All Rights:FAQ

From All Rights (Kol-Zchut) (www.kolzchut.org.il)

What is Kol-Zchut (All Rights)?

The Web site is a non-profit, collaborative initiative that unites experts in the field of rights who are active in dozens of organizations, associations, public bodies and academic institutions. The Web site is operated by a company for the benefit of the general public. It is a non-profit organization that is funded by social funds and private contributions.

How do I know that the information on the site is up-to-date?

The content experts who belong to the knowledge communities make an effort to update the Web site whenever there is additional information or a change that affects the rights that appear on the site. However, sometimes the updates are delayed. Therefore, in cases where you are uncertain about the relevance of the information, we recommend performing the following two checks:

  • The date of the last update appears to the right of the article’s headline. This will let you know when the article was last updated.
  • A link to the government agency responsible for implementation of the rights appears in many of the articles on the site.

We are unable to guarantee that the information is up-to-date at any point in time.

There are many rights which don’t appear on your Web site. Why not?

The All Rights system is a new initiative, and the content topics are added to the Web site at the rate we recruit knowledge communities in the various fields. Although dozens of articles are added to the Web site each week, we are still far from covering each rights topic. If you are an expert in a specific field and are interested in joining our knowledge communities, please contact the knowledge community manager, Eden Fuchs.

How do I know if a link leads to an English page or a Hebrew page?

Although all of these portals are in English, not every individual entry is yet translated. To date there are only a few hundred pages that were translated. Any link appearing on the website with a small [ע] next to it means that the content is currently only available in Hebrew. Links without an [ע] lead to pages in English.

I found a mistake, how can I get it fixed?

If you found a mistake, or if you have additional information that may be relevant to a particular article, please advise us by clicking the “Change Proposal” button that appears at the top of each page.

Why should I register on the site?

After you register on the site you will be able to create lists to follow topics that are of interest to you, and to receive updates when new information has been added or is changed in the relevant areas. In addition, you can browse the site as you like, using the “My preferences” menu.

On the Wikipedia website, anyone can edit and add content to the site. I registered on the All Rights site and I still can’t edit. Why not?

Just as with Wikipedia, All Rights is a cooperative system. However, in contrast to Wikipedia, the authorization to edit the All Rights content is given only to experts in the specific field, in an effort to preserve the quality of the information and to prevent mistakes or inaccuracies. If you would like to join one of the All Rights knowledge communities and receive authorization to edit content, please contact our knowledge community manager, Eden Fuchs. If you would like to make a comment, add specific content, or alert us regarding an error, please update us using the “Change Proposal” button, which appears at the top and bottom of each page.

I don’t see any advertising on the Web site. Who funds you?

All Rights is a non-profit initiative that is funded with money contributed by organizations and private donors. Its content is contributed by our knowledge communities, which are made up of organizations, government institutions, academics and professionals in various fields.
