2.    Information we collect, how we collect it, and how we use it:

a.    Website Visitors. Like most website operators, E-File Magic collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. We collect this information automatically as you navigate to and through the Website, and do so using cookies, web beacons, and other tracking technologiesf (these technologies are described more fully below). Our primary purpose for collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how visitors to the Website reach the Website and use it. From time to time, E-File Magic may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its Website.

E-File Magic also automatically collects personal information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses from its Website visitors. IP addresses may be correlated with general physical location in some instances, so we may learn your general location through our collection of IP addresses. We may use this geographic information to learn where (generally) our customers are located.

You may also voluntarily provide personal information when requesting a sales consultation, additional information on E-File Magic’s products or services, or technical support through the Website. 

E-File Magic’s automatic data-collection technologies are described briefly below:

                                          i.         Cookies (or browser cookies). A cookie is a small file placed on the hard drive of your computer or device. You may refuse to accept browser cookies by activating the appropriate setting on your browser. However, if you select this setting you may be unable to access certain parts of the Website. Unless you have adjusted your browser setting so that it will refuse cookies, our system will issue cookies when you direct your browser to our Website.

                                         ii.         Web Beacons. Web beacons are small graphic images or other programming code (also known as "1×1 GIFS," "pixel tags," or "clear GIFs"). We may include web beacons in our Website pages and email messages. Web beacons may be used to count visitors to the Website, to monitor how users navigate the Website, and to count how many emails that we send are actually opened.

                                        iii.         Do Not Track.  Some browsers incorporate a "Do Not Track" (DNT) feature that, when turned on, signals to websites and online services that you do not want to be tracked. At this time, our Website does not respond to DNT signals.

                                       iv.         Google Analytics and the Facebook Pixel. We utilize Google Analytics, the Facebook pixel, and other third-party tracking software and systems to assist in gauging Website traffic patterns, daily visitor volume, and overall access patterns and visitor origination points. We use reasonable efforts to ensure the information provided to these third parties does not contain directly identifying information such as name, tax identification number, address, etc., but some information—such as IP addresses—may be provided to these third parties. For example, we comply with the requirements imposed by Google LLC to utilize Google Analytics. You may opt-out of certain Google service features, such as through your device advertising settings, or by following the instructions provided by Google in its privacy policy: You can learn more about the Facebook pixel by visiting and

                                         v.         Ad-Serving Platforms. We utilize third party ad-serving platforms (e.g., Google Ads and Facebook ads), which may provide us with information on your interaction with our ads on those platforms.
