Tenders, free participation in drawing lots for prizes and promotions
Our websites sometimes contain messages regarding promotions organized by us and in some cases we could allow you to participate electronically. For these cases we shall use the information you have provided for the purposes of the promotion (for example to contact you if you have won). After expiry of a specific time frame, the collected personal information from your database could be used to organize repeated campaigns, as well as to inform you of the terms of our new campaigns.
Questionnaires and inquiry
Sometimes we would ask the visitors of our websites to complete participation forms or provide opinions on studies or questionnaires. The questionnaires help us figure out your needs. In case our website has published sample responses for selection during participation in studies, no further information providing options for personal identification shall be included.

But they shall be allowed to use this information for other purposes and they shall be required to keep privacy of the information.

We shall not use children personal information for any other purposes, except for administration and compliance with the terms of the promotion. We shall not use this information to build databases and we shall not share information with third parties (other than companies, providing auxiliary services, as detailed hereinabove or business partners, with which it shall be evident that we are organizing the promotion). We keep in our database the personal information for the children and the parents in the framework of a reasonable term after conclusion of the promotions, unless the parents have expressly requested deletion of such information from our archives.
We can also allow a child to send us an e-mail or through our website to send an e-mail to one of its friends. We shall respond or deliver such electronic messages, but we shall not keep the names, e-mail addresses or the electronic messages in our operative database. We shall not keep this information or share it with third parties (other than companies providing support services, as detailed hereinabove).
Any parents, after having been properly identified in the respective way, could review all available information we have collected from their children in case such information is still kept in our operative database. Parents could also request deleting such information from our database and refuse to give their consent for further collection or use of information regarding their children.
