Privacy Policy

This website is owned and operated by Baitulmaal AHED, Inc. This Privacy Policy governs all pages hosted at www.baitulmaal.org. Baitulmaal AHED is dedicated to honoring the privacy and wishes of all visitors. Following are details about our privacy policies, including what type of information is gathered and tracked, how the information is used, and with whom the information is shared.  This Privacy Policy may change from time to time, so please check back periodically. This statement was last updated on April 28, 2015.

Baitulmaal AHED respects the privacy of its donors, both online and offline (using checks, pledge cards, or by phone). We have developed a rigorous privacy policy that reflects that respect. Please read the following policy to understand how your personal information will be treated. In addition to the terms of this Policy, we will use reasonable efforts to honor any other limitations you may wish to place on the usage of your personal information.

The safety of our beneficiaries, especially orphans is very important to us. We do not intend to collect personally identifiable information on our beneficiaries.

Our Privacy Policy is organized in the following sections:

  • how we collect information
  • information we collect
  • Use of information
  • Sharing of information
  • Personally identifiable information
  • Use of cookies
  • Privacy policy changes
  • Contact information

How we collect information

Baitulmaal AHED may collect information regarding visitors/donors to the site, including IP address, browser and domain information, and information volunteered by you, such as e-mail address, contact information and, for donations and purchases, credit card information. We may also monitor and track information, such as visitor usage patterns using standard website tracking software.  When you are on our site and are asked for personal information, you are sharing that information with Baitulmaal AHED. Baitulmaal AHED only shares your personal information with its financial service providers in order to complete your donation.  Baitulmaal AHED does not share or sell donor’s personal information with anyone else, nor send donor mailings on behalf of other organizations.  Baitulmaal AHED will only share personal information, if the donor has given permission to do so.

Information we collect

Baitulmaal AHED collects personally identifiable information (which may include name, email address, physical address, and phone number) from visitors, donors, and subscribers to our e-newsletter, or those who take an action concerning an issue using our service. Please note that our web server does not automatically recognize or collect personal information based on your e-mail address; the personal information we collect is always voluntarily submitted by you.

Use of information

Baitulmaal AHED uses the personally identifiable information we collect about you to be able to send you communications such as our e-newsletter and various printed publications or mail appeals in furtherance of our fundraising, educational, and advocacy objectives.

Sharing of information

Except as set forth in this Policy, Baitulmaal AHED will not disclose any of your personally identifiable information to third parties, except when we have your permission. Because Baitulmaal AHED is mainly funded through private donations, we may exchange your personal information with our third party financial service providers.

Please note: We are aware of and sensitive to the issue of unsolicited e-mail (“spam”); therefore Baitulmaal AHED will never rent, trade or sell your e-mail address to a third party for directed marketing of commercial products (we do not consider list sharing for charitable fundraising purposes to be commercial use). We may, from time to time, allow our service providers to draw conclusions regarding user behaviors from demographic and aggregated information.

**Baitulmaal AHED only shares your personal information with its financial service providers in order to complete your donation.  Baitulmaal AHED does not share or sell donor’s personal information with anyone else, nor send donor mailings on behalf of other organizations.  Baitulmaal AHED will only share personal information, if the donor has given permission to do so.

Protecting personally identifiable information

When you give Baitulmaal AHED personally identifiable information, we take steps to treat your information securely. Baitulmaal AHED uses industry-standard encryption technologies when transferring and receiving sensitive visitor data (e.g., financial information) within the site.  All online donations are processed via third parties using secure servers. Baitulmaal AHED does not store your credit card information for future use. We strive to protect your personally identifiable information.

Use of cookies

Cookies are small text-only files that are stored on your computer and that can be used to help identify you when you visit our site.  A cookie cannot read data off of your computer hard disk, nor can it read cookie files created by other websites. We may use cookies to make visiting and using our site easier, for instance, so that you do not have to continually re-enter information, and so that we can tailor the site to your expressed preferences.

Most web browsers accept cookies. However, if you wish, you can usually set your browser to refuse cookies, or to notify you when you receive a new cookie.

If you are located outside of the United States, you should be aware that we will collect, process, and maintain your information in the United States.  By using our donation page, accessing the site or providing any information to the page, you consent to the transfer of your information to the United States.

Privacy Policy changes

If we decide to change this Privacy Policy, we will post the revised Privacy Policy here so that you will always know what information we gather, how we might use that information and whether we may disclose it to anyone. Your continued use of Baitulmaal AHED site indicates your consent to the Privacy Policy as posted.
