The Company reserves the right, at its discretion, to add additional terms to the Terms concerning certain users, or to replace them with other terms.

Registration of donees to the System and the duration of their registration are at the sole discretion of the Company. The Company does not undertake to approve registration of any donee who wishes to register to the System. The Company does not commit to donees who have been approved for registration to be registered for a certain period of time and it is entitled, at its discretion, to suspend the registration (immediately or with up to three days prior notice) or cancel (immediately or with up to seven days prior notice) donees registration.

Also, when a user of the system uses it in 'public' mode, other users of the organization (from the same department or from the entire organization - depending on the configuration of permissions set by the Admin User) can view and communicate with that user. Therefore, it is recommended that users who are organizations reflect the aforementioned to their users and determine, at their discretion, procedures for the conduct of their users of their behalf.
3.6 To remove any doubt, it is clarified that the registration process and the configuration of the use of the System through user accounts, are intended to optimize its use, but this does not mean that the Company assumes responsibility for its users, for their reliability and the fulfillment of their obligations according to the Terms. The Company will not be responsible for users of the System, in any circumstances including for cases of violation of the Terms, lack of transparency, fraud, or fraud on their part. The Company takes and will take reasonable measures at its discretion in order to reduce risks as mentioned and enable a meeting place for donors and donees with a reasonable level of reliability, but this does not and will not make the Company responsible for its users as mentioned. Moreover, the relationship between organizations and their users (and between their users and themselves) is in the sole responsibility of the organization. The Company does not and will not have any responsibility in connection with the aforementioned relationship. Each organization undertakes towards the Company to defend it, on its own responsibility and at its own expense, any demand or claim on behalf of any user on its behalf that comes against the Company and to indemnify the Company for any expense or cost it incurs.
