  • Data Collection
  • We collect Personal Data regarding our Customers as well as data regarding Visitors to our Site. Such data is typically collected and generated through the Visitor’s or Customer’s interaction with our Services, through automatic means, directly from such Visitor or Customer, or other third parties.

    1. Data received from you: You may provide us with Personal Data such as your e-mail address, when you sign-up for our newsletter or contact us through our Websites.

We may also receive your contact details (e.g., your name, contact details, preferences and interests) from our business partners or services providers, and through the use of tools and channels commonly used for connecting brands with individuals, such as Instagram and Facebook.

     

  • Data Uses

  • Data Location & Retention
  • Data Location: Your Personal Data may be maintained, processed and stored by our authorized affiliates and Service Providers (defined below) in North America, the EU and other jurisdictions, as necessary for the proper delivery of our Services, or as may be required by law.

    Maapilim is headquartered in Israel, a jurisdiction which is considered by the European Commission to be offering an adequate level of protection for the Personal Data of EU Member State residents.

    While privacy laws may vary between jurisdictions, Maapilim and its affiliates and Service Providers are each committed to protect Personal Data in accordance with this Privacy Policy and customary industry standards, regardless of any lesser legal requirements that may apply in their jurisdiction.

    Data Retention: We retain our Visitors’ and Customers’ Personal Data for as long as reasonably necessary in order to maintain and expand our relationship, manage orders, and to provide them with our Services.

    We will also retain your Personal Data for as long as is required in order to comply with our legal and contractual obligations, or to protect ourselves from any potential disputes (i.e. as required by laws applicable to log-keeping, records and bookkeeping, and in order to have proof and evidence concerning our relationship, should any legal issues arise), in accordance with our data retention policy.

    Please note that except as required by applicable law, we will not be obligated to retain your Personal Data for any particular period, and we are free to securely delete it for any reason and at any time, with or without notice to you. If you have any questions about our data retention policy, please contact us by e-mail at hello@maapilim.com.

  • Data Sharing
  • Legal Compliance: We may disclose or allow government and law enforcement officials access to your Personal Data, in response to a subpoena, search warrant or court order (or similar requirement), or in compliance with applicable laws and regulations. Such disclosure or access may occur if we believe in good faith that we are legally compelled to do so, or that disclosure is appropriate in connection with efforts to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding actual or suspected illegal activity, fraud, or other wrongdoing.

    Service Providers: We engage selected Third Party companies and individuals to perform services complementary to our own (e.g. hosting services, data analytics services, marketing and advertising services, data and cyber security services, payment processing services, Customer engagement services, e-mail distribution and monitoring services, and our business, legal and financial advisors) (collectively, “Service Providers“). These Service Providers may have access to your Personal Data, depending on each of their specific roles and purposes in facilitating and enhancing our Services, and may only use it for such purposes.

    One of our Service Providers in particular is our e-commerce platform, Shopify. This platform allows us to sell our products online and simplify your user experience. When you access or place an order with Maapilim through the online shop, Shopify collects your Customer information, for example for risk and fraud screening. Therefore, whilst Maapilim makes use of Shopify, please refer to Shopify’s Privacy Policy, available at https://www.shopify.com/legal/privacy.

    We also use a tool called “Google Analytics”, to collect information about use of our Services. Google Analytics collects information such as how often Customers visit the Services, what pages they visit when they do so, and what other sites they used prior to coming to our Services. We use the information we get from Google Analytics to maintain and improve the Services and our Products. We do not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with personally identifiable data. Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to and use of the Services is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Service, available at https://www.google.com/analytics/terms/us.html, and the Google Privacy Policy, available at https://policies.google.com/privacy. You can learn more about how Google collects and processes data specifically in connection with Google Analytics at https://policies.google.com/technologies/partner-sites. You may prevent your data from being used by Google Analytics by downloading and installing the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on, available at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/.

    Protecting Rights and Safety: We may share your Personal Data with others if we believe in good faith that this will help protect the rights, property or personal safety of Maapilim, any of our Visitors or Customers, or any members of the general public.

    Maapilim Subsidiaries and Affiliated Companies: We may share Personal Data internally within our group for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy. In addition, should Maapilim or any of its subsidiaries or affiliates undergo any change in control, including by means of merger, acquisition or purchase of substantially all of its assets, your Personal Data may be shared with the parties involved in such event. If we believe that such change in control might materially affect your Personal Data then stored with us, we will notify you of this event and the choices you may have via e-mail or prominent notice on our Services.

    For the avoidance of doubt, Maapilim may share your Personal Data in additional manners, pursuant to your explicit approval, or if we are legally obligated to do so, or if we have successfully rendered such data non-personal and anonymous. We may transfer, share or otherwise use non-personal data at our sole discretion and without the need for further approval.

  • Children’s Privacy
  • Our Services are not designed to attract children under the age of 16. We do not knowingly collect Personal Data from children and do not wish to do so.

If you believe that we might have any such data, please contact us by e-mail at hello@maapilim.com.

  • Data Controller/Processor
  • Certain data protection laws and regulations, such as the GDPR, typically distinguish between two main roles for parties processing Personal Data: the “Data Controller”, that determines the purposes and means of processing; and the “Data Processor”, that processes the data on behalf of the Data Controller. Below we explain how these roles apply to our Services, to the extent that such laws and regulations apply.

    Maapilim is the “Data Controller” of its Visitors’ and Customers’ Personal Data, and with respect to which, assumes the responsibilities of Data Controller (solely to the extent applicable under law), as set forth in this Privacy Policy.

    Third parties we engage with, such as billing services, are processors of Personal Data. They will process such Customers’ data on our behalf and in accordance with our reasonable instructions, subject to our Terms of Service and other commercial agreements.

  • Additional Notices
  • Updates and Amendments: We may update and amend this Privacy Policy from time to time by posting an amended version on our Services. The amended version will be effective as of the date it is so published. We will provide a 10-day prior notice if we believe any substantial changes are involved via any of the communication means available to us or via the Services. After such notice period, all amendments shall be deemed accepted by you.

    External Links: While our Services may contain links to other websites or services, we are not responsible for their privacy practices, and encourage you to pay attention when you leave our Services for the website or application of such third parties and to read the privacy policies of each and every website and service you visit.
