• To follow up the way in which you use our Websites during any given visit, to remember the data that you provide and the choices that you make, during your progression from one page to the next (“session cookies”).

• If you limit the use that we may make of persistent cookies, you will still be able to enjoy full operation of our Websites and email messages but you will be required to enter certain data each time, anew, at the start of every new visit to our Website. Despite the fact that persistent cookies are not automatically deleted and the availability of them is not harmed when the browser is closed, they will typically “expire” after several years.

1.9.2. Pixel Tags
In addition, we are entitled to use “pixel tags” or similar technologies that enable us to follow up your activities when you use our Websites, or when you receive our email messages. Pixel tags are used for the collection of anonymous information in order to assist us in determining popular orders, clicks and other information for the purpose of improving our Service. We use them in order to identify what online advertisements or email led you to our Website.
1.9.3. Websites of Other Companies
1.10. Use of Information and Transfer of Information to Other Parties
1.10.1. We work with various companies in order to provide you with the service that you request. These companies are independent companies which are not owned or controlled by us and therefore, this Policy does not apply to them. However, in order for you to receive optimal service, we need to transfer your Personal Information to these parties, including the transfer of information overseas where necessary. Therefore, for the purpose of provision of the Services, Personal Information concerning you will be collected and transferred to other parties so long as such is necessary for the purpose of the Service that you have requested, and in light of the goals that are set out in this document.
1.10.3. The details that you provide when you contract with us, and any other time you contact us, shall be kept in a computerized database that is owned by the Company. You are under no legal obligation to provide details of yourself, but if you do not provide us with certain details, we will be unable to provide you with particular services under this Agreement. If you are not interested in providing the information, we will ask that you do not make use of the Website.
We act to protect the Personal Information concerning you in a secured manner in such a way which will keep it accurate, up-to-date and complete, to the extent that is necessary for the purposes for which we are making use of it.
We will usually store Personal Information about our customers so long as we believe that such is necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or so long as such is necessary, in accordance with the applicable law.
Our central databases for storing the Personal Information that we collect are located on the Company’s servers in Israel. However, we shall transfer information to our business partners overseas and to various service providers in destination countries and in other countries in which our suppliers process the information concerning you in order to provide you with the Service. The transfer of such information will be effected in accordance with the provisions of the law.
We take appropriate information security measures, including adequate physical, procedural and electronic security measures for the purpose of protecting your Personal Information, including:
• Restricting access to Personal Information by our employees;
• Enforcement of this Policy and processes with our employees during the course of their work with Personal Information;
• Use of technology that is designed for the protection of information during its transmission, including SSL1 encryption for information that you provide on our Websites.
The Company uses systems and procedures for information security on its Website. Whilst these systems and procedures narrow down the risks of unauthorized access, they are not absolutely secure. Therefore, the Company does not undertake that the services on its Websites will be completely immune to unauthorized access to the information stored on them.
Therefore, it is your responsibility as well to take appropriate security measures (such as against viruses, computer penetration, loss of data, disclosure of secrets, etc.).
If you have an account with us and you are concerned that it might not be secured anymore, you must contact us immediately in accordance with the instructions that are set out at the end of this Policy.
1.14. Communications Security
We make endeavors to balance the securing of your information and your convenience. As a result of that, we might sometimes use a less secure method of communication than less convenient alternatives. For instance, we might send you an unencrypted (i.e., immediately readable) email since many of our customers are unable to access encrypted (i.e., encoded) emails. This means that our email if incorrectly directed or diverted, might be more easily read than encrypted email. Because of that, please refrain from including confidential information such as your credit card number in emails that you send to us.
In order to use a more secure method for communicating with us via the internet, please contact us via one of the contact methods that are set out below.
1.15. More on SSL Encryption
SSL stands for “Secure Socket Layer” encryption. We use this protection for the information that you provide to us on our Websites. SSL encryption is designed to ensure that you are indeed the person who sent the information to the Company and that no one else can read or distort it during the course of its transmission. When you are asked to provide us with your Personal Information on our Websites, you will see that the “HTTP” address of our Website changes to “HTTPS”. The addition of the “s” means that the Website is secured for the purpose of data transfer. You will also see a closed lock symbol on the screen, which also means that the Website is secured.
You may access and peruse your Personal Information at no cost, and you may correct any factual errors by sending an email to the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org
In order to protect your details, we may request that you provide us with information that will enable us to identify you, such as your identity card number, and information relating to the means of payment that you may provide to us.
