Information Dorot Collects

Dorot collects information on its users in various ways, such as, by your voluntary submissions, your participation in our Services, from third-parties, and through cookies and other tracking technology. Information that Dorot collects includes:

Personal Information

Upon your registration for our Services, Dorot may ask for your “Personal Information” such as your name, phone number, email, date of birth, gender, postal address, payment information, and possibly information relating to certain support or service issues. In most cases, we need this information to provide you with the Services that you may have requested. While it is your choice whether or not to provide certain Personal Information, the decision not to provide certain Personal Information might limit or eliminate your ability to participate in certain Services.

Submission of Reviews, Opinions, and Comments

We collect information that you voluntarily provide as part of our Services, including messages, posts, comments, responses, reviews, and opinions that you submit through the Services, (“User-Generated Content”). We may share your User-Generated Content with others. If you do not want your User-Generated Content shared with others, you should not submit it. Once you have submitted User-Generated Content, we reserve the right to publish it in any medium to others subject to the terms of this Privacy Policy.

Third-Party Information

We may supplement information you provide to us with information from other sources, such as information to validate or update your address, payment card or other demographic and lifestyle information. We use this information to help us maintain the accuracy of the information we collect, to enable us to fulfill our programs and services, to target our communications so that we can inform you of programs and services that may be of interest, and for internal business analysis or other business purposes consistent with our mission. We may also collect information about you from a third party user of our Services, for example, if a particular Service allows a third party user to refer you to our Services.

Aggregate Information

We may collect general, non-personal, statistical or demographic information about use of our Services by your and other users, such as how many users visit a specific page on our website, how long they stay on that page, and which hyperlinks they click on. This information represents a generic overview of our users, including their collective viewing habits, and allows us and other third-parties to improve our Services based on user traffic and behavior. We collect this information through the use of “cookies” and other tracking technologies discussed below.


Dorot may use “cookies” to gather information about your visits to our website and to enhance your experience. A “cookie” is a small piece of data sent from a website and stored in a user’s web browser while the user is browsing that website. Like most websites, we employ cookies in certain areas of our site to allow us to provide information to make your online experience more convenient. For example, when you return to our site after logging in, cookies provide information to our website so that the website will remember who you are on future visits, speeding up and enhancing your experience. Most browsers allow you to control cookies, including whether or not to accept them and how to remove them. You may set your browsers to notify you if you receive a cookie, or you may choose to block cookies with your browser. However, please be aware that some services and features of our website may not function or may be slower if you refuse cookies.

We may also use technology called “tracer tags” or “pixels”, “clear GIFs” or “web beacons”. This technology allows us to understand which pages you visit on our website and other ways you interact with our website, such as donations made by you to the website. We may link this information to Personal Information that we collect. Again, we use this information to help us improve and better customized our Services for you and for other users.

Note that Dorot engages third-parties to send some transactional emails, and you may need to unsubscribe from these as a separate action. You cannot, however, unsubscribe from receiving certain emails, such as account status and donation related emails.

You may delete or modify any information we have collected about you by making the appropriate on-screen selection, by sending an e-mail to, or by writing to us at Dorot Foundation, 401 Elmgrove Ave., Providence RI 02906 United States specifying the reason for your request such as “delete” or “modify.” You understand that certain Services may no longer be available to you if you choose to cancel your registration, delete your information of opt-out of the collection and use of your information.

Data Security, Integrity, and Access

The Personal Information you provide and we collect is stored within databases that we control directly or through our Administrative Service Providers. As we deem appropriate, we use security measures consistent with industry standards, such as firewalls, to protect your Personal Information. We also use industry standard encryption technology to protect credit card and password information. However, since no security system is impenetrable, we cannot guarantee the security of our databases, nor can we guarantee that information you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet.

If we are required to provide notice of unauthorized access or other invasion of certain security systems, you agree that we (or they) may do so when required (or voluntarily) by posting notice on our website or by sending notice to any email address we have for you, in our good faith discretion. You agree that notice to you will count as notice to others for whom you are acting, and agree to pass the notice on to them.


Dorot may assign you a user ID and a password as part of your participation and access to the Services. Your user ID and password may only be used by you and the members of your household. You may not share your user ID and password with anyone else, and you are solely responsible for maintaining and protecting the confidentiality of your user ID and password. You are also fully responsible for all activities that occur under your user ID and password.

Third-Party Websites and Links

The Services may contain links to other websites. Dorot has no control over, and makes no representations whatsoever, regarding such other websites or the products and services offered by or through websites accessed through links on the website, even those with which we may have an affiliation. If you decided to access third-party websites linked through our Services, you do so at your own risk and you should carefully review the privacy policy and terms of use of any such websites.

Online Policy

The Privacy Policy does not extend to anything that is inherent in the operation of the Internet, and therefore beyond Dorot’s control, and is not to be applied in any manner contrary to applicable law or governmental regulation.
