At KS we are committed to protecting your privacy. This statement describes how KS collects and uses personal information about people who visit our websites. The terms of this statement may change, so please check it from time to time.
If you have any queries about this privacy statement please contact the Legal Team, Khaleefah Society Ltd, by email firstname.lastname@example.org.
How do we collect information?
We obtain personal information from you when you enquire about our activities, register with us, send or receive an e-postcard, make a donation to us, ask a question about our projects or otherwise provide us with personal information. We may also receive information about you from third parties, for example from our service providers or from a friend who wants to tell you about our websites or the fundraising activities we carry out.
What information do we collect?
The personal information we collect might include name, date of birth, email address, postal address, telephone number and credit/debit card details. We may also gather general information about the use of our websites, such as which pages users visit most often and which services, events or facilities are of most interest. We may also track which pages users visit when they click on links in KS emails. We may use this information to personalise the way our websites are presented when users visit them, to make improvements to our websites and to ensure we provide the best service for users. Wherever possible we use aggregated or anonymous information which does not identify individual visitors to our websites.
How do we use this information?
We will use your personal information:
- provide you with the services, products or information you have requested;
- to create an account for you if you register with us;
- for administration purposes;
- to further our charitable aims, including for fundraising activities.
As part of this, we may analyse the personal information we collect to create a profile of your interests and preferences so that we can contact you in the most appropriate way and with the most relevant information. Where relevant, we may also assess your personal information for the purposes of fraud and credit risk reduction.
If you enter your contact details in one of our online registration forms, we may use this information to contact you even if you don’t “send” or “submit” the form. We will only do this to see if we can help with any problems you might be experiencing with the form or with our websites.
We may need to share your information with our service providers, associated organisations and agents for the purposes described above.
You have a choice about whether you want to receive information about our progress and fundraising activities. We will not use your personal information for marketing purposes if you have indicated that you do not wish to be contacted. You can change your marketing preferences at any time by contacting us by email email@example.com.
KS is concerned to protect the privacy of children aged under 16. Some of our websites have specific rules about how children under 16 can take part in our events. Where appropriate we will seek consent from a parent or guardian before collecting personal information about a child aged under 16.
Do we use 'cookies' ?
'Cookies' are small pieces of information sent by a web server to a web browser which enable the server to collect information from the browser. Essentially it takes the form of a small text file deposited on your computer's hard drive. Our websites use both persistent and session cookies. Persistent cookies are cookies that stay on your computer permanently until you “manually” delete them. Session cookies delete themselves automatically when you leave a website and go to another one or shut down your browser.
You can do this by clicking on the "Help" menu. You can also delete these cookies. Please note however that if you disable or delete our cookies your use of our websites may be restricted and you may not be able to access all the services or facilities on our sites.
How do we protect personal information?
All of our online forms are protected by encryption. We also use a secure server when you make a donation or payment via our websites. We take appropriate measures to ensure that the personal information disclosed to us is kept secure, accurate and up to date and kept only for so long as is necessary for the purposes for which it is used.
Will we disclose the information we collect to outside parties?
As indicated above, we may pass your information to our service providers, agents and associated organisations for the purpose of completing tasks and providing services to you. Where we use service providers we will make sure there are appropriate controls in place.
We may also need to disclose your information if required by law (for example to government bodies and law enforcement agencies) or if we have your permission to do so.
We will not sell any information about your web browsing activity.
