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“).

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.
