1. Information we collect and how we use it

We may collect personal information in two ways when you are using our Website: (i) it is provided by you to us, or (ii) it is collected automatically.

Personal information you provide to us: You may provide personal information to us, such as your first and last name and email address if you sign up for our newsletter or other email lists. You may opt-out of these communications at any time by using the unsubscribe link at the bottom of the email or by emailing us at info@JewishEdProject.org. When you enter your contact information or send an email or other communication to The Jewish Education Project, we may retain those communications in order to process your inquiries and respond to your requests. We do not share or sell your email address or contact information with any third parties outside of the terms stated in the section of our Privacy Policy explaining "Disclosure of Information."

Personal information collected automatically: In general, The Jewish Education Project will gather some technical information automatically. This information includes your Internet Protocol ("IP") address, often associated with the portal through which you enter the Internet, like your Internet service provider ("ISP"), your company, or your university. IDEO gathers this information using Google Analytics for the purpose of monitoring Website performance and determining customer service and Website needs. Please visit Google's privacy policy to learn about their privacy practices and your opt-out choices. When you visit The Jewish Education Project, we may send one or more cookies — a small file containing a string of characters — to your computer that uniquely identifies your browser. Any use of cookies by us will be solely for the purposes of improving the quality of access to the Website by storing user preferences and tracking user trends, such as how people use the Website. Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies, but you can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. If you wish to restrict or block the cookies which are set by any website, including this Website, you should do this through each individual browser setting and on each device you use to access the Internet. You can allow cookies from specific websites by making them "trusted websites" in your Internet browser. For more information on how to do this, and how to change your browser settings, you may visit allaboutcookies.org.

Regarding Children and Minors: We do not knowingly collect personal information from users under the age of 13 ("Child" or "Children"). If The Jewish Education Project learns that a Child's personally identifiable information has been collected, we will delete the account. If parents believe that we have unintentionally collected their Child's personal information, they should contact us to request the deletion of the information at info@JewishEdProject.org.

2. Disclosure of your information

Legal Requests: The Jewish Education Project cooperates with law enforcement inquiries, as well as other third-parties to enforce laws and intellectual property rights. Therefore, in response to a verified request by law enforcement or other government officials relating to a criminal investigation or alleged illegal activity, we can (and you authorize us to) disclose your name, city, state, telephone number, and email address. Without limiting the above, in an effort to respect your privacy, we will not otherwise disclose your personal information to law enforcement or other government officials without a subpoena, court order or substantially similar legal procedure, except when we believe in good faith that the disclosure of information is necessary to prevent imminent physical harm or financial loss; or report suspected illegal activity. Due to the existing regulatory environment, we cannot ensure that all of your private communications and other personal information will never be disclosed in ways not otherwise described in this Privacy Policy. By way of example and without limiting the foregoing, we may be forced to disclose personal information to the government or third-parties under certain circumstances or third-parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications. Therefore, although we use industry standard practices to protect your privacy, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information or private communications will always remain private.

3. Storage and transfer of your information

Your information is stored on the servers of our service providers, Pantheon, FormAssembly, and Salesforce. Please note that information we collect from you may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country in which our service providers maintain facilities. We or our service providers may transfer information that we collect about you, including personal information across borders and from your country or jurisdiction to other countries or jurisdictions around the world. By using our Website you consent to the transfer of information to any other country in which our service providers maintain facilities and the use and disclosure of information about you as described in this Privacy Policy.

4. Security of your information

We use reasonable physical, procedural, technical and administrative security measures to protect your personal information against loss or theft as well as unauthorized access and disclosure to protect your privacy. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

5. Changes to this Privacy Policy

Please note that this Privacy Policy may change from time to time. We will not reduce your rights under this Privacy Policy without your explicit consent, and we expect most such changes will be minor. We will notify you of any material changes in the way we collect, use, or share your personal information by sending you an email at the last email address that you provided us, or by prominently posting notice of the changes on our Website. We will also post the new Privacy Policy to this Website, which you are advised to consult regularly for any changes. Each version of this Policy will be identified at the bottom of the page by its effective date.
