you that is personally identifiable that is not otherwise publicly available, such as your name, address, e-mail address, mailing address, gender, date of birth, or phone numbers.

Like many other sites, The Ed Fund records this basic information about visits to its Web Site.
The Ed Fund may also collect passive data, such as clickstream data or a user’s Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, operating system, browser type, time and date of visit and page views. Clickstream data is a term defined to include a record of clicked selections within The Ed Fund Web Site.

Similar pixel tags on the Web Site will permit us to count users and collect additional information to improve the content of our Web Site, diagnose problems with our equipment, administer the Web Site and provide related services.
You should remember that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online, such as on message boards, through e-mail, discussion groups, or in chat areas, your information can be collected and used by others. Although The Ed Fund tries to protect your personal information, The Ed Fund cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.
