Effective date: January 1, 2024

1. Introduction

1.1. Moshe Barak (“I”, “me”, “my”) is the owner and administrator of the website www.israel-taxi.com and all its subdomains (the “website”). The website serves as an online platform offering visitors and users (“you”) information about private transportation services in Israel (the “service(s)”). These services may be provided by me or any of my partners, sub-contractors, employees, affiliates, subsidiaries, licensors, agents and vendors (collectively, “my representatives“).

1.2. The purpose of this privacy policy is to inform you of the practices regarding the collection and use of personal information that may be collected and processed as part of your use of the website and/or the services offered through the website. This privacy policy applies when you visit or use the website and/or use any of the services offered. This privacy policy also extends to all subsequent communications between you and me or any of my representatives arising from your use of the website whether you act as an individual or on behalf of a company or organization.

1.3. Unless otherwise stated in this privacy policy, the terms used herein have the same meanings as those specified in the ‘Terms of Use’, found on the website at www.israel-taxi.com/terms-of-use.

2. Collection of Information

The information collected from users of the website and/or the services may fall into two categories:
  • Non-personal information – Non-identifiable data collected and stored whenever you enter, connect to, access, or use the website.
  • Personal information – Individually identifiable information of a private and/or sensitive nature that can be provided either voluntarily or involuntarily.

2.1. Non-Personal Information

Anonymous and non-identifiable data, consisting of technical and behavioral information unrelated to a specific individual. While you can access, browse and use the website without disclosing any personal information, it automatically collects certain non-personal technical information. This includes but is not limited to, the type and version of your device and its operating system, browser type, screen resolution, device browser and keyboard language, Wi-Fi connectivity and the type and name of your device and/or browser, etc. Additionally, the website collects user behavioral information which may include your activities while using the website. For Analyzing this data I may use third-party service providers such as Google Analytics. These providers employ certain technologies like Cookies to obtain detailed analytics on users’ behavior during website browsing.

2.2. Personal Information

Individually identifiable information refers to data that can be linked to or associated with a specific individual and may include private and/or sensitive details, such as Internet Protocol (IP) address, Unique Device Identifier (UDID), UserID, or other unique identifiers for geo-location, analytics and security purposes. Additionally, such identifiers may be used for presenting advertisements. For advertising purposes, authorized third-party service providers may collect user’s advertising identifiers. You may voluntarily provide individually identifiable information when contacting me through the website to inquire about services or request a quote. Subsequent interactions, whether by telephone, email, or any other electronic means of communication, may also involve the provision of information such as your name, nationality, email address, phone number, country of residence, etc. This information may be collected, processed, monitored and/or remotely stored.

2.3. Email Tracking

I may use ‘web beacon pixel’ tracking technology within the email messages that I send to improve interactions with you and gain insights into whether my emails are opened and read. This tracking may involve capturing the time and date of opening my emails and the type of device you use. The ‘web beacon pixel’ is automatically deleted when you delete the email from your account. If you prefer not to download the ‘web beacon pixel’ to your device, you can adjust your email account settings to receive emails from me in plain text rather than HTML.

2.4. Payment

In order to finalize your reservation you will be required to pay a deposit by transferring money through online payment processors. This process involves providing specific personal Information such as a credit card number and related billing details. It is important to note that I do not store such sensitive information. I retain only general information related to transactions provided by these online payment processors, and I ensure the strict security of this data.

2.5. Cross-Reference

Please be aware that personal information may be cross-referenced with other personal information I have about you. Any non-personal information linked to or associated with any personal information will be considered as personal information as long as such linkage or association exists. I use third-party tracking services and usage logs, to track and analyze data from users of the website for security and fraud prevention purposes. Additionally, I may use Cookies to collect information about your use of the website.

2.6. Tracking and Cookies
