  1. Hyperlinks to other sites that are not the site

 

On the site, you may find hyperlinks and/or references that link to information sources and/or other services found on the web and that are not related, either directly or indirectly, to the company and/or to the site (henceforth: “foreign sites”). Some of the foreign sites will appear under a name and/or brand name and/or logo that include the company’s logo, but are not operated and/or maintained under the company’s supervision.

 

By presenting hyperlinks on the site, the company does not express support and/or patronage either expressly and/or generally, about the content and information and/or copied services in the objectives of the hyperlinks. The company removes all responsibility in connection to any matter and/or result and/or damage that may stem from the use of the hyperlink destinations.

 

Special attention must be paid to the charter of privacy on each site to which the hyperlink leads. As said above, the company has no connection or responsibility for the conditions of use and/or charter of privacy of the hyperlink destinations. It is of utmost importance that you read and thoroughly check the charter of privacy of each one of the sites before you give personal details and/or other information on the new site that you reach. The company cannot and will not be responsible for protecting details and information that you give to these sites.

 

  1. Advertising

 

The company is not responsible in any way and/or any manner for the advertisements on the site. Advertising on the site does not indicate the company’s sponsorship and/or responsibility and/or obligation in connection with the advertiser, the product and/or the advertised service, its quality, its correctness and/or accuracy.

 

  1. Paid services

 

Some of the services in the site, such as Brit Mila Tova Shop (henceforth: “the shop”), are offered for payment. A user who purchased a product from the shop (henceforth: “the customer”) will carry out the payment through the PayPal payment service, which provides, as far as the company knows, maximum protection for the payments carried out on the internet.

 

At the same time, and in the light of the fact that this is an internet service, it is never possible to ensure complete immunity from infiltration and stealing of customer data. We therefore offer the user the option to purchase services by telephone at 09-7885379.

To remove all doubt, the company will not be responsible towards the user for any kind of damage and/or injustice, criminal and/or civil, that is caused to the user and/or another third party, both directly and indirectly, in connection with the payments that the user has made through the internet, and this is the exclusive responsibility of the user alone.

 

The products offered for sale on the site are those presented at the time that the order is carried out. The pictures of the products on the site are for illustration alone. If any picture is faulty or inaccurate, the company will bear no responsibility at all in relation to this.

 

In everything related to cancelling a transaction made between the user and the company, the directions detailed in the “directions for cancelling a transaction” which are published on the site on a separate directory will be valid.

 

Beside each product listed for sale is the price. All products whose cost is advertised on the site in New Israeli Shekels include VAT, while the prices shown in American dollars are without VAT.

 

Orders sent to foreign addresses will not include VAT, while orders sent inside Israel will include VAT.

 

The prices shown do not include shipping expenses.

 

Every person or organization is entitled to order and purchase the products on the site, subject to the following conditions:

  1. The user is an adult, is not disqualified by law, and is capable of carrying out binding actions.
  2. The user has a valid credit card.
  3. The user orders the company’s products for personal use alone (and not for commercial/wholesale use).

 

Under no circumstances will the company and/or its workers be responsible for specific, direct, indirect, accidental and or resultant damage, either single or multiple, which results from customer use of the product.

 

In any event, the company will not be responsible toward the customers according to the laws of contracts, damages or any other law beyond the amount paid by the customer for the product purchased.

 

In any event, the company will not be responsible for any demand, loss, cost, expenses and any type of responsibility whether directly or indirectly, from damage and/or injury that occurred to the person and/or the product ensuing from the use of the product that was purchased from the store.

 

Within the framework of receiving the “services for payment”, the user is required to give correct and accurate details about him/herself. Giving false personal details constitutes a felony according to the penal code of 5737 – 1977. For your information, provision of any details is performed according to your free will alone, and you have no obligation to do so. However, failure to provide details as said will not allow use of certain services on the site.

 

  1. The forum on the site

 

According to its exclusive discretion, the company will operate the site, a forum and other public areas (henceforth: “the forum”). Users are invited to send, transfer and/or to present any information, document, message and/or other materials to the forum (henceforth: “external information”).

 

In light of the fact that the company cannot supervise and/or control and/or prevent in advance publication of the “external information” on the site, the company will not bear any responsibility in connection with harmful, illegal, unauthorized and/or unsuitable messages sent by the users.

 

Note that for the external information that is uploaded by the user, the company will deliver to a relevant and licensed third party any information that will be demanded by law.

 

By sending “external information” as said, the user commits to refrain from uploading, retrieving, broadcasting, disseminating and/or advertising any information and/or any other material:

 

  1. That constitutes an infraction or concern of infraction of the laws of the State of Israel, or in any way encourages and/or solicits and/or assists in carrying out an offence and/or misdeed and/or crime.
  2. That may limit and/or prevent others from using the site.
  3. That is prohibited for advertisement and/or use, and that is within the realm of: harming the feelings of the individual and/or the public, content of a racial nature, harassment, threat, harm, insult, libel, slander, pornography and/or any other vulgar expression.
  4. That may expose the personal details of another user or anyone else.
  5. That is email and commercial messages, email and messages meant for a circulation group, chain letters, spam, mail and messages meant for many addressees who did not explicitly ask in advance to receive them (unsolicited bulk mail) and so forth.
  6. That is any type of information related to minors and identifies them, their personal details and/or their address and how to contact them.
  7. That may violate the property rights of another person, including, but not limited to: intellectual property rights, copyrights, trademarks, patents, rights for protection of privacy and/or any other right.

The company reserves the inherent right to edit, delete, remove and/or refuse to publish on the site any prohibited external information and/or that which violates the site’s conditions of use in any way, and this is the exclusive judgment of the company. Moreover, in the case of a user committing an unauthorized use, the company has the right, according to its exclusive consideration, to bar entry of the same user to the forum and/or the site, and the violating user will be prevented from making any claim against the company in this matter.

 

“The external information” that is advertised by the visitors to the site does not reflect the policy and/or opinion and/or attitude of the company, and its advertising on the site does not in any way obligate the company in responsibility of any kind.

 

The user hereby declares and agrees that any external information that is sent by him/her (except for personal details, which are regulated in the charter of privacy), may be used, copied, disseminated, publicly implemented, licensed to a third party, advertised, translated for compensation and/or not for compensation and/or for deletion by the company, and hereby relinquish any claim in connection with external information that is sent by them to the site.

The user is aware that the “external information” that is published on the site is not protected in any way, and the onus of keeping confidentiality of the “external information” transmitted by them to the site, is theirs and theirs alone.

 

The company cannot know what reactions and/or messages the user may receive from other users due to the “external information” uploaded by him/her. Therefore, the company will not bear any responsibility, in any way, for any result and/or damage that may be caused to someone who uploaded “external information” to the site.

 

The “external information” uploaded to the site by any user is the intellectual property of the user and all the statutory precepts of the law of copyrights and/or intellectual property apply. At the same time, the company reserves the right to publish parts of the user’s external information in various places on the site and outside of it as it shall see fit, with no obligation to announce its intention to do so in advance, and without compensating the owner of the external information in any way.

 

The company has no way of verifying that the information transmitted on the forum is complete and accurate. Therefore, use of the information and advice given on the forum will be the responsibility of the user alone, whether these were given by other users or by representatives of the company, and the company will not be responsible for any damage of any kind that will be caused to the surfer and/or to any other third party as a result of use of the information.

 

The users may upload to the site only “external information” that belongs to them, or “external information” whose intellectual property owners have given him explicit and written permission (henceforth: ” third party information”). A user who uploads third party information will explicitly state who the rights owners are, and the existence of permission for publication. The permission will be presented to the company immediately upon request. In case of any doubt about the existence of the permission and until its presentation to the company, the “external information” will be deleted, and the user will be able to return the “external information” to the forum after presenting the aforesaid permission. Despite all of the above, the responsibility for upholding the law is the user’s and only the user’s.

 

In addition, the company reserves the right to delete any “external information” according to its discretion, or to transfer it to an archive that is inaccessible to the users after a period of time, or when the quantity of information will obligate such an action.
