Cookies and Usage Reports

By placing a small file known as a “cookie” on your computer (or other device), Gilgal’s and its third-party service providers’ servers passively gather information about all visitors’ use of the Site for several reasons, including, but not limited to, the following: statistics collection and analysis, Site optimization, analytics (as described below), market research, and maintenance of user login information. The information that we and our third party service providers track with cookies includes, but is not limited to, the type of browser (such as Google Chrome or Internet Explorer) and Internet-connected devices being used to access the Site, your Internet protocol (“IP”) address, your home domain or Internet service provider, your referrer URL (which is the URL for the website that you were viewing prior to visiting the Site), how you were directed to the Site, which specific pages you access on the Site, how long you view each page, the time and date you access our Site and the total number of visitors to the Site and any portions thereof.  We, and/or our third-party service providers, may use the information collected from cookies or similar files on your computer for security purposes (such as authentication), to facilitate site navigation and to personalize your experience while visiting the Site. This data helps us and our third-party service providers improve our respective product and services.

Most popular Internet browser applications will allow you to configure the browser so as not to accept cookies. However, setting your browser to reject cookies may, in certain instances, prevent you from taking full advantage of the Site (or some portion thereof) and its capabilities, or cause some features of the Site to function improperly or more slowly.


Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google, in order to better understand your use of the Site and how we can improve it.  Google Analytics collects information such as how often users visit a website, what pages you visit when you do so, and what other websites you used prior to coming to such website.  Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit a website, rather than your name or other directly identifying information.  We do not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with your personal information.  Although Google Analytics plants a persistent cookie on your web browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit a website, the cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google.  Google Analytics uses its cookie(s) and the information Google Analytics collects to track your online activities over time and across different websites when you use our Site, and other websites.  Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to the Site is governed by the Google Analytics Terms of Service and the Google Privacy Policy.  Google utilizes the data collected to track and examine the use of the Site, to prepare reports on its activities, and share them with other Google services.  To more fully understand how Google may use the data it collects on the Site, please review “How Google Uses Information From Sites or Apps That Use Our Services” (located here).


What Do We Do With Collected Information?

We use Collected Information in support of our organization’s mission. Uses include contacting you about programs and activities and requesting and facilitating donations. Gilgal and our third-party service providers collect and use the Collected Information to operate the Site, including to improve the user experience, address Site integrity or security issues, and conduct research and analysis to maintain, protect, develop, and improve the Site, and, additionally, use any information submitted by users as described below or elsewhere in this Privacy Policy or the Terms of Use. We may send you information that you request from us, and any other communication for any other legitimate and lawful purposes. Additionally, we may retain and use certain Collected Information to facilitate and otherwise address certain inquiries or requests regarding the Site, or respond to your questions or requests for information about or from Gilgal.  We may also use Collected Information as necessary to ensure compliance with any Gilgal policies and any applicable law, regulation or order.

Managing a non-profit organization also requires us to share your Collected Information with certain third parties. We may share Collected Information with third parties when (i) the person submitting the Collected Information authorizes us to share it; (ii) the third party performs a function for us directly related to the operation of the Site or our organization, such as contacting our supporters or processing payments; or (iii) we become subject to a subpoena or court order, or if we are otherwise legally required to disclose information. We may also use and disclose Collected Information to establish or exercise our legal rights, to enforce the Terms of Use, to assert and defend against legal claims, or if we believe such disclosure is necessary to investigate, prevent, or take other action regarding actual or suspected illegal or fraudulent activities or potential threats to the physical safety or well-being of any person.

When submitting information, corresponding, making requests for information, and otherwise interacting with Gilgal and its representatives through or in connection with the Site, you choose what information to supply or submit, whether you wish to receive further information, and how you may be contacted. Please take care to share only such information as is needed or that you believe is appropriate.

As Gilgal grows and develops its business, it is possible that its corporate structure or organization might change or that it might merge or otherwise combine with, or that it or portions of its business might be acquired by, another company. In any such transactions, customer information generally is, and should be expected to be, one of the transferred business assets. Also, if any bankruptcy, liquidation or reorganization proceeding is brought by or against us, your information may be considered a company asset that may be sold or transferred to third parties.


How Do We Protect Information Collected About You?

We maintain reasonable security measures to secure and protect your Collected Information from unauthorized use.  While no protections are completely secure, we strive to apply best practices to protect your Collected Information from unauthorized physical and digital access.


Links to Third Party Sites

We sometimes provide links to third party websites, such as payment providers or unaffiliated organizations, on our Site.  You understand and agree that your use of such third-party sites will be governed by the applicable privacy policies of those sites and not by this Privacy Policy. We are not responsible for the acts or omissions of third-party websites. We encourage you to seek out and read the privacy policy of each website that you visit. In addition, should you happen to initiate a transaction on a website that our Site links to, the information that you submit to complete that transaction becomes subject to the privacy practices of the operator of that linked website. You should read that website’s privacy policies to understand how personal information that is collected about you is used and protected.

Any information, communications, or material of any type or nature that you submit by e-mail, posting, messaging, uploading, downloading, or otherwise (collectively, a “Submission”) to any of our pages contained on a social media platform or website is done at your own risk and without any expectation of privacy.  We cannot control the actions of other users of a social media platform and we are therefore not responsible for any Submissions contained on a social media platform or website. By visiting any of our pages that are contained on any social media platform or website, you are representing and warranting to us that you have reviewed the applicable privacy policy and terms of use of such website or social media platform and that you will abide by all such provisions contained therein.
