Privacy Policy

Commitment To Your Privacy

This site is owned and operated by the American Jewish Committee. Your privacy on the internet is of the utmost importance to us. At the American Jewish Committee, we want to make your experience online satisfying and safe.

Because we gather certain types of information abut users, we feel you should fully understand the terms and conditions surrounding the capture and use of that information. This privacy statement discloses what information we gather and how we use it.

Types of Information Collected

When you register on the American Jewish Committee Web site, we ask you to create a user name and password. We collect personal data through a registration process for our membership, website, newsletter, and when you buy products and services on our site.

We collect your First Name, Last Name, Company, Address, City, State, Zip Code, Country, Phone, Fax, and Email Address. This information is collected to allow us to better tailor our content to readers’ needs so you can receive and have a more personalized experience.

If you purchase products or services through the AJC Web site, we also collect order information and credit card numbers. Under no circumstances does the American Jewish Committee divulge any information about an individual user to a third party.

We also do not knowingly collect information from children. If we request this information in the future, we will notify you in advance and you may provide this information only if you so elect to do so on an "opt-in" basis only.


When you visit our website, we may place a text file about you called a “cookie” in the browser files of your computer. A cookie is a text file of information placed on your hard drive by a Web site. Generally Web sites use the information to improve your experience in their site. For example, a cookie allows the ability to personalize information, or to help with on-line sales/services, or simply for the purposes of tracking popular pages on a site or demographics. Cookies also provide programmers with a quick and convenient means of keeping site content fresh and relevant to the user's interests. This information can be valuable to targeting content or advertising to you. The cookie itself does not contain personal information although it will enable us to relate your use of this site to information that you have specifically and knowingly provided. A cookie can’t read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites. AJC uses cookies to track user traffic patterns.

You can refuse cookies by turning them off in your browser. If you’ve set your browser to warn you before accepting cookies, you will receive the warning message with each cookie. You do not need to have cookies turned on to use this site.

Security and Enforcement

American Jewish Committee protects your personal information from loss, misuse, alteration, or unauthorized disclosure by encrypting the data which you provide us with current encryption tools, including HTTPS (Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure) and SSL (Secure Socket Layer) protocols and by requiring employees with access to personal data to comply with our privacy policy. AJC operates secure data networks protected by industry standard firewall and password protection systems. Our security and privacy policies are periodically reviewed and enhanced as necessary and only authorized individuals have access to the information provided by our customers.
