We at Bank Leumi (UK) plc welcome you to our web site and to the Leumi Surfer. This section details our policies relating to your privacy and the terms and conditions, relating to use of information and materials on the web site.
We consider privacy, and the confidentiality and security of information transmitted to and from our web site, to be of paramount importance and maintain high standards concerning privacy, confidentiality, and security. We will only collect personal information if you have chosen to provide it to us. You should not provide such information if you do not want us to collect it.
You can visit and use this web site without providing any information about yourself.
By using this website you agree to the placement of cookies on your computer in accordance with the terms of this policy in addition to any other terms and conditions which may apply. If you do not wish to accept cookies from this website, please either disable cookies or refrain from using this website.
1. What are cookies?
Cookies are text files that web servers can store on your computer’s hard drive when you visit a website. The website transfers these text-only strings of information to the cookie file of the browser on your computer’s hard drive. This enables the website to recognise you when you revisit and remember certain information. This information can include which pages you have visited, what choices you have made from menus, and any specific information you have entered into forms as well as the time and date of your visit to the website.
There are two main types of cookies:
• Session cookies (transient cookies): these are temporary cookies that expire at the end of a browser session; that is, when you leave the site. Session cookies allow the website to recognise you as you navigate between pages during a single browser session and allow you to use the website most efficiently. For example, session cookies enable a website to remember that a user has placed items in an online shopping basket. These cookies also help maintain security.
• Persistent cookies (permanent cookies): in contrast to session cookies, persistent cookies are stored on your equipment between browsing sessions until expiry or deletion. Many are built with automatic deletion dates to help make sure that your equipment does not get overloaded. They therefore enable the website to "recognise" you on each return, to remember your preferences and to tailor services to you.
This website only uses session cookies
We currently use only session cookies on this website. These help us to maintain security and to facilitate this website to identify when you are navigating from page to page, and to provide basic functionality. This enables you to avoid having to re-enter your details each time you enter a new page. The session cookies we use for security are designed to be difficult to read, change, access or use except by us when you have an active session running. They do not contain personal information, and cannot be used to identify you.
Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies. If you wish to restrict or to block the cookies which we use, you can do this through your browser settings. The “Help” section on your browser should assist you with this. It may be possible to configure your browser settings to enable acceptance of specific cookies or to notify you each time a new cookie is about to be stored on your computer, enabling you to decide whether to accept or reject the cookie.
Alternatively, you may wish to visit www.aboutcookies.org which contains comprehensive information on how to do this on a wide range of browsers.
Please note that if you set your browser to disable cookies, you may not be able to access secure areas of this website, for example an online bank account which you hold. In addition, we cannot guarantee that this website and your experience of it are as we intended it should be, as you may experience reduced functionality, or be prevented from using the website at all.
