SHADONY, INC. AND YOUR PRIVACY


DRAFT May 12, 2011

At Ateret Shadony LLC we respect your right to privacy and we understand that, as a visitor to Ateret Shadony LLC, you prefer to control your own personal information and preferences. We ask you to register and to provide personal information and preferences when you purchase our products based on our Terms of Use, or subscribe to Ateret Shadony LLC’s notifications.

We will guard the personal information you share with us to ensure the content, services, and advertising that we provide on Ateret Shadony LLC are always tailored to your current, designated preferences.

When you provide Ateret Shadony LLC with your name (or alias), e-mail address, mailing address, or telephone number, and you do not 'opt out,' Ateret Shadony LLC and Ateret Shadony LLC representatives and affiliates may use the provided information to alert you to updated information, new services, and other Ateret Shadony LLC information. Beyond its representatives and affiliates, Ateret Shadony LLC does not offer or allow the selling of any user-provided information to third parties.

Ateret Shadony LLC respects the rights users give us when opting to receive e-mail communications and enforces internal policies to preserve those rights. It is our objective to retain the long-term ability to continue to communicate with our users.

If you do not want Ateret Shadony LLC or Ateret Shadony LLC representatives to contact you, you may "opt out" of this preference at any time, whether you're online or contacting Ateret Shadony LLC directly. As part of your preference flexibility, you'll always have the option to opt back in and have Ateret Shadony LLC contact you based on your previous or new preferences. For instructions, please see the section "Contact Us," below.

If a user elects to use our “Tell A Friend” application for forwarding a Ateret Shadony LLC e-mail to their friend or informing a friend about our web site, we ask them for the friend’s name and e-mail address. Ateret Shadony LLC will automatically send the friend the specified e-mail or the specified web site information. Ateret Shadony LLC will not keep nor use the friend's information to contact them in the future.

Ateret Shadony LLC Membership and the Use of Log Files (Cookies)

Ateret Shadony LLC offers free membership to all Ateret Shadony LLC visitors. In order to establish membership, visitors are requested to provide both personal information and preferences. This information is stored and protected by your user-established Username and Password.

There is an additional "Remember me" option. By selecting it, you allow Ateret Shadony LLC to store your Username and password so you can access certain areas of the web site without re-signing in. The sign-in information is stored until you explicitly sign out. It also allows you to return to any Ateret Shadony LLC web site on subsequent visits without having to re-enter your information. Ateret Shadony LLC remembers you by placing a log file (cookie) that contains only enough information to identify you upon return visits. A "cookie" is a small line of text that is stored with your web browser for record-keeping purposes and helps Ateret Shadony LLC provide better service to you. Your browser has options to accept, reject, or provide you with notice when a cookie is sent.

No information, other than that found in the Membership cookie, will be accessed by any Ateret Shadony LLC system. Access to your membership information always requires both your Username and Password.

Ateret Shadony LLC may also utilize visitor log files (cookies) and hosted tracking with our web site. Once a user enters our site, a cookie may follow them through their click stream path. Examples of information being collected by these cookies and the hosted tracking include the number of times a user came to our site(s), and the paths they took to get there. Ateret Shadony LLC uses the data collected from web site visitor cookies and hosted tracking in aggregate form only and does not collect any personally identifiable information. Use of this information helps us better understand what users are seeking and learning at our web site(s) and helps us identify potential navigation issues.

We also gauge effectiveness of our communications by inserting transparent GIF images in our HTML e-mails. These GIF files are not unique identifiers and do not gather any personally identifiable information. They simply let us know the number of e-mails that have been opened.

Fraud Protection and Compliance with Law

We may disclose any information, including personally identifiable information, we deem necessary, in our sole discretion, to comply with any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request. We may also exchange information, including personally identifiable information, with other companies and organizations for credit fraud protection and risk reduction.

Access to Your Personal Information

Ateret Shadony LLC may share your personal information with companies that perform services for us, such as fulfilling orders, delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mails, analyzing customer data, providing marketing assistance, processing credit card payments, investigating fraudulent activity, conducting customer surveys, and providing customer service. Such third parties may be provided with access to personally identifiable information needed to perform their functions, but may not use such information for any other purpose.

Some personal information is stored on servers owned by other companies. Only Ateret Shadony LLC has the right to access this information. Passwords and other sensitive information is encrypted before stored in those servers. This sensitive information is transmitted from your browser to the servers using industry-standard Secure Sockets Layer ("SSL") authentication to guarantee the confidentiality of online transactions made on our site. We use SSL authentication and encryption of the information that you send to us over the Internet to help protect your online transaction information from third party interception.

Credit Card Numbers

We do not save your credit card information on our servers. Your credit card information is sent securely from your browser to our web servers and from there to the authorization gateway. Once your session is terminated either by logging out or by closing your browser, your credit card information is deleted from the server's memory. We never display your full credit card number once it has been entered and sent successfully to the authorization gateway. We will only reveal the last four digits of your credit card for verification purposes.

Use of Aggregate Information

We may use the information you provide in aggregate (non-personally identifiable) form for internal business purposes, such as generating statistics and developing marketing plans. We may collect, store or accumulate certain non-personally identifiable information concerning your use of our site, such as information regarding which of our pages are most popular. We may share or transfer non-personally identifiable information with or to our affiliates, licensees and partners.
