We do not use cookies to collect any personally identifying information on this web site.

"Personal information" is information about an individual that is readily identifiable to that specific individual. Personal information includes personal identifiers such as an individual's name, address, phone number, driver’s license number and social security number. A domain name or Internet Protocol address is not considered personal information. We collect no personal information about you unless you voluntarily participate in an activity that asks for information (e.g., sending an e-mail or participating in a survey). If personal information is requested on the web site or volunteered by the user, state law and the federal Privacy Act of 1974 may protect it. However, this information is a public record once you provide it, and may be subject to public inspection and copying if not protected by federal or state law. Users are cautioned that the collection of personal information requested from or volunteered by children on-line or by email will be treated the same as information given by an adult and may be subject to public access.

IFA analyzes its web site logs to continually improve the value of the materials available on its web site. IFA’s web site logs are not personally identifiable, and we make no attempt to link them with the individuals that browse the IFA web site.

If you do nothing during your visit to the IFA website but browse or download information, we automatically collect and store the following information about your visit: (1) The Internet Protocol address and domain name used but not the email address.

We use the Internet Protocol address to direct Internet traffic to you; (2) The type of browser and operating system you used and your connection speed; (3) The date and time you visited this site; and (4) The web pages or services you accessed at this site.
