Privacy Notice & Cookies Policy

At studentsofquran.com, the privacy of our visitors and subscribers is of extreme importance to us. This privacy policy document outlines the types of personal information that are received and collected by studentsofquran.com and how it is used.

Visitors to our Website

When someone visits studentsofquran.com we use a third party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone. We do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website. You can find more information on how cookies are used on this website in the Cookies Policy below.

If we do want to collect personally identifiable information through our website, we will be up front about this. We will make it clear when we collect personal information and will explain what we intend to do with it.

Newsletter Sign Up

As part of the registration process for our bi-weekly e-newsletter, we collect your name and email. We use that information for a couple of reasons: to tell you about stuff you’ve asked us to tell you about; to contact you if we need to obtain or provide additional information; to check our records are right and to check every now and then that you’re happy and satisfied. We don’t rent or trade email lists with other organisations and businesses.

We use a third party provider, MailChimp, to deliver our newsletter. We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our e-newsletter. For more information, please see MailChimp’s privacy notice.

You can unsubscribe to general mailings at any time of the day or night by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of our emails or direct your email to jamila@studentsofquran.com

Comments

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.

An anonymised string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Contact Forms

We keep our contact forms submissions for a certain period for customer service purposes, but we do not use the information submitted through them for marketing purposes.

Who We Share Your Data With

Your email may be used in order that we can share files such as handouts and planners that you may have signed up for through our cloud-based services with Googledrive and Dropbox.  You can check their privacy policy here GoogleDrive Privacy Policy. Dropbox Privacy Policy.
