Privacy Policy and Legal Notice

Gesher recognizes the importance of privacy to visitors of our website.

Like all other web servers, the server automatically creates log files for everyone who visits our site. These access logs allow us to make our site more useful to our visitors. The access logs do NOT record visitors' name, address, phone number, credit card numbers, or any other personally-identifying information. They do contain information such as:

  • The Internet Protocol Address (IP Address) of the machine which accessed our website
  • The date of the visit
  • The time of the visit
  • The path taken through our website
  • The browser being used
  • A list of files downloaded or viewed
  • Any errors encountered

Use of Information
Gesher uses such non-identifying aggregate information to analyze how visitors use our site so we can improve our design and your experience. We share this information with third parties in aggregate form only as appropriate. For example, we may tell a third party that a certain number of users accessed a particular part of our website. However, we will not disclose any information that could be used to identify those users.

The use of personally-identifying information is limited to the following: responding to user e-mails; editorial purposes such as contacting users for an online survey; sending communications to users who have opted to receive such communications; and other purposes specified at the time the information is gathered.

Gesher may disclose personal information if required to do so by law or if it believes that such action is necessary to (a) comply with the law or with legal process, (b) protect against misuse or unauthorized use of the website, or (c) protect the personal safety or property of Gesher website users, the public or Gesher and its employees.

Gesher has in place what we believe to be appropriate physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.

Corrections to Personal Data; Opting Out
Please contact us to (a) correct or update any personal information in the Gesher database that might be erroneous, (b) opt-out of future communications from Gesher, or (c) request Gesher to make reasonable efforts to remove your personal information from the Gesher online databases. The user understands that it may be impossible to delete personal information entirely because of backups and records of deletions.
