Our No-Spam Policy:
The Yiddish Book Center regularly sends email to our members and subscribers. We do not share email addresses with any other individual or organization. The only emails you will receive from us will be about Yiddish Book Center programs and related activities. You can unsubscribe at any time by editing your user profile, clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of an email, or contacting us at email@example.com.
What Information We Collect and How We Use That Information:
The Yiddish Book Center uses the information you provide so that we can better meet your needs, fulfill your online order, facilitate customer service, and inform you of the Center’s activities. The Yiddish Book Center does not collect personal information about individuals, such as names and mailing or email addresses, unless the individual knowingly provides it. Our registration and donation forms request that users give us contact information that may include name, email address, format preference (HTML vs. Text), address, interests, and similar information. We do not collect or store sensitive information from our visitors, such as credit card or social security numbers, except as required to complete customer transactions. We do not share email addresses with any other organizations or individuals.
In some instances, we may share postal mailing lists with like-minded organizations. This is done only through authorized direct mail services and is arranged by agreement on a per-use basis. If you would prefer that we not share your information with any other organizations, simply contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Details regarding members’ giving history are never disclosed outside of the organization, except occasional listings of names and commemorations that are intended for donor recognition. If you would prefer not to be included in such public listings, please let us know when you make your contribution, or notify us at email@example.com that you would like your gift(s) to remain anonymous.
Internet Protocol Address:
We collect an IP address from all visitors to our site. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. We use IP addresses to help diagnose problems with our server, administer our site, analyze trends, track users' movement, gather broad demographic information for aggregate use in order to improve the site, and deliver customized, personalized content. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
Use of "Cookies":
All information provided to the Yiddish Book Center is transmitted using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption. SSL is a proven coding system that lets your browser automatically encrypt, or scramble, data before you send it to us. We also protect account information by placing it on a secure portion of our site that is only accessible by certain qualified employees of the Yiddish Book Center. Unfortunately, however, no data transmission over the Internet is 100 percent secure. While we strive to protect your information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of such information.
When you make a donation, purchase items in our store, or purchase tickets to an event, the Yiddish Book Center will ask you to provide identifying information necessary to process and service your donation or purchase online, which may include your name, address, email address, billing and shipping addresses, and credit card number. While we retain the contact information for membership and customer service purposes, we do not store your credit card information electronically. Any written submissions of credit card information are stored in a secure location and then destroyed in accordance with Massachusetts state laws regarding personal-information protection. In the case of online transactions, all credit card data is fully encrypted and is not even visible to the Yiddish Book Center or its staff members.
If a user elects to use our referral service for informing a friend about our site, we ask them for the friend's name and email address. The Yiddish Book Center will automatically send the friend a one-time email inviting them to visit the site. The Yiddish Book Center stores this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email.
Our site contains links to other websites. Please note that when you click on one of these links, you are entering another website for which the Yiddish Book Center has no responsibility. We encourage you to read the privacy statements on all such sites, as their policies may be different than ours.
