Like most website operators, Israel Diaries collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request.

Certain visitors to Israel Diaries choose to interact with Israel Diaries in ways that require Israel Diaries to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Israel Diaries gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a subscription or who leave comments on blog posts to provide an email address. Israel Diaries requires such information in order to prevent spam and only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Israel Diaries. Israel Diaries does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
