Is Credit Card Information Secure?
We care about the safety and security of your transaction. We and our hosting service providers use high grade encryption 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, The Hadassah Entities cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will never be able to defeat those measures or use your personal information for improper purposes.

Use of IP Address and Computer Information
Among other things, we use your computer's IP (Internet Protocol) address to:
- Help diagnose problems with our server
- Administer our Website
Your IP address is used to help identify you and your time spent at our Website, and to gather broad demographic information. This allows us to see which parts of our Website users are visiting. We do not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable. This means, for instance, that a user's session will be tracked, but the user will remain anonymous.
Our website automatically records website usage information that we analyze statistically to track operational problems, to prevent fraud and to improve the effectiveness, security and integrity of the site. We do not use this information to track or record information about individuals. We will disclose this information to third parties only in aggregate form or as may be required by law. For each page that you visit, we collect and store the following technical information in what is called a web server log file:
- Date and time of access
- URL address of the Hadassah webpage visited
- Internet domain and IP address from which our website was accessed
- Type of browser and operating system used to access our site (if provided by the browser)

- Completion or success status of the request for a web page or other on-line item

The Hadassah Entities may collect and aggregate data about your usage of the Website, and Hadassah shall be the sole owner of such information.
This website will not respond to Web browser “do not track” signals. If you would like additional information about online tracking and various opt-out mechanisms, please see http://donottrack.us/
