Third Party Websites
This Website may contain links to and advertisements for websites operated by third parties whose privacy practices may differ from those of Temple Sholom. While we endeavor to associate only with reputable entities, Temple Sholom cannot be responsible for the privacy practices of third party websites. We encourage you to check the privacy policies of all websites that you visit.
This Website is not intended for visitors who are under eighteen (18) years of age. Temple Sholom does not knowingly solicit or collect information from individuals under the age of eighteen (18). If we determine that we have inadvertently collected PII from someone under eighteen (18), we will take reasonable steps to purge this information from our database. We encourage parents and guardians to spend time online with their children and to participate and monitor the Internet activities of their children.
All collected information is stored in a technically and physically secure environment. While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect PII (including Sensitive Information) off-line. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect our end users' PII, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information that you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.
Once we receive the transmission of your PII, we make reasonable efforts to ensure its security on our systems. Access to this information is strictly limited and not accessible to the public. All our end users' PII is restricted in our offices. Only personnel who need the information to perform a specific job (for example a customer service representative) are granted access to PII. Personnel not adhering to our policies are subject to disciplinary action. In compliance with applicable federal and state law, we shall notify you and any applicable regulatory agencies in the event that we learn of an information security breach with respect to your PII. You will be notified via e-mail in the event of such a breach. Please be advised that notice may be delayed in order to address the needs of law enforcement, determine the scope of network damage, and engage in remedial measures.
