Al-Maqdisi Guide Website & App Privacy Policy

 

Your privacy is critically important to us. At Maqdisi Guide Website & Apps (“Maqdisi Guide”, “we”, “us”, “our”), we have a few fundamental principles:

We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop or operate our products or services, or protect our rights.
We don’t store personal information on our servers or the offsite servers of the third-party service providers we use to provide our core services unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.
In our social networking and mobile application products, we aim to make it as simple as possible for you to control what is visible to the public, seen by search engines, kept private, and permanently deleted.
Below is our privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) which incorporates these goals:
Al-Maqdisi Guide operates a mobile application (the “Application”). It is Al-Maqdisi Guide’s policy to respect the privacy of the Application’s users (“you”, “your”) regarding any information collected through the Application.

Non-Personally-Identifying Information

Al-Maqdisi Guide collects, or may have a third-party service providers collect, non-personally-identifying information of the sort that mobile applications typically make available, such as the type of device using the Application, the operating system, location information, and aggregated user statistics. For instance, Al-Maqdisi Guide may monitor the most popular features of the Application. Al-Maqdisi Guide’s purpose in collecting non-personally-identifying information is to better understand how users utilize the Application. From time to time, Al-Maqdisi Guide may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing or disclosing to third parties a report on trends in the usage of the Application or of mobile applications including the Application.

Personally-Identifying Information

Certain users of the Application choose to interact with Al-Maqdisi Guide 2019 in ways that require Al-Maqdisi Guide to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Al-Maqdisi Guide gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask users who log in to a social network through the Application to provide a username and an email address. Those who engage in transactions with Al-Maqdisi Guide are asked to provide additional personally-identifying information, including, as necessary, their first and last name, physical address, telephone number, and additional data such as financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Maqdisi Guide collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the user interaction with Maqdisi Guide. Maqdisi Guide does not share personally-identifying information other than as described below. Users can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain Application-related activities.

Sharing of Personally-Identifying Information

Maqdisi Guide shares personally-identifying information only with those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Maqdisi Guide’s behalf or to provide services available through the Application, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. For instance, Maqdisi Guide uses third-party vendors and hosting partners to provide the necessary hardware, software, networking, data storage, and related technology required to run the services available through the Application. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country. Maqdisi Guide will not rent or sell personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Maqdisi Guide discloses personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Maqdisi Guide believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Maqdisi Guide, third parties or the public at large.

Use of Email Addresses and Push Notifications

If you have supplied your email address as part of your use of the Application, Maqdisi Guide may, subject to the applicable law, occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what is going on with Maqdisi Guide and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum.

With your consent, Maqdisi Guide may also send push notifications or alerts to the device you use to access the Application. Such notifications can reach you even when you are not logged in to the Application or the Application is not running on your device. Maqdisi Guide uses push notifications to send you messages related to the services provided through the Application or to make available to you general information regarding Maqdisi Guide and its products. You can deactivate push notifications in the settings of the Application or of your device at any time.

Protection of Information

Maqdisi Guide takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect your personally identifiable information against unauthorized access, use, alteration, loss, or destruction.

Do-Not-Track Disclosures

Neither Maqdisi Guide nor any third party engages in the collection of personally-identifiable information about your online activities over time and across third-party websites or online services when you are accessing or using the Application. For this reason, the Application does not respond to “Do Not Track” signals or other mechanisms providing you the ability to exercise choice regarding the collection of such information.

Age Limitation

The Application is not directed and should not be available to children under 13 years of age. We do not knowingly collect any kind of personal information from children under 13 years of age. If you are under the age of 13, do not use the Application or otherwise provide us with personal information. If we become aware that such information has been collected, we will immediately delete such information. If any parent or guardian learns or otherwise becomes aware of a child under 13 years of age using the Application or otherwise providing personal information to us, please contact us.

Although most changes are likely to be minor, Maqdisi Guide may change this Privacy Policy from time to time, and in Maqdisi Guide’s sole discretion. Changes to the Privacy Policy will be effective as of the date we post the revised version on this page or make it otherwise accessible through the Application as a notification and will apply only to our collection, use and sharing of information after such date. Maqdisi Guide encourages users to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. If you have a Maqdisi Guide account, you should also check your social network dashboard for alerts to these changes.

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a web server stores on a user’s computer or other device, and that the user’s device provides back to the web server each time the user returns. Maqdisi Guide uses cookies as part of the Application to remember your user preferences and make available to you the services provided through the Application.

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year. If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser. When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website. These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue. For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service. We collect information about you during the checkout process on our store.

What we collect and store

While you visit our site, we’ll track:

  • Products you’ve viewed: we’ll use this to, for example, show you products you’ve recently viewed
  • Location, IP address and browser type: we’ll use this for purposes like estimating taxes and shipping
  • Shipping address: we’ll ask you to enter this so we can, for instance, estimate shipping before you place an order, and send you the order!

We’ll also use cookies to keep track of cart contents while you’re browsing our site. When you purchase from us, we’ll ask you to provide information including your name, billing address, shipping address, email address, phone number, credit card/payment details and optional account information like username and password.

  • Improve our store offerings
  • Send you marketing messages, if you choose to receive them

If you create an account, we will store your name, address, email and phone number, which will be used to populate the checkout for future orders. We generally store information about you for as long as we need the information for the purposes for which we collect and use it, and we are not legally required to continue to keep it. For example, we will store order information for XXX years for tax and accounting purposes. This includes your name, email address and billing and shipping addresses. We will also store comments or reviews, if you choose to leave them.
