We collect and log the IP address of all visitors for the purpose of administering our system and gathering aggregate information about how our site is being used, including the pages visitors are viewing. We do not associate IP addresses with records containing personal information.

As do many other sites, luriechildrens.org uses cookies for information about the sources of our site traffic and to make personalization possible. Collecting this information does not allow us to personally identify you.

Visitors to our site must be aware that any messages sent to us via normal e-mail (not encrypted) are subject to interception by another Internet user while in transit to us.

In fact, routine e-mails should never be sent that contain private or confidential information of any kind that, if intercepted, could be damaging to the sender.
