1.1. Information Provided by You
1.1.1. Birthright Israel Website Use, Registration, and Applications – When completing forms on a Site in order to contact us or to subscribe to our communications, when registering a profile or account on a Site, when using a Site to complete an application to participate in a Birthright Israel trip or in another program administered by us, or in a variety of other circumstances (including communications with us via online forms, email, phone, or mail), you may be asked to provide personally identifiable information, such as, but not limited to, your full name, date of birth, passport number and other passport data, email address, telephone number, address, the names and contact information for third parties (such as a parent/guardian), other information related to your background and religious affiliation, and you may also be asked to provide health information as needed in consideration of the activities taking place on your trip or in connection with the program you have applied for (collectively, the “Personal Information”). By providing any such Personal Information, you consent to our collection, transfer, processing, storage, disclosure, and general use of such Personal Information in accordance with this Policy.
220.127.116.11. Registration Through Social Sites – Rather than entering certain Personal Information directly on the Sites in order to register, we may provide the option to register by utilizing your credentials on a social media website such as Facebook (a “Social Site”). When you provide credentials for a Social Site via our Sites, we may use those credentials to obtain Personal Information about you from that Social Site and the Social Site may automatically track your activities within our Sites. You may still be asked to provide additional Personal Information to the extent the Social Site does not have all of the Personal Information we require. By registering your credentials through a Social Site in the manners noted, you consent to the transfer of your associated Personal Information to us and our collection, transfer, processing, storage, disclosure, and general use of such Personal Information in accordance with this Policy.
1.1.2. Deposit/Payment Processing – At the end of the application process for the Birthright Israel trip or another program administered by us, you may be asked to pay a deposit or, for certain trips or programs, to make a payment (collectively, the “Deposit”), and will be redirected to a third-party payment site in order to do so (the “Payment Processor”). Birthright Israel does not collect information in connection with your payment of a Deposit; rather all such information is collected directly by the Payment Processor. Therefore, once you are redirected to the Payment Processor’s website, in addition to providing Personal Information, you will also need to provide the Payment Processor with information related to your credit card, including but not limited to the name appearing on the credit card, the credit card billing address, the credit card shipping address, the credit card number, the credit card expiration date, the credit card security code, and related information (the “Credit Card Information”). By providing any such Credit Card Information during the application process or at any other time, you consent to our collection, transfer, processing, storage, disclosure, and general use of such Credit Card Information in accordance with this Policy.
1.1.3. Information You Provide to Trip Organizers – To the extent you have applied to participate in a Birthright Israel trip – or another program administered by us – you may, at various times, be asked to provide information to a Birthright Israel Trip Organizer who is responsible for running the Birthright Israel trip or program you have selected (the “Trip Organizer”). Please remember that any information you provide to a Trip Organizer will be governed by that Trip Organizer’s privacy policies and storage and processing of such information is the sole responsibility of the Trip Organizer.
1.2. Automatically Collected Information – We will automatically collect some additional personally identifiable information about you when you use the Sites (the “Automatically Collected Personal Information”) and we incorporate tools into our Sites that allow such Automatically Collected Personal Information to simultaneously be collected and used by our “Ad Serving Providers” and by our “Analytics Providers,” as further defined herein. Automatically Collected Personal Information may include, but will not be limited to, your diagnostic log information, log-in location, IP address, operating system and language, referring/exit pages and URLs, browsing history, number of clicks, landing pages, cookie information, the pages you requested and viewed, the amount of time spent on particular pages, what questions you have answered in a Birthright Israel trip or other program application, and the date and time. This information is collected for the purposes described in this Policy, including to better understand our constituent base and to improve the quality of the Sites. By using the Sites, you consent to our collection, transfer, processing, storage, disclosure, and general use of the Automatically Collected Personal Information in accordance with this Policy.
1.2.4. Pixels – Pixels are tiny graphics with unique identifiers that are used to track the online movements of web users. Unlike cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, pixels are small graphics that are about the size of the period at the end of the sentence that are embedded invisibly on Sites pages. Our Ad Serving Providers and Analytics Providers may place pixels on pages of our Sites that track what other websites you visit (both before and after visiting the Sites). Our Ad Serving Providers and Analytics Providers use information obtained from pixels to help us improve our business and the Sites. We do not control the use of pixels by our Ad Serving Providers, our Analytics Providers, or by other third parties.
2.1. In General – In general, we may use any Personal Information, Credit Card Information, or Automatically Collected Personal Information, for the following reasons:
2.1.1. Enabling you to participate on a Birthright Israel trip or other program administered by us;
2.1.2. Operating, maintaining, and improving the Sites (including providing you a more personal experience);
2.1.4. Conducting research;
2.1.5. Resolving disputes;
2.1.6. Collecting fees owed;
2.1.7. Detecting and protecting against errors, fraud, and criminal activity;

You may not opt-out of receiving service-related messages that are not promotional in nature. We may also send you marketing emails, surveys, or newsletters, including via mail, to notify you about products or services that may be of interest to you. If you would like to stop receiving marketing emails from us, please click on the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any marketing email you receive or please contact us via phone or mail.

2.2.1. Providing Customer Support with Regard to Deposits – As noted, Birthright Israel does not collect Credit Card Information.

Birthright Israel stores such Transaction Information and associates it with your Personal Information and Automatically Collected Personal Information in order to provide you with limited customer support in connection with any Deposit-related inquiries and in order to confirm whether a Deposit was paid in connection with any application you have submitted. All other Credit Card Information, to the extent collected, is only used by the Payment Processor for purposes of payment processing or as may be required by law, as further described herein. Such information is processed and retained in accordance with the Israeli law requirements.
