iD Editor is an open source OpenStreetMap editor. You are not required to use iD in order to use or edit OpenStreetMap, and the OpenStreetMap Foundation does not operate iD. You can learn more about OpenStreetMap and the OpenStreetMap Foundation at https://www.openstreetmap.org/about and https://wiki.osmfoundation.org/wiki/Main_Page. You can learn more about the iD Editor project and its maintainers at https://github.com/openstreetmap/iD.
Logging into OpenStreetMap
In order to make edits using iD, you must be logged into your OpenStreetMap account. You may do so via the OpenStreetMap website or a number of third-party login services. That use is governed by the respective privacy policies of the login method you choose.

Details on that are here.
Background imagery and other third party services
If you use background or streetside imagery to aid your edits, your browser must fetch information and images from a third-party imagery host. That use is governed by the respective privacy policies of each imagery host. The Editor Layer Index and iD Editor GitHub code provides detailed information as to imagery layer available in iD. In addition, you may use third party services to assist your editing or check for errors. See here for details. If you do not wish to interact with these third parties, do not use these features.
Name Suggestion Index
The Name Suggestion Index is a feature in iD to aid users in consistently and accurately identifying the brand names of companies on the map. The NSI optionally fetches information and brand logos hosted on third party websites, including WikiData, Wikimedia Commons, and the brands’ respective Facebook and Twitter accounts. That use is governed by their respective privacy policies, including https://foundation.wikimedia.org/wiki/Privacy_policy; https://twitter.com/en/privacy; https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy. Specific information about the information and images fetched for each brand may be found at https://nsi.guide/. If you do not wish to interact with these third parties, you can deselect this feature in the User Preferences -> Privacy section.
