Privacy Policy

 

Our Commitment to Privacy

Muslim Awards’ (Muslimawards.org) Privacy Policy was developed as an extension of our commitment to combine quality products and services with integrity in dealing with our users. The Policy is designed to assist you in understanding how we collect, use and safeguard the personal information you provide to us and to assist you in making informed decisions when using our site and our products and services.

What Information Do We Collect?

When you visit our site you may provide us with two types of information: personal information you actively choose to disclose (“Active Information”) and use information collected, in a way not visible to you, on an aggregate anonymous basis as you and others browse our site (“Passive Information”).

Active Information You Choose to Provide

If you choose to post information on our site or maintain email, snailmail or telephone contact with us, we may retain such information also and its transmission via email is not secured.

Passive Information Collected

What is a Cookie?

Cookies are a feature of web browser (Internet Explorer, Netscape Navigator, etc.) software that allows web servers to recognize the computer used to access a site. They are small pieces of data that are stored by a user’s web browser on one site to simplify subsequent interactions with that site by the same user or to use the information to streamline the user’s transaction on related web pages. This makes it easier for a user to move from site to site and to complete transactions over the Internet. Cookies should make your online experience easier and more personalized.

Muslim Awards uses cookies

• To improve the quality of our service by tracking user trends and paths using standard Web analytics software.
• To store your preferences and other information on your computer in order to save you time by eliminating the need to repeatedly enter the same information and to display your personalized content on your current and later visits to Muslim Awards.
•To make it easy for visitors to bookmark and share content to their favorite social destinations.

Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies, but you can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, some Muslim Awards features and services may not function properly if your cookies are disabled.

Web analytics

When you visit Muslim Awards, we record some standard information about your visit. This information helps us to measure the popularity of our documents and to understand how traffic flows through our site as well as to assist us in planning new content materials. We do not create individual profiles of visitors but only collect aggregate data.

These server logs include information such as your web request, IP address, browser type, browser language, the date and time of your request, referring webpage, plug-ins installed, screen size, search terms and one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your browser.

The log files are analysed by standard Web analytics programs. In this process the information is non-personalized. We do not track individual visits unless you specifically ask us to do so (i.e. for solving certain problems) or if our security is violated.

The log files are retained for as long as is necessary to perform the analysis described above.
