COMMITMENT TO YOUR PRIVACY
This site is owned and operated by Lavi Industries. Your privacy on the Internet is of the utmost importance to us. At Lavi Industries, we want to make your experience online satisfying and safe.
Because we gather certain types of information about our users, we feel you should fully understand the terms and conditions surrounding the use of that information. This privacy statement discloses what information we gather and how we use it.
INFORMATION LAVI INDUSTRIES GATHERS AND TRACKS
Lavi Industries gathers two types of information about users:
||Information that users provide through optional, voluntary submissions. |
These are voluntary submissions to receive our electronic newsletters, to participate in our message boards or forums, to email a friend, and from participation in polls and surveys.
||Information Lavi Industries gathers mainly by tallying page views throughout our sites. |
This information allows us to better tailor our content to readers' needs and to help our advertisers and sponsors better understand the demographics of our audience. Under no circumstances does Lavi Industries divulge any information about an individual user to a third party.
Lavi Industries Gathers User Information Utilizing The Following Processes:
Optional Voluntary Information
We offer the following free services which require some type of voluntary submission of personal information by users:
1. Electronic Newsletters
We will offer a free electronic newsletter to users. Lavi Industries gathers the email addresses of users who voluntarily subscribe. Users may remove themselves from this mailing list by following the link provided in every newsletter that points users to the Subscription Management page. Users can also subscribe to the newsletters at the time of registration.
2. Message Boards and Forums
Users of the site's Message Boards and Forums must register separately for these services in order to post messages. (Both are free of charge) However, registration is not required to visit the site. During registration the user is required to supply a username, password, and email address.
3. "E-mail This to a Friend" Service
Our site users can choose to electronically forward a link, page, or documents to someone else by clicking "e-mail this to a friend". The user must provide their email address, as well as that of the recipient. This information is used only in the case of transmission errors and, of course, to let the recipient know who sent the email. The information is not used for any other purpose.
We may offer interactive polls to users so they can easily share their opinions with other users and see what our audience thinks about important issues. Opinions or other responses to polls are aggregated and are not identifiable to any particular user. Lavi Industries may use a system to "tag" users after they have voted, so they can vote only once on a particular question. This tag is not correlated with information about individual users.
Lavi Industries may occasionally conduct user surveys to better target our content to our audience. We sometimes share the aggregated demographic information in these surveys with our sponsors, advertisers and partners. We never share any of this information about specific individuals with any third party.
Consistent with the Federal Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA), we will never knowingly request personal identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13 without requesting parental consent.
Lavi Industries tracks user traffic patterns throughout all of our sites. However, we do not correlate this information with data about individual users.
We sometimes track and catalog the search terms users enter in our Search function, but this tracking is never associated with individual users. We use tracking information to determine which areas of our sites users like and don't like based on traffic to those areas. We do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better service for you.
USE OF INFORMATION
Lavi Industries uses only information voluntarily given by our users to enhance their experience in our network of sites.
We utilize this information to send out newsletters on a regular schedule (depending on the newsletter), and occasionally send out special editions when we think subscribers might be particularly interested in something we are doing. Lavi Industries never shares newsletter mailing lists with any third parties, including advertisers, sponsors or partners.
REMARKETING WITH GOOGLE ANALYTICS
- Lavi.com uses Remarketing with Google Analytics to advertise online.
- Third-party vendors, including Google, may show Lavi Industries ads on sites across the Internet.
- Lavi Industries and third-party vendors, including Google, use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookie) and third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) together to inform, optimize, and serve ads based on someone's past visits to Lavi.com website.
SHARING OF THE INFORMATION
Lavi Industries uses the above-described information to tailor our content to suit your needs and help our advertisers, sponsors and partners better understand our audience's demographics. By allowing our advertisers to advertise more effectively, users receive advertisements that are pertinent to their needs. This is also essential to keeping our service free.
Because we don't track the usage patterns of individual users, an advertiser or sponsor will never know that a specific user clicked their ad. We will not disclose any information about any individual user except to comply with applicable law or valid legal process or to protect the personal safety of our users or the public.
Lavi Industries operates secure data networks protected by industry standard firewall and password protection systems. Our security and privacy policies are periodically reviewed and enhanced as necessary and only authorized individuals have access to the information provided by our customers.
We give users options wherever necessary and practical.
Such choices include:
||Opting not to register to receive our electronic newsletters.|
||Opting not to participate in certain interactive areas, which completely alleviates the need to gather any personally identifiable information from our users|
