The information you allow us to access varies by Social Network, and it is affected by the privacy settings you and those that you are connected with establish while using such Social Networks. Social Networks are operated, controlled, and maintained by third parties that are not operated, controlled, or maintained by us.

How we handle children’s Information

We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 16 without consent from their parent or guardian, and we will delete such information if we become aware that it has been submitted through the Website. If you are a parent or guardian and are concerned about our collection of your child’s personal information, please contact us.

Your Rights

You may ask us for the following: (i) a copy of your information, (ii) to correct your information, (iii) erase or restrict its processing, and (iv) transfer some of your personal information to other organizations. You may also object our processing of your personal information.

Please note as follows:

  • We should be able to determine your identity in order to be able to respond to your request.
  • We may not accommodate a request to change information if we believe the change would violate any law or legal requirement or cause the information to be incorrect. 
  • We are not obliged to delete personal information if we can show that the processing is required under applicable law or regulation, or necessary for a legitimate interest, for example, for the establishment, exercise, or defense of a legal claim.
  • If you provide us with your email address, you will always have the opportunity to opt out of receiving email newsletters and promotions through the unsubscribe link in the email communications. We may send you other types of transactional and relationship e-mail communications, such as service announcements, administrative notices, and surveys, without offering you the opportunity to opt out of receiving them. 
  • Changing information in your account, or otherwise opting out of receipt of promotional email communications will only affect future activities or communications from us. If we have already provided your information to a third party before you changed your preferences or updated your information, you may have to change your preferences directly with that third party.
  • If you do not allow us to collect, or ask us to delete or to stop processing, any of your personal information, we may not be able to provide you with certain features and/or services, and some of the Website’s features and some of our services may not work appropriately or adjusted to your interests and preferences.

If you would like to exercise any of your rights, you may contact us. 

If you are unhappy with our processing of your personal information or of an alleged infringement of the General Data Protection Regulation, if and to the extent applicable to you, or other applicable data privacy laws, you may lodge a complaint with a competent supervisory authority.

Transferring your information internationally

We may store and/or process your personal information in countries outside of your own, including in the United States and in Israel. We rely on the European Commission’s recognition that some non-European Economic Area (EEA) countries have an adequate level of data protection. In countries, other than EEA countries, which may provide different data protection rules, we rely on appropriate contractual clauses.

Links to other websites

The Website may contain links to sites operated by third parties whose policies regarding the handling of information may differ from ours. These websites and platforms have separate and independent privacy or data policies, privacy statements, notices and terms of use, which we recommend you read carefully.

Data Security and Integrity

Afimilk is concerned about the security of your data. We have implemented technical and organizational security measures that are designed to help protect your information from unauthorized access, disclosure, use and modification. From time to time, we review our security procedures to consider appropriate new technologies and methods. 

Please be aware, though, that despite our efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. We cannot ensure, and do not warrant or guarantee, that the information you transmit to us will remain secure, nor do we guarantee that this information will not be accessed, disclosed, altered, destroyed or used in an unauthorized manner. 

If we learn of a security breach, we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. We may also post a notice on the Website or our services if a security breach occurs. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive a notice of a security breach in writing.
