Privacy Policy

The Information We Collect and How We Use It

YIVO collects personal information from you only when it is specifically and knowingly provided by you to YIVO via your email. YIVO keeps all of the information private and will not share it with any third party, other than third parties performing work for YIVO, unless you have authorized us to or we are legally required to do so. YIVO may also release this information when we believe, in good faith, that such release is reasonably necessary to enforce or apply the provisions of our Terms and Conditions or to protect the rights, property, or safety of YIVO, our users, or others.

Our site contains links to unaffiliated sites. YIVO is not responsible for the privacy practices of the content of any of these linked sites.

If the personal information we have gathered from you changes, we will gladly correct, update, or remove any data you have previously provided to us. You may change your personal information at any time by emailing YIVO at yivoencyclopedia@yivo.cjh.org.

Security of Your Information

Our site has security measures in place intended to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. YIVO uses VeriSign SSL encryption to help ensure that all the personal information you provide is encrypted and remains private (unless sent by an unsecured means, such as email). This helps to maintain the confidentiality of your information.

We strive to protect your personal information; however, YIVO cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us.

Opting Out and Consent

From time to time, YIVO sends out periodic emails to visitors to the site. You may choose to opt out of further email contact by sending us a blank email message to YIVO at yivoencyclopedia@yivo.cjh.org. This will still allow access to the site.

By visiting the YIVO site, you consent to the terms of this Privacy Policy and to the collection and use of this information by YIVO. We will always fully disclose our privacy policies, and we will promptly post any changes to our policy on this page.

You agree that YIVO may retain and use your personal information until you inform us that you do not agree with this Privacy Policy and agree that you will not use the YIVO's web site for a reasonable period of time thereafter, in accordance with YIVO's data retention policies and/or practices. By using this site after we post any changes to this Privacy Policy, you agree to accept those changes.

If you choose to visit YIVO, your visit and any dispute over privacy is subject to this Privacy Policy and our Terms of Use.
