This statement describes the information gathering and dissemination practices of Amaanah Refugee Services for our Web site www.amaanahservices.org (the “Site”), including the types of information we collect and how we may use that information. We only obtain personally identifying information (“personal information”) about you when you actively provide us the information.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it
When visitors leave comments on the site, we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

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 have an account and you log in to this site, 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.

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.
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.

Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
In general, you can visit our Site without telling us your name or revealing any personal information such as your address, telephone number or e-mail address.
In certain parts of the Site, we may ask you to provide your name or other personal information so that we can provide you with information that you request, respond to feedback that you submit to a Site, allow you to participate in activities on the Site, such as one of our contests, or otherwise interact with the Site. Further, we may ask you for demographic data, such as your preferred language or country of residence, in order to tailor your experience on the Site, display content customized to your preferences, and to otherwise administer the Site. You are under no obligation to provide us with this information, but without it, we may not be able to fulfill some types of requests. If you do not want your personal information collected, simply do not submit it to the Site.
We make significant efforts to ensure that the personal information you provide to us remains secure. We will not sell, rent, or otherwise disclose the personal information you provide to us through the Site to parties outside of Amaanah Refugee Services or our advertising, promotional and marketing agencies and consultants unless specified herein. We will disclose personal information if we are required to do so by law or have a good faith belief that such action is necessary to conform with existing laws or to cooperate with law enforcement agencies or in legal proceedings. In addition, if all or part of Amaanah Refugee Services is sold to, or merges with, another company, or declares bankruptcy, some or all of the information collected from you may be transferred to a third party as a result of the transfer of assets. Furthermore, we may use third party contractors to help us operate our business and the Site or administer activities on our behalf, such as contest administration and prize fulfillment, and may share your personal information with these contractors for those limited purposes.
We may share anonymous aggregated data with other companies that we do business with for market research purposes. For example, we may report to our advertising agency that a certain percentage of our Site’ users are United States residents between the ages of 21-25.
When you visit our Site, your Internet browser will automatically send us your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address and information such as the type of browser you use, the date and time you accessed our Site, and the IP address of the Web site from which you linked to our Site. We may use this information to give you access to the Site, to tailor your experience on our Site, to display content customized to your preferences, and to otherwise administer the Site. We may also share this information with third parties in aggregate non-identifiable form.
Like many companies, we may store information on your computer in the form of a “cookie.” A cookie may tell us whether you have visited our Site before and what pages on our Site you have viewed. The cookies we use do not collect any personal information about you, provide us with any way to contact you or extract any information from your computer. With most Internet browsers, you can erase cookies from your hard drive, block all cookies, or receive a warning before a cookie is stored on your computer.

We will use your personal information for customer service, to provide you with information that you may request and to customize your experience on the Site. We may also use your personal information to respond to your requests, tailor offerings to you, contact you about special events, offers and information we think would be of interest to you, and notify you if you won a prize in a contest.
