Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy

Your privacy is critically important to us. At Torah Live we have a few fundamental principles:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
  • We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
  • We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.
  • In our blogging products, we aim to make it as simple as possible for you to control what’s visible to the public, seen by search engines, kept private, and permanently deleted.

It is Torah Live’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Torah Live 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. Torah Live’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Torah Live’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Torah Live may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Torah Live also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blog. Torah Live only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Torah Live’s websites choose to interact with Torah Live in ways that require Torah Live to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Torah Live gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a blog to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Torah Live are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Torah Live collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Torah Live. Torah Live does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

Torah Live may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Torah Live discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that

(i) need to know that information in order to process it on Torah Live’s behalf or to provide services available at Torah Live’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others.

Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Torah Live’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Torah Live will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Torah Live discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Torah Live believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Torah Live, third parties or the public at large.

If you are a registered user of an Torah Live website and have supplied your email address, Torah Live may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Torah Live and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Torah Live takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Torah Live uses cookies to help Torah Live identify and track visitors, their usage of Torah Live website, and their website access preferences. Torah Live visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Torah Live’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of Torah Live’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Ads

Ads appearing on any of our websites may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by Torah Live and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, Torah Live may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in Torah Live’s sole discretion. Torah Live encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy.
