2. Personal Identifiable Information.
2.1. Ad Maven and/or Third Parties may collect PII (as defined below) from Users if such Users voluntarily submit such information. PII may be voluntary provided in a variety of ways, such as when Users visit the Site, register on the Site, place an order, subscribe to the newsletter, respond to a survey, and fill out a form. User is advised that by providing Ad Maven PII User gives his consent to Ad Maven to make use of such PII. PII - “Personally Identifiable Information” means any information which might reasonably be used to specifically identify User and may include, among other, User's name, title, company, address, email.
2.2. If PII is collected by Ad Maven, User is at any time entitled, under the Israeli Protection of Privacy Law, 5741-1981, whether himself or through a proxy so authorized in writing or through his/her legal guardian, to peruse information pertaining to him/herself that is stored in a database. Having perused such information and found it to be inaccurate, incomplete, unclear or out of date, such a person may contact the database owner and request to correct, amend or delete the data in question. Had the database owner refused to permit access or comply with a request to amend or delete information, the applicant may appeal to a magistrate’s court as stipulated by applicable regulations.
2.3. Moreover, should the information contained in the database be used for purposes of personally soliciting User, based on User's affiliation to any population group as determined according to one or more attributes of people whose names are included in the database (“solicitation for commercial purposes”), the Protection of Privacy Law, 5741-1981, entitles User to submit a written request that such information pertaining to the User be deleted from the database. In such a case, the Website management will delete any information required for solicitation for commercial purposes as stated above. Please note that deleting such information might prevent User from continuing to receive services from us.
3. Tracking Technologies and Use and Setting of Digital Identifiers.
3.1. Digital identifier is information a site may put on User's hard disk so that this information and other related information may be utilized by such site at later time.

3.3. Ad Maven and/or Third Parties employ sometime a software technology called clear gifs (a.k.a. web beacons/web bugs), that help Ad Maven and/or Third Parties better manage content on our site by informing Ad Maven what content is effective.
