PRIVACY POLICY

WEBSITE PRIVACY POLICY EFFECTIVE DATE: February 1, 2013

1. INTRODUCTION

1.1. PURPOSE OF POLICY. The Jewish Free Loan ‘Association (“us,” “we,” or “Association”) is committed to respecting the privacy rights of its customers, visitors, and other users of the Association Website (the “Site”). We created this Website Privacy Policy (this “Policy”) to give you confidence as you visit and use the Site, and to demonstrate our commitment to fair information practices and the protection of privacy.

This Policy is only applicable to the Site, and not to any other websites that you may be able to access from the Site, each of which may have data collection and use practices and policies that differ materially from this Policy.

The Association respects your right to privacy and is committed to maintaining your confidence and trust. We do not share your personal information with other organizations for commercial or non-commercial purposes.

1.2. NOTICE CONCERNING CHILDREN

PLEASE NOTE: We are a general audience site, and do not direct any of our content specifically at children under 13 years of age. We understand and are committed to respecting the sensitive nature of children’s privacy online. If we learn or have reason to suspect that a Site user is under age 13, we will promptly delete any personal information in that user’s account.

2. INFORMATION COLLECTION PRACTICES

2.1. WHAT BASIC INFORMATION DOES THE ASSOCIATION COLLECT?

In operating the Site, the Association may include registration, online surveys, and other online forms that ask users to provide their names, e-mail addresses, and other contact information. However, except as described in this Privacy Policy, we do not collect any information from you without your knowledge and permission, and we do not ask for personal information in order to access most of our website.

2.2. WHAT ADDITIONAL INFORMATION DOES ASSOCIATION COLLECT?

(a) AUTOMATIC COLLECTION. Our servers automatically recognize visitors’ domain names and IP addresses (the number assigned to computers on the Internet). No personal information about you is revealed in this process. The Site may also gather anonymous “traffic data” that does not personally identify you, but that may be helpful for marketing purposes or for improving the services we offer.

(b) COOKIES. From time to time, we may use the standard “cookies” feature of major browser applications that allows us to store a small piece of data on your computer about your visit to our Web site. We do not set any personally identifiable information in cookies, nor do we employ any data capture mechanisms on our website other than cookies. Cookies help us learn which areas of our site are useful and which areas need improvement. You can choose whether to accept cookies by changing the settings on your browser. However, if you choose to disable this function, your experience at our Web site may be diminished and some features may not work as they were intended.

We may also use your contact information to inform you of any changes to the Site, or to send you additional information about Association.

Traffic and transaction information may also be shared with business partners and advertisers on an aggregate and anonymous basis.
