Community always connected to Israel

Welcome to IAC360 Platform!
Israeli American Council (“IAC,” “IAC360”, “we,” “us,” “our”) provides its Service (described below) to you through its website (the “Site”), programs, events and activities (collectively referred to as “Programs”) subject to the following Terms of Service (as amended from time to time, the “Terms of Service”). We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to change or modify portions of these Terms of Service at any time. If we do this, we will post the changes on this page and will indicate at the top of this page the date these terms were last revised.

Please read these Terms of Service carefully, as they contain an agreement to arbitrate and other important information regarding your legal rights, remedies, and obligations. The agreement to arbitrate requires (with limited exception) that you submit claims you have against us to binding and final arbitration, and further (1) you will only be permitted to pursue claims against IAC on an individual basis, not as a plaintiff or class member in any class or representative action or proceeding, and (2) you will only be permitted to seek relief (including monetary, injunctive, and declaratory relief) on an individual basis.

When using certain aspects of the Services or using certain Services, you will be subject to any additional terms applicable to such services that may be posted on the Service from time to time, including, without limitation, our Privacy Policy. All such terms are hereby incorporated by reference into these Terms of Service.

IAC360 has no control over such sites and resources and IAC360 is not responsible for and does not endorse such sites and resources.

You agree to release, indemnify and hold IAC and its affiliates and their officers, employees, directors and agents (collectively, “Indemnitees”) harmless from any and all losses, damages, expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, rights, claims, actions of any kind and injury (including death) arising out of or relating to your use of the Service, any User Content, your connection to the Service, your violation of these Terms of Service or your violation of any rights of another. If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which says: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.” If you are a resident of another jurisdiction, you waive any comparable statute or doctrine.

Disclaimer of Warranties

YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK. THE SERVICE IS PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS. IAC360 EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT.

IAC360 MAKES NO WARRANTY THAT (I) THE SERVICE WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS, (II) THE SERVICE WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED, TIMELY, SECURE, OR ERROR-FREE, (III) THE RESULTS THAT MAY BE OBTAINED FROM THE USE OF THE SERVICE WILL BE ACCURATE OR RELIABLE, OR (IV) THE QUALITY OF ANY PRODUCTS, SERVICES, INFORMATION, OR OTHER MATERIAL PURCHASED OR OBTAINED BY YOU THROUGH THE SERVICE WILL MEET YOUR EXPECTATIONS.

Limitation of Liability

YOU EXPRESSLY UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT IAC WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY DAMAGES, OR DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF PROFITS INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF GOODWILL, USE, DATA OR OTHER INTANGIBLE LOSSES, WHETHER BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE, RESULTING FROM: (I) THE USE OR THE INABILITY TO USE THE SERVICE; (II) THE COST OF PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE GOODS AND SERVICES RESULTING FROM ANY GOODS, DATA, INFORMATION OR SERVICES PURCHASED OR OBTAINED OR MESSAGES RECEIVED OR TRANSACTIONS ENTERED INTO THROUGH OR FROM THE SERVICE; (III) UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO OR ALTERATION OF YOUR TRANSMISSIONS OR DATA; (IV) STATEMENTS OR CONDUCT OF ANY THIRD PARTY ON THE SERVICE; OR (V) ANY OTHER MATTER RELATING TO THE SERVICE. IN NO EVENT WILL IAC’S TOTAL LIABILITY TO YOU FOR ALL DAMAGES, LOSSES OR CAUSES OF ACTION EXCEED THE AMOUNT YOU HAVE PAID IAC IN THE LAST SIX (6) MONTHS, OR, IF GREATER, ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS ($100).

SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE DISCLAIMER OR EXCLUSION OF CERTAIN WARRANTIES OR THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES. ACCORDINGLY, SOME OF THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS SET FORTH ABOVE MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU OR BE ENFORCEABLE WITH RESPECT TO YOU. IF YOU ARE DISSATISFIED WITH ANY PORTION OF THE SERVICE OR WITH THESE TERMS OF SERVICE, YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY IS TO DISCONTINUE USE OF THE SERVICE.

IF YOU ARE A USER FROM NEW JERSEY, THE FOREGOING SECTIONS TITLED “DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES” AND “LIMITATION OF LIABILITY” ARE INTENDED TO BE ONLY AS BROAD AS IS PERMITTED UNDER THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF NEW JERSEY. IF ANY PORTION OF THESE SECTIONS IS HELD TO BE INVALID UNDER THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF NEW JERSEY, THE INVALIDITY OF SUCH PORTION SHALL NOT AFFECT THE VALIDITY OF THE REMAINING PORTIONS OF THE APPLICABLE SECTIONS.

Dispute Resolution By Binding Arbitration: PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY AS IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS

Agreement to Arbitrate: This Dispute Resolution by Binding Arbitration section is referred to in this Terms of Service as the “Arbitration Agreement.” You agree that any and all disputes or claims that have arisen or may arise between you and IAC, whether arising out of or relating to this Terms of Service (including any alleged breach thereof), the Service, any advertising, any aspect of the relationship or transactions between us, shall be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration in the State of California, rather than a court, in accordance with the terms of this Arbitration Agreement, except that you may assert individual claims in small claims court, if your claims qualify. Further, this Arbitration Agreement does not preclude you from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state, or local agencies, and such agencies can, if the law allows, seek relief against us on your behalf. You agree that, by entering into this Terms of Service, you and IAC are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. Your rights will be determined by a neutral arbitrator, not a judge or jury. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement.

Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief: YOU AND IAC AGREE THAT EAC MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING. UNLESS BOTH YOU AND IAC AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S OR PARTY’S CLAIMS AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, OR CLASS PROCEEDING. ALSO, THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF (INCLUDING MONETARY, INJUNCTIVE, AND DECLARATORY RELIEF) ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF NECESSITATED BY THAT PARTY’S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM(S). Nothing in this Paragraph or in this Arbitration Agreement more generally is intended to waive non-waivable rights under the Private Attorneys General Act, Cal. Lab. Code § 2698 et seq.

Pre-Arbitration Dispute Resolution: IAC is always interested in resolving disputes amicably and efficiently, and most customer concerns can be resolved quickly and to the customer’s satisfaction by emailing customer support at info@israeliamerican.org. If such efforts prove unsuccessful, a party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other, by certified mail, a written Notice of Dispute (“Notice”). The Notice to IAC should be sent to IAC at 5900 Canoga Ave, Suit 390, Woodland Hills CA 91367 (“Notice Address”). The Notice must (i) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute and (ii) set forth the specific relief sought. If IAC and you do not resolve the claim within sixty (60) calendar days after the Notice is received, you or IAC may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by IAC or you shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, to which you or IAC is entitled.

Arbitration Procedures: Arbitration will be conducted by a neutral arbitrator in accordance with the American Arbitration Association’s (“AAA”) rules and procedures, including the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes (collectively, the “AAA Rules”), as modified by this Arbitration Agreement. For information on the AAA, please visit its website, https://www.adr.org/. Information about the AAA Rules and fees for consumer disputes can be found at the AAA’s consumer arbitration page, https://www.adr.org/consumer. If there is any inconsistency between any term of the AAA Rules and any term of this Arbitration Agreement, the applicable terms of this Arbitration Agreement will control unless the arbitrator determines that the application of the inconsistent Arbitration Agreement terms would not result in a fundamentally fair arbitration. The arbitrator must also follow the provisions of these Terms of Service as a court would. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including, but not limited to, issues relating to the scope, enforceability, and arbitrability of this Arbitration Agreement. Although arbitration proceedings are usually simpler and more streamlined than trials and other judicial proceedings, the arbitrator can award the same damages and relief on an individual basis that a court can award to an individual under the Terms of Service and applicable law. Decisions by the arbitrator are enforceable in court and may be overturned by a court only for very limited reasons.

Costs of Arbitration: Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees (collectively, the “Arbitration Fees”) will be governed by the AAA Rules, unless otherwise provided in this Arbitration Agreement.

Confidentiality: All aspects of the arbitration proceeding, and any ruling, decision, or award by the arbitrator, will be strictly confidential for the benefit of all parties.

Severability: If a court or the arbitrator decides that any term or provision of this Arbitration Agreement (other than the subsection (b) titled “Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief” above) is invalid or unenforceable, the parties agree to replace such term or provision with a term or provision that is valid and enforceable and that comes closest to expressing the intention of the invalid or unenforceable term or provision, and this Arbitration Agreement shall be enforceable as so modified. If a court or the arbitrator decides that any of the provisions of subsection (b) above titled “Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief” are invalid or unenforceable, then the entirety of this Arbitration Agreement shall be null and void. The remainder of the Terms of Service will continue to apply.

Termination

You agree that IAC360, in its sole discretion, may suspend or terminate your account (or any part thereof) or use of the Service and remove and discard any content within the Service, for any reason, including, without limitation, for lack of use or if IAC360 believes that you have violated or acted inconsistently with the letter or spirit of these Terms of Service. Any suspected fraudulent, abusive or illegal activity that may be grounds for termination of your use of Service, may be referred to appropriate law enforcement authorities. IAC360 may also in its sole discretion and at any time discontinue providing the Service, or any part thereof, with or without notice. You agree that any termination of your access to the Service under any provision of this Terms of Service may be effected without prior notice, and acknowledge and agree that IAC360 may immediately deactivate or delete your account and all related information and files in your account and/or bar any further access to such files or the Service. Further, you agree that IAC360 will not be liable to you or any third party for any termination of your access to the Service.

User Disputes

You agree that you are solely responsible for your interactions with any other user in connection with the Service and IAC360 will have no liability or responsibility with respect thereto.

IAC360 reserves the right, but has no obligation, to become involved in any way it deems necessary with disputes between you and any other user of the Service.

General

These Terms of Service constitute the entire agreement between you and IAC360 and govern your use of the Service, superseding any prior agreements between you and IAC360 with respect to the Service. These Terms of Service will be governed by the laws of the State of California without regard to its conflict of law provisions. With respect to any disputes or claims not subject to arbitration, as set forth above, you and IAC360 agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located within Los Angeles county, California. The failure of IAC360 to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms of Service will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of these Terms of Service is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of these Terms of Service remain in full force and effect. You may not assign these Terms of Service without the prior written consent of IAC360, but IAC360 may assign or transfer these Terms of Service, in whole or in part, without restriction. The section titles in these Terms of Service are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. Notices to you may be made via either email or regular mail. The Service may also provide notices to you of changes to these Terms of Service or other matters by displaying notices or links to notices generally on the Service.

Privacy Policy

Your privacy is very important to the Israeli-American Council (“IAC,” “we” or “us”).  In order to best protect your information, we have adopted this privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) which applies to any and all information about you that we collect.  It is important to note that this Privacy Policy only applies to information that we collect through www.israeliamerican.org and related websites that we own and control (the “Web Site”).  Therefore, if you click any links on the Web Site that lead to web sites owned or operated by third parties or if you access any other web site, this Privacy Policy no longer applies.  Moreover, the Web Site contains framed links to Facebook and Twitter.  If you input information into these frames, that information is sent to those parties and is not controlled by us or governed by this Privacy Policy.  You should review the privacy policies adopted by those third parties to ensure that you know what information is being collected and for what it is being used.  Also note that the Web Site is not directed at children under the age of 18 years.  While registration is not required in order to access the Web Site, certain features and areas of the Web Site require you to register, create an account and become a Member of IAC (each, an “IAC Member” and collectively, “IAC Members”).

What Information We Collect and How We Collect It

Some of the information we collect is Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”).  PII, collected only with your consent, may include your first and last name, mailing address, email address, telephone number, credit card and other payment information, [add any other PII collected] and any other information that you provide to us that is linked to your identity.  We will only collect PII that is relevant to the services that we provide and the maintenance of the Web Site.  This may occur, for example, in connection with registering to become an IAC Member, subscribing to any of our services, signing up to receive newsletters, responses you provide to survey questions, inquiries you may make through our Web Site, phone, mail or email and any other information you provide to us.  Remember that you always have the option not to provide information by choosing not to use the Web Site or by not using the particular feature of the Web Site for which the information is being collected.

We may also collect information through the use of “cookies”.  Cookies are small pieces of data that are stored on your computer by your browser.  This data helps our Web Site manage your experience while you visit and helps us determine whether you are a first-time visitor.  You can always tell your Internet browser that you don’t want to have any cookies downloaded to your computer.  Check with the provider of your particular browser to find out how.  Before you do however, note that deleting cookies or directing your browser to refuse them may limit your ability to use certain portions of our Web Site that require cookies to function.  Lastly, third parties who partner with us to display advertising and other content, may also use cookies to collect or store data.

The last form of information we may collect is non-personally identifying information.  As an example, we may collect information as visitors browse our Web Site such as the number of people that visit, what pages are visited and from where visitors come (like Google or Bing).  We may also compile this data to enable statistical analysis of our services that would be used internally or with external assistance to make improvements to our Web Site.  We may also provide this information to third parties, including advertisers.  We may also collect information from IAC Members about [is any other non-PII collected].  Remember though that this information is not personally identifiable.

California Do Not Track Procedures
We respect your choices about what PII we collect and what PII third parties can collect through us.  Therefore, we will follow any Do-Not-Track instructions from your browser and any other direction that you give us regarding collection and dissemination of PII.  Note however that any Do-Not-Track or similar mechanism will not affect our collection of the data that you voluntarily provide to us when signing up for any of our services, as detailed above, or when posting on any of our forums or blogs.  This is also the case for third parties who wish to collect PII from us about you.  Any information that you volunteer to us that is visible to the public could be collected by third parties.  So, please do not provide us with any information that you do not want collected.

Our Use of Information
We may use the information we collect for a number of purposes.  For instance we may use it to respond to your inquiries and otherwise correspond with you, to process transactions that you request, to maintain your account (if you have one), to maintain the security and integrity of our Web Site and services, to conduct market research or surveys, and for the administration, review and/or the improvement of the content of our Web Site and services.  We may also use your information to communicate with you about services that we think may interest you.  However, we will always give you the opportunity to opt out of receiving such communications as well as any newsletter for which you sign up.

Our Policy for Disclosing Your Information to Third Parties
Again, your privacy is important to us and as a result we are protective of your information.  Except as stated above, there are only three instances in which we will disclose any of your information to anyone but you, as follows:

  1. With your consent. We may transmit your information to a third party when you give us permission to do so. This may occur when we complete a transaction that you request.  This also may happen when you make your information publicly available by posting on our forums or blogs or in creating your personal profile (if you chose to).  Because this information is public, we cannot control how others treat it and we ask that you exercise care in deciding what information you chose to share.
  2. If we are acquired by another company. If another company acquires IAC, that company will take on all responsibility for the personal information we collect and it will assume all rights and obligations with respect to that information. Should this happen, the acquiring company may develop its own policy with respect to your information.
  3. If we are required to disclose information by law. When directed by a court of law or other government entity or if we have a good faith basis to believe such action is necessary to comply with the law, we may be obligated to disclose personal information. In such event, we will comply with the law and make commercially reasonable efforts to notify you, if lawful.

We do not sell or distribute PII to any third parties except as set forth above.  However, all of the information that you disclose in your profile, blog posts, comments and other public portions of the Web Site becomes public information.  Personal information in your IAC Member profile is shared with other IAC Members unless you specifically direct that your IAC Member profile be anonymous.  Bear in mind that if you wish to be anonymous, you may not be able to take advantage of some of the functionality of our Web Site.  If you terminate your IAC membership, we may retain your personal information for administrative purposes but will not display it publicly or share it in any other way.

Access to Your Information
We will provide you with access to PII you provide us for as long as we maintain that information in a readily accessible format. We will also work with you to correct any error in your PII.  If you wish to access or correct any PII that you have submitted through our Web Site, or to have us completely remove your PII from our systems, please send an e-mail with your specific request to info@israeliamerican.org.  You may change visibility of your personal information throughout the site by editing your personal profile.

Security
We have in place physical, administrative and electronic safeguards to keep your information safe.  For instance, we only allow access to employees who require your information to do their jobs and we use industry standard SSL encryption to secure your data.

Changes to the Privacy Policy
We may make changes to this Privacy Policy from time to time.  If we do, we’ll be sure to try to notify you at the email address you have provided us and to post the date of the latest revision herein.

If you have questions about our Privacy Policy please contact us at [info@israeliamerican.org].

Photo Release

I grant the Israeli-American Council (IAC) permission to record my likeness and voice on a video, audio, photographic, digital, electronic, or any other medium (collectively referred to as ‘the recordings’). I acknowledge that all rights, title, and interest to the recordings will belong to the Israeli-American Council. The Israeli-American Council may use, reproduce, exhibit, or distribute in any medium (e.g. print publications, videotapes, DVD, internet, Facebook and Instagram live steaming, any other live streaming, podcast) these recordings for any purpose that the Israeli-American Council, and those acting pursuant to its authority, deem appropriate, including promotional or advertising efforts. These recordings may also be placed in the Israeli-American Council archives. I also allow the Israeli-American Council to publish the text and/or transcript of this recording.

While participating in events held or sponsored by the Israeli American Council, (“IAC”) “social distancing” must be practiced, and face coverings worn at all times to reduce the risks of exposure to COVID-19.  Because COVID-19 is extremely contagious, IAC has put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19.  However, IAC cannot guarantee that its participants, volunteers, partners, or others in attendance will not become infected with COVID-19.

In light of the ongoing spread of COVID-19, individuals who fall within any of the categories below should not engage in IAC events and/or other activities. By attending an IAC event, you certify that you do not fall into any of the following categories:

DUTY TO SELF-MONITOR:

Participants and volunteers agree to self-monitor for signs and symptoms of COVID-19 (symptoms typically include fever, cough, and shortness of breath) and, contact IAC at info@israeliamerican.org if they experience symptoms of COVID-19 within 14 days after participating in an event or volunteering with IAC.

ASSUMPTION OF THE RISK

I acknowledge and understand the following:
