Privacy Policy

  1. Privacy Philosophy
    Hadassah believes that electronic privacy is crucial to the ongoing success of the Internet as a service, and as a commercial, and entertainment medium, and therefore uses its reasonable efforts to protect the confidentiality of your personal information. The personal information we receive from our Website is used solely for our own business purposes and as may otherwise be directed by you (e.g., to process a donation or to transmit e-mail correspondence to individuals outside Hadassah). Hadassah does not sell, trade or rent your personal information to others. Hadassah does not disclose information about your individual visits to our Website, or personal information that you provide to us, such as your name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, credit card number, etc., to any outside parties except as directed by you or when we believe, in good faith, (i) that the law requires it, (ii) that disclosure is necessary to protect the rights and property of Hadassah, our members or others, (iii) that your actions on our Website violate the Terms and Conditions stated herein, (iv) that we need to send the information to companies or individuals who work on behalf of Hadassah to provide a product or service to you or to Hadassah or (v) that it is necessary for Hadassah business purposes.

  3. Is Credit Card Information Secure?
    We care about the safety and security of your transaction. We use high grade encryption and the https security protocol to communicate with your browser software. This method is a commonly used security protocol, which makes it difficult for anyone else to intercept the credit card information you send to us. Hadassah has implemented reasonable technical and organizational measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration or disclosure. However, Hadassah cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will never be able to defeat those measures or use your personal information for improper purposes.
  4. How Do We Use "Cookies"?
    Visitors should be aware that non-personal information and data may be automatically collected by this Website through the use of "cookies". "Cookies" are small text files a website can use to recognize repeat visitors, facilitate the visitor's ongoing access to and use of the website, and allow a website to track usage behavior and compile aggregate data that will allow content improvements. Cookies are not programs designed to damage files on a user's computer. Generally, cookies work by assigning a unique number to the visitor that has no meaning outside the assigning site. If a visitor does not want information collected through the use of cookies, there is a simple procedure in most browsers that allows the visitor to deny or accept the cookie feature. Hadassah uses "cookie" technology only to obtain non-personal information from its online visitors in order to improve visitors' online experience and facilitate their visit within our Website.
