Terms of Use & Privacy Policy

 

User Agreement

Last Amended: May, 2013

Welcome to the AVI CHAI Website (“AVI CHAI Website”), which is jointly operated by The AVI CHAI Foundation and AVI CHAI Israel (“we” or “us”). Please read this agreement (“User Agreement”) carefully, because by visiting or using the AVI CHAI website, you agree to be legally bound by and comply with its terms. If you do not agree to comply with this User Agreement, you are not authorized to use the AVI CHAI Website.

We may revise this User Agreement from time to time. If you continue to use the website after we post the change, this means you have agreed to the new terms.

Privacy Policy
We do not collect personally identifiable information from visitors to the AVI CHAI Website.  We do collect anonymous information about visitors in two ways: through our server log files and through the use of “cookies.”  Our server automatically logs certain anonymous information, such as the type of browser the visitor is using (e.g., Firefox, Google Chrome, or Internet Explorer), and each visitor’s Internet Protocol address, which is a number assigned to each user by an Internet service provider. The cookies, which are small text files that are placed on the hard drive of the visitor’s computer to track that visitor’s movement, collect each visitor’s navigation and choice of Web pages. Most Internet browsers will let you disable cookies, if you prefer.

We use this anonymous information to improve the services on the AVI CHAI Website. We may share anonymous information in the aggregate with third parties who assist us in operating and improving the AVI CHAI Website. We do not use the anonymous information to gain further information regarding AVI CHAI visitors.

If you email us, we will receive any personally identifiable information you include in that email, such as your email address, and any information in your message. We will use this information to respond to your request, and we may store your name and email address so we can send you information about AVI CHAI’s activities.

Please note that any personally identifiable information you send us may be stored in the United States, and, by emailing us, you consent to such storage.

If you do not wish us to keep your name and email address or to send you such information, or if you want to revise any personal information you’ve sent us, or if you have any questions about us or our treatment of your information, please contact us via email at info@avichaina.org.

As the AVI CHAI Website continues to evolve, we may revise this Privacy Policy to reflect new functions that may involve the collection of personal information. We will post any changes to this Web page, so be sure to check it from time to time, because when you continue to use the AVI CHAI Website after we post a change, this means you agree to the new terms.

WE ARE NOT LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL, PUNITIVE, OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES (INCLUDING LOST REVENUES OR PROFITS, LOSS OF BUSINESS, OR LOSS OF DATA) ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE AVI CHAI WEBSITE (OR YOUR USE THEREOF) OR THIS USER AGREEMENT, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER SUCH LIABILITY IS BASED IN TORT, CONTRACT OR OTHERWISE. Some states do not allow the limitation for these kinds of damages, so these limitations or exclusions may not apply to you.

Indemnification
You agree to indemnify and defend us and our directors, officers, employees, and agents (“Indemnified Parties”) against all liabilities, losses, damages, and costs (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) that the Indemnified Parties may incur based on claims arising out of your use of the AVI CHAI Website or violation of this User Agreement.  The Indemnified Parties reserve the right, at their expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter for which the Indemnified Parties are entitled to indemnification.  You agree to provide the Indemnified Parties with whatever cooperation they reasonably request.

Termination
We reserve the right to terminate the AVI CHAI website or this User Agreement at any time without notice, for any reason, including, in the case of the User Agreement, for your violation of any of these provisions. The Limitation of Liability, Indemnification, and General Sections of this User Agreement shall survive such termination.

General
This User Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between us regarding your use of the AVI CHAI Website and supersedes any prior agreements between us regarding the same subject matter, whether oral or written.  This User Agreement will be governed by the laws of the State of New York applicable to contracts made and performed there without regard to its conflicts of law principles.  If any provision of this User Agreement is deemed unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision will be deemed severed and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions (unless doing so would deprive either party of a material benefit of this User Agreement). You may not assign this User Agreement, and any attempt to do so will be null and void.
