We have implemented appropriate technical, organizational and security measures designed to protect your Personal Data. We limit access to your Personal Data only to employees who need to have access to such information in order to provide you all the activities related to the Services and / or Products. However, please note that we cannot guarantee that the information will not be compromised as a result of unauthorized penetration to our servers. As the security of information depends in part on the security of the computer, device or network you use to communicate with us and the security you use to protect your user IDs and passwords, please make sure to take appropriate measures to protect this information.

Videos and photos uploaded for the purpose of  our Product and Services are kept for up to one week and then deleted. We retain Personal Data that you provide to us where we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so (for example, as long as is required to contact you about our Products and / or Services).

When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your Personal Data, we securely delete the information or anonymize it or, if this is not possible, then we will safely store your Personal Data and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.

If you have elected to receive marketing communications from us, we retain information about your marketing preferences for a reasonable period from the date you last expressed interest in our content, Products, and / or Services, such as when you last opened an email from us or ceased using our Products or Services.

Where we transfer your Personal Data outside of EU/EEA (for example to third parties who provide us with services), we will generally obtain contractual commitments from them to protect your Personal Data. When we engage in such transfers of personal data, we rely on i) Adequacy Decisions as adopted by European Commission on the basis of Article 45 of Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (GDPR) (for example, when we access from Israel), or ii) Standard Contractual Clauses issued by the European Commission.
