iEdison Privacy Notice

Every time you access an iEdison page within the "" domain, we collect information from your computer about your visit. This information is used to create a summary report that identifies items such as the date, time, origin and nature of requests, specific pages accessed, and the type of browser and operating system being used. Summary reports are only available to selected iEdison staff members, in an effort to help us understand overall trends of site users and to implement changes that will make our site more useful to visitors.

When inquiries are sent to us by e-mail, we store the question and the e-mail address so that we can respond electronically. Unless otherwise required by statute, we do not identify publicly who sends questions or comments to our web site. We will not collect information that will allow us to personally identify you when you visit our site, unless you chose to provide such information.

E-mail sent to iEdison is seen by the people who are responsible for answering your questions. Please remember that e-mail messages are not secure against interception. So, if your communication includes sensitive information like invention or patent-related information, you may prefer to contact us by postal mail or telephone rather than e-mail.
