Afghan Jewish Heritage (“AJH”, “we”,”us” or “our”)  share your concern about the protection of your personal information online. This privacy policy ("Policy") is our policy that addresses maintaining the privacy of personal information we collect online in connection with AJH's websites, including, without limitation, the http://www.afghanim.org website and http://www.afghanjewishheritage.org website (collectively, the "Sites").

This Policy describes our privacy practices and sets out your obligations and ours with respect to your use of the Sites. By using the Sites, you agree to abide by the terms of this Policy and the terms of use (the "Terms").

We may need to change the Policy from time to time in order to address new issues and to reflect changes on the Sites or in the law. We reserve the right to revise or make any changes to the Policy, and your continual use of the Sites subsequent to any changes to this Policy will mean that you accept such changes. Therefore, please bookmark this page and review it periodically to assure familiarity with the most current version of the Policy. We will post all changes to the Policy here so that you will always know what information we gather, how we might use that information, and when and how we will disclose that information. You can tell that the Policy has been updated by checking the last revised date posted on the top of this page. If due to such changes, you decide that you want to delete any portion of your personal information from our database, please notify AJH at contact@ajh.org

BY USING THE SITES, YOU CONSENT TO OUR USING ANY INFORMATION THAT YOU PROVIDE TO US OR THAT WE COLLECT, IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE TERMS AND THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS POLICY. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THIS POLICY AND THE TERMS, PLEASE DO NOT USE THE SITES.

Information We Collect and Track. AJH collects and retains two types of information about Site visitors: (i) personal information that individual visitors provide when interacting on the Sites, or voluntarily provide on certain other occasions (such as via forms or in emails); and (ii) tracking data, which is automatically collected from every Site visitor, (collectively, "Information"). The Information that we gather may include your name, title and address (collectively, "Postal Information"), telephone number, email address, credit card number or other elements of personal information.

In addition, if you contact us, we may keep a record of your correspondence, including any Information contained therein.

You may decline to provide any personal information, but please realize that you thereby may be unable to register on AJH’s website or to participate in activities or services offered by AJH on the Sites.

The tracking data we record includes, without limitation, information regarding the number and frequency of visits to the Sites, the websites that you access before and after you visit the Sites, the Internet software used to access the Sites, and your IP address and Internet service provider.

How We Use Your Information. The Information that we collect and that you provide to us is used for our business purposes and the purpose for which you provided it, including, without limitation, to respond to your requests or correspondence. AJH may also use the Information to contact you about the Sites or to request your input regarding ways in which we might improve the Sites. We may also use your Information to inform you about AJH's activities, products, services, events and fundraising efforts in which AJH hopes you may be interested. The Information may also be analyzed so that we can provide you with useful information and can serve you in the best manner possible through enhanced features and functions on the Sites.

We will not disclose any personal information to third parties, except (i) to parties who perform a service for us, such as sending you mail or email, web hosting, credit card processing and other similar services; (ii) when we believe that such disclosure is required by law; (iii) to enforce this Policy or the Terms; (iv) to protect the rights, property, security or safety of AJH, Site users or the public; (v) to respond to an emergency; or (vi) as otherwise stated in this Policy. In addition, we may disclose Information to certain third parties if you have requested or authorized the disclosure of such Information.

Information provided to third parties is limited to the Information needed to perform their functions. We seek to limit third-party use of Information; however, we are not responsible for such third-party use of Information that is not in compliance with this Policy.

AJH may make your Postal Information available to other, pre-screened, reputable not-for-profit organizations. This information is never sold, and if you would like to opt out of having AJH share your name, title and address with other not-for-profit organizations, please either email at contact@afghanim.org with "Opt Out" in the subject line

AJH may use certain tracking data. Tracking data information may be used for a variety of purposes, including but without limitation, to compile statistical, demographic or aggregated information about visitors to the Sites generally, or for load balancing metrics and also may be used to create reports on user demographics and the traffic patterns of the Sites. The reports that are generated from tracking data are used for a variety of purposes, including, for example, to improve the Sites and our services.

Blog Postings. You should be aware that any information provided or content posted by you to the Sites may be read, collected or used by other visitors of the Sites. AJH is not responsible for the third-party use of any Information provided in such manner. By participating in the use of the blog, you consent to AJH's use or disclosure of any content that you submit.

Use of Cookies. We use cookies to enhance your experience while using the Sites. "Cookies" are small pieces of information that a website transfers to your computer's hard drive for record-keeping purposes. The use of cookies makes web surfing easier by performing certain functions such as saving your passwords and your personal preferences in connection with your use of a particular website. Many consider the use of cookies to be an industry standard. Your browser is probably set to accept cookies, but you are always free to decline our cookies if your browser permits. If you choose to have your browser refuse cookies, it is possible that some of the Services provided on the Sites will not function properly.

Transfer of Information to Third Parties Upon a Sale or Change of Control. We retain the right to transfer or assign all Information pursuant to a merger, purchase or other transaction relating to AJH or our assets if the assignee or purchaser agrees to abide by the terms of this Policy.

How Your Information Is Protected. We take reasonable precautions to protect your Information from loss, misuse or alteration. We maintain reasonable physical, electronic and procedural safeguards for your Information. You should recognize, however, that there is no such thing as "perfect security" on the Internet, and we cannot guarantee the security of your Information. In addition, because Internet communication is unsecure, it is also possible that the information you supply to us or your access of any information via the Sites will be intercepted during transmission. We are not liable for any breach of our systems or interception of our transmission, and we hereby fully disclaim, to the fullest extent provided under law, any liability associated with any claim relating to a breach of security, data or information.

Other Communications. From time to time, we may email users of the Sites information regarding important developments affecting AJH. We may also email users on occasion regarding the Sites. Such emails may be sent to users of the Sites even if they have not requested to receive any communication from us.

Referrals. If a user elects to use our referral service to inform a friend about the Sites, we request the name and email address of the friend. AJH will automatically send the friend a one-time email inviting him or her to visit the Sites. AJH stores this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email.

Links to Third-Party Sites. The Sites may contain links to websites owned and operated by other parties. We are not responsible for and have no control over the privacy policies of those sites. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of those sites prior to providing them with any information.

Children Under the Age of 13. Because AJH is concerned about the privacy protection of children who access the Internet, we comply with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). Accordingly, the Sites are not intended for use by anyone under the age of 13, and we do not knowingly collect Information from anyone under 13 years of age without the consent of a parent or guardian.

AJH is committed to the highest standards of ethical conduct. Given AJH’s mission and responsibilities, which literally span the globe, all employees, Board members and lay leaders have an obligation to preserve the organization’s reputation and standing, in our community and beyond, to uphold the public trust, and to act in an ethical and lawful manner. AJH requires its employees, Board members and lay leaders (“AJH personnel”) to observe high standards of business and personal ethics, and to comply with all applicable laws and regulations, in the conduct of their duties and responsibilities for the organization. Accordingly, AJH has established a Standards and Conflicts Committee, so that potential ethical issues can receive the attention they deserve. AJH’s reputation for acting in accordance with the highest standards of ethical conduct is one of its most valuable assets. The assistance of all employees, Board members and lay leaders in preserving this asset is both expected and sincerely appreciated.

 

The Whistleblower Policy

 

As part of its overall commitment to the highest standards of ethical conduct, AJH has established a Whistleblower Policy (the “Policy”). This Policy has been developed and implemented to encourage employees and volunteers to make good faith reports of possible violations of law or infractions of rules or organizational policies by any AJH personnel, and to raise any concerns they may have about such matters, confidentially and without fear of retaliation, within AJH prior to seeking a resolution outside the organization. Reports also may be made through this process regarding inappropriate acts or possible breaches of law or established policy by entities with whom AJH does business, such as vendors or service providers, including investment managers or consultants. Types of matters that should be reported under the Whistleblower Policy include suspected fraud, theft, embezzlement, accounting or auditing irregularities, bribery, kickbacks, abuse or misuse of AJH’s resources or assets, conflicts of interest, suspected compliance or ethics-related issues, concerns or violations, or suspected wrongdoing.
