Privacy Policy

What is the Privacy Policy?

The Table to Table – Leket Israel Leket Israel (the “Leket Israel”), treats the privacy of Leket Israel’s Website users with respect; the Website operates at:, and any other landing page and additional domain at Leket Israel’s discretion (the “Website”).

This document will provide you with an explanation about the privacy policy employed by Leket Israel. It reviews the manner in which Leket Israel uses information provided to it by the User, as well as what information will be collected about you.

In this Privacy Policy, the phrase “personal information,” means any information that can be reasonably used to identify you, including your given name and surname, your address, your phone number, and more. The consents you grant in respect of the personal information about you will also apply to data about you that does not constitute personal information, such as your private affairs and/or information relating to your personal life, etc.

This Privacy Policy is an integral part of the Terms of Use of the Website and the Additional Terms and Conditions (as defined therein) which will be referred to hereinafter jointly as (the “Binding documents”). Thus, for instance, provisions regarding limiting Leket Israel’s liability, applicable law and jurisdiction, as well as the possibility of assigning Leket Israel’s rights (and your consents granted under this Privacy Policy), will also apply to this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy is drafted employing the masculine linguistic form for the sake of convenience only, but it naturally refers also to women. Terms that are not defined in this Privacy Policy shall bear the meaning ascribed to them in the Terms of Use.

Reporting a Violation of Your Privacy

If you believe that your privacy has been violated, please contact us. Leket Israel’s representatives are available to you for any request, response, question, or complaint. Full details on how to contact us, including an online form designed for this purpose, are located on the “Contact Us” page on the Website.

Types of Personal Information at Leket Israel and How to Provide it

Leket Israel’s Website

Use of the Website does not involve any registration process, or provision of personal information. However –

Providing information voluntarily. The Website is comprised of various sections, including registration forms, contact forms, or other forms, through which you will be asked to provide us with information and contact details, in accordance with any relevant need and circumstance. Some of these registration forms are permanent forms, while others are ‘seasonal,’ depending on the various activities performed by Leket Israel. Thus, for example –

  • To report any surplus agricultural produce to Leket Israel, you will be prompted to provide your full name, phone number, email, and relevant location details.
  • To subscribe to receive Leket Israel’s information newsletters, you will only be prompted to provide your email.
  • To register to volunteer at Leket Israel, you will be asked to provide your full name, phone number, email, city of residence, as well as note the voluntary activity in which you wish to participate, and whether you have ever participated in Leket Israel’s activities in the past.
  • To the extent that you express an interest in any of Leket Israel’s ‘wanted ads,’ you will be asked to note the desired position, your full name, address, phone number, and email, as well as attach a resume.
  • In order to contact Leket Israel virtually, you will be asked to provide, on the ‘contact us’ form, the subject matter of your request, your full name, email, phone number, and fill out the contents of your message.

Automatic Collection. Leket Israel also collects information through your use of the Website; products and/or services appearing in it, or redirecting to and from it, including information about the User’s usage habits. See details below.

Events Held by Leket Israel. When registering for an event and/or at the various events held by Leket Israel, you will be asked to provide various details such as: your full name, email, telephone number, and the number of participants in the event.

Communication with Leket Israel. When communicating with Leket Israel, Leket Israel may document such communication. For example, it is possible that we may document your conversations with any Leket Israel agent, as well as emails and other correspondence with Leket Israel, agreements with Leket Israel, information related to your voluntary work with Leket Israel, as well as other information you may provide Leket Israel as part of the interaction between you and Leket Israel.

Non-Identifying Data. Leket Israel may collect non-identifying data, which includes aggregate data, statistical data, and other data derived from your personal information. The consents granted in the setting of the Binding Documents shall apply also to these data. You acknowledge that this data is owned by Leket Israel, and that it will be entitled to make any use of it, and that you will not be entitled to any consideration in respect thereof, or in connection with any personal information collected about you.

Information Collected by Third Parties

Third parties providing ‘third party content’ may collect data, information and/or personal information about you. As stipulated in the Binding Documents, Leket Israel is not responsible and/or liable for those third parties, the third-party content itself, or your use of it. Leket Israel is not responsible and/or liable for the third parties’ use of the personal information you choose to provide them with, or which they collect. Information that is collected by said third parties is subject to their own privacy policy and/or other similar documents, and we recommend that you read them carefully before using any third party content and/or providing any information about yourself.

Thus, for instance, the Website contains a link enabling the donation of money to Leket Israel. Clicking on the link redirects the User to the “Israel Donates” website, which is an external website, operated by the Israel Donates Corporation Ltd. [Comp. Reg. No. 514228766], and not by Leket Israel. Therefore, using the Israel Donates’ website is subject to that website’s privacy policy, and not to this Privacy Policy. Leket Israel does not collect or store credit card information.

The required fields will be clearly marked. You must provide only true, current, and complete details.

However, providing incorrect information, or failure to provide all necessary information, could prevent you from being able to complete the registration process on the relevant form, impair the quality of the services provided to you, or impair the ability to contact you, if and when necessary.

By submitting third parties’ personal information, you acknowledge that you have received said third party’s express consent to provide the information to Leket Israel to use this information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Providing information about a third party unlawfully, and providing incorrect information, could lead to sanctions against you, and at times even amount to a criminal offense.
