Privacy Policy

It is the policy of the Jewish Writers’ Initiative (hereinafter, “us,” “we,” or “the Initiative”), to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating the website. This Privacy Policy applies to jwinitiative.com and all pages and content hosted therein (collectively referred to herein as “jwinitiative.com,” the “Site,” or the “Website”).

We respect your privacy and are committed to protecting personally identifiable information that is collected through the Website. We have adopted this Privacy Policy (the “Privacy Policy”) to explain what information may be collected on the Website, how we use this information, and under what circumstances we may disclose the information to third parties. This Privacy Policy applies only to information we collect through the Website and does not apply to the collection of information from other sources.

This Privacy Policy sets forth the general rules and policies governing your use of the Website. Depending on your activities when visiting the Website, you may be required to agree to additional terms and conditions.

 

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, the Initiative collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. The Initiative’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how visitors use its website. From time to time, the Initiative may internally release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate.

The Initiative also collects potentially personally-identifying information such as Internet Protocol (IP) addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.

Gathering Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to the Website choose to interact with the Initiative in ways that require us to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that the Initiative gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors filling out a contact form to provide a first name, last name, email address, and phone number, in addition to the message sent to the Initiative.

 

Security

The security of your Personal Information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

 

Links to External Sites

The Website may contain links to external sites that are not operated by the Initiative. If you click on a third party link, you will be directed to that third party’s site. We strongly advise you to review each third-party site’s Privacy Policy and any terms and conditions thereof, as applicable.

We have no control over, and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies, or practices of any third party sites, products, or services.

 

Aggregated Statistics

The Initiative may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its website. The Initiative may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, the Initiative does not disclose your personally-identifying information.

 

Cookies

To enrich and perfect your online experience, the Website uses “cookies,” similar technologies, and services provided by others to display personalized content and appropriate advertising and to and store your preferences on your device(s).

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s device, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. The Website uses cookies to help the Initiative identify and track visitors, along with their usage of the Website and their website access preferences. Website visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their devices should, prior to using the Website, set their browsers to refuse cookies, bearing in mind that certain of the Website’s features may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

By continuing to navigate the Website without changing your cookie settings, you hereby acknowledge and agree to the Website’s, and the Initiative’s, use of cookies.

 

Privacy Policy Changes

The Initiative may change this Privacy Policy from time to time, and in the Initiative’s sole discretion. We encourage visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to this Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this Site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
