By using our site you are agreeing to these Terms & Conditions of Use.

Your Use of Our Site

We grant you a non-exclusive, non-transferable, limited right to access, view, use, display and print information on our site, including all the materials provided hereon, for your personal, informational, noncommercial use only. You may not copy, modify, reproduce, create derivative works from, distribute, transmit, license, or sell any content or any portion of our site without our prior express written consent.

You agree not to interrupt, or attempt to interrupt, the operation of our site in any way, or to attempt to gain unauthorized access to our network or computer systems. You may not use our site in any manner that could damage, disable, overburden, or impair our site or its hosting entity, or interfere with any other party's use and enjoyment of our site. You may not obtain or attempt to obtain any materials or information through any means not intentionally made available or provided for through our site. You agree not to use our site in any way that may impair, defame or otherwise be detrimental to us.

You agree that you will not use our site for any purpose that is unlawful or prohibited by these terms of use.

Links & Third Party Sites

We may provide links to other Web sites ("Third party Sites") as a convenience to you. We may not have reviewed all the content of these linked sites, or we may not be aware of changes that have been made to these linked sites. We are not responsible for the suitability, reliability, availability, likely results, timeliness, accuracy, completeness or privacy practices of these other sites nor do we necessarily endorse such sites. If you choose to access any of the third party sites linked to or from our site, you do so entirely at your own risk.

TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE FOR ANY LOSS OR DAMAGE OF ANY SORT INCURRED AS A RESULT OF ANY DEALINGS WITH ANY THIRD PARTY SITE OR MERCHANT OR OPERATOR OF SUCH A THIRD PARTY SITE.

Financial Transactions

As a convenience to you, our site may provide you with the ability to make donations or to pay for programs and synagogue obligations. This process is accomplished by redirecting you to a third party payment-processing site (a Third Party Site). We are not liable or responsible for the reliability, availability, likely results, timeliness, accuracy, completeness or privacy practices of this or any other third party site. If you choose to make use of this ability, you do so entirely at your own risk.

Hint: Before entering private information such as passwords or credit card details on a Third Party site, you may be able to ensure that the link is secure by the following:

  • There should be a padlock symbol in the browser window frame or address area, that appears on the page asking for your password or credit card information. Be sure that the padlock is not on the page itself, as this may indicate a fraudulent site.
  • The web address appearing in the address area should begin with "https://". The "s" stands for "secure".

The above generally indicates that the Third Party website has a digital certificate that has been issued by a trusted third party, such as VeriSign, which indicates that the information transmitted online from that website has been encrypted and protected from being intercepted and stolen by third parties. Your browser may also give you the ability to examine the certificate.

TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE FOR ANY LOSS OR DAMAGE OF ANY SORT INCURRED AS A RESULT OF ANY DEALINGS WITH ANY THIRD PARTY SITE OR MERCHANT OR OPERATOR OF SUCH A THIRD PARTY SITE.

Privacy Policy

Congregation Etz Chaim of Kew Gardens Hills ("we", "us", "our") offers this Web Site ("our site") to provide information and services to individuals for their convenience and for the benefit of the congregation. Our site may collect information from you to achieve these goals. Your privacy is important to us and we are committed to protecting it and to making you aware of our online practices regarding the privacy of your information as described in this Privacy Policy, which is incorporated by reference into our site's Terms & Conditions of Use. We reserve the right to modify this Privacy Policy at any time without notice. By using our site, you consent to this Privacy Policy.

Children

Our site is operated in compliance with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act. We do not specifically attempt to collect any personal information from children under 13. In any event, children under the age of 13 should not provide any personally identifiable information on our site without the knowledge and permission of a parent or guardian. If we discover that a child under 13 has provided us with personal information, we will remove it from our systems.

We do not post the full names of minors on the public pages of our site. If you see any breach of this policy on our site, please contact us for remediation.

Security

We use procedures we deem appropriate to ensure the security of your personal information and to protect it from unauthorized access. However, no data security measures can guarantee 100% security all of the time, and our site does not encrypt data during transmission. While we strive to protect your data from unauthorized transmission, use or disclosure, we do not warrant and cannot ensure the security of the data that you provide to us.

Information Collected

Our site does not automatically collect any individually identifiable information such as email addresses from visitors to our site. We may collect information that is not personally identifiable, such as the type of browser you are using, the type of operating system you are using and the domain name of your Internet service provider.

We collect personal information if you provide it in the course of interacting with our site. For example, you may be able to subscribe to our weekly email newsletter, sign up for some program, request recognition of a birthday or other anniversary event, or ask the Rabbi a question online. In so doing, you may be asked to provide personally identifiable information such as your name, address, email address, telephone number, birth date, children's names and ages, or other such information relevant to the action you are requesting.

If your personal information changes and you wish to update it, or if you wish to have your information removed, you may contact us and we will update or remove your personal information as requested.

Where the Information Is Stored

Personally identifiable information may be transmitted via email to a congregation official responsible for processing your request, and/or transmitted via HTTP to a third party site that is appropriately secured for such purposes, such as https://www.iContact.com. Such information is not stored on our web server, with the exception of calendar and event information, that may contain the contact information for an event.

How the Information Is Used

We may use the information you give us to provide services to you, at your request. We may use it to communicate with you through periodic messages regarding services, events, and other information and notices we believe you may find interesting or useful. We may publicize by various means any special dates or events that you have provided us for this purpose. If you do not want us to post any special dates or events for you, then please leave those fields blank. Address and phone numbers may be collected for verification purposes or for inclusion in a member directory but will not be posted publicly on our site.

Outside Parties

We do not sell, rent, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information. This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our site, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect our or others' rights, property, or safety. However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.

We may use the information that is not personally identifiable to analyze the usage, design and functioning of our site in order to make site improvements.

External Links

As a service to you, our site may contain advertisements and links to other third party websites. By clicking on an advertisement or other link, you will be redirected from our site onto third party websites. This Policy does not apply to such websites, and we are not responsible for the privacy policies of such websites. We encourage you to read the privacy statements of these linked websites as their privacy policies may differ from ours.

Data Transmission

Be advised that the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data while it is being transmitted. Any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use procedures and security features we deem appropriate to try to prevent unauthorized access.

Financial Transactions

Our site may provide you with the ability to make donations or to pay for programs and synagogue obligations. This process is accomplished by redirecting you to a third party payment processing site such as PayPal™ that specializes in providing such services using industry-standard security processes including encryption. Our site does not request, handle or store your credit card or other financial information. The processing of credit card or other payment information is subject to the third party site's terms of use and its privacy policy. We do not control third party site services or security measures and make no representations regarding such persons or entities. You are responsible for verifying the identity of any website you are redirected to for processing payments. Your web browser may provide facilities for confirming the identity of the website you are redirected to, e.g. by allowing you to view the security certificate being used by that website.
