  1. International transfers


This Site is hosted on servers located in the United States and Israel. PIT will endeavor to meet those data protection laws and regulations (including the General Data Protection Regulation, or “GDPR,” when and as applicable) to which we may be subject.


General Data Protection Regulation


General Data Protection Regulation (“ GDPR ”) was passed by the European Parliament and establishes a standard for data privacy for all member states of the European Economic Area (“EEA”) (“EU”).  Its purpose, with certain limitations and exceptions, is to give EEA residents (described as “data subjects” by the GDPR) certain rights over their Personal Information, including, the:

  • Right of access: Individuals can ask for a copy of the Personal Information retained about them and an explanation of how it is being used.
  • Right to rectification: Individuals have the right to correct, revise or remove any of the Personal Information retained about them at any time.
  • Right to be forgotten: Individuals can ask to delete their Personal Information.  At your request, we will remove your contact information from the system, and we will not intentionally contact you again.
  • Right to restrict processing: If an individual believes, for example, that their Personal Information is inaccurate or collected unlawfully, the individual may request limited use of their Personal Information.
  • Right of portability: Individuals have the right to receive their Personal Information in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format.
  • Right to object: Where an individual decides that they no longer wish to allow their Personal Information to be included in analytics or to receive direct marketing emails or other personalized (targeted) marketing content at any time, the individual may opt out of use of their data for these purposes.


If you are a data subject falling under the scope of the GDPR, you can exercise the above rights. Please note that these rights are not absolute, and limitations/exceptions may apply in some cases.


In respect of transfers outside of the country, we either implement the Model Clauses pursuant to Commission decision 2004/915/EC or 2010/87/EU (as appropriate) with the recipient of your Personal Information; and/or ensure that the recipient of your data is registered with the EU-US Privacy Shield.


You can obtain further information in this respect (including a copy of the Model Clauses) by contacting us.



  1. Data Security


The safety of your Personal Information is important to us, and we use various technical and organization measures to secure it.


We employ commercially reasonable encryption (TLS technology), data security, and intrusion prevention technologies to protect and secure all personal information in our possession. However, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure, and unfortunately, no method of transmission over the internet or method of electronic storage is completely secure. Although we take commercially reasonable measures to safeguard against unauthorized disclosures of information, we cannot guarantee the security of your data. Therefore, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security, and any transmission of personal information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Site. You acknowledge and agree that you are solely responsible for maintaining the security and confidentiality of your account username and password.



  1. How Long We Keep Personal Information


We will retain your Personal Information only for as long as it is necessary to fulfill the purposes for which we collected it, including satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.


To determine the appropriate retention period for Personal Information, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of that Personal Information, the purposes for which we processed the data and whether we those purposes may be achieved by another means, and the applicable legal requirements
