Privacy Policy


Our commitment to privacy
Temple Israel Portsmouth (TIP) knows that you care how information about you is used and shared, and we appreciate you trusting that we will do so carefully and sensibly. We believe that personally identifying information, such as your name, postal and email address and telephone number, is private and confidential. You can have general access to our site without providing any personally identifying information. TIP collects personally identifying information only when you voluntarily submit it, such as when you email comments, request information, sign up for a discussion group or register for an event.

Release of information to third parties
TIP does not release your personally identifying information to third parties unless you have given us permission to do so or unless such release is required to comply with the law or to protect the rights or safety of TIP for our website users. Information that is collected will not be sold, shared or rented to any outside company or organization. Information that is collected will be used solely for the stated and intended purposes.

Your Email and IP Address
We use your email address and IP address to diagnose problems with our server and to administer our website. Your IP address provides information about how you and others navigate through and use our site. Your IP address may also be used to gather broad demographic information. Your IP address will be logged and stored when you visit our site. TIP does not sell, market or distribute these addresses to any other organizations and will not use it for purposes other than indicated in this policy.

Internet and Email
Safeguards are in place to assure safe delivery of the electronic messages sent via email and through our website, but there is no assurance that such messages will not be intercepted.

If you send us information through electronic mail, you agree that we may do the same in communicating with you.

We use PayPal to process all credit card transactions on our website. PayPal maintains its own privacy and security policy.
