We are committed to our users’ rights to privacy. We promise to share transparently all aspects of how the As Salam Institute product and website work in regards to privacy, terms, and personal data, and we are in full support of efforts to ensure your protection online.
The following is a collection of information and resources to help answer any questions you have about your experience with As SalamInstitute. We’re grateful for your interest and proud to have you as a part of our community!
The EU’s General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) take effect May 25th, and we are fully behind the spirit of these regulations for a safe and secure Internet. We aspire to embrace privacy by design and, whenever possible, to not collect and store personally-identifiable information.
Overall, we aim for privacy by default: if data collection is not integral to the way our product works, then we won’t collect it. This approach has felt very much in line with the spirit of GDPR, and we’re fortunate that a lot of these data collection practices have been in place at As Salam Institute for some time. As such, you may see few banners or forms requesting consent for us to collect personally-identifiable information for tracking or other purposes. We don’t deem this information necessary to provide As Salam Institute’s service to you, and we choose not to engage in activities and strategies that make this data relevant.
At any time, you may request your information to be exported and sent to you for review, and we promptly honour any requests by you to have your information deleted and forgotten.
Here is our progress so far on GDPR compliance ahead of the May 25th, 2018, deadline:
We are auditing all areas of As Salam Institute to determine what personal data we collect and for what purpose. In a case where collecting personal data is not essential, we are removing that collection process.
We will add a cookie notice to all marketing pages and blogs in order to comply with the E-Privacy Directive. We do not collect personally-identifiable information with our cookies, but we do want to acknowledge the use of cookie technology on our website.
A user has the right to request that we delete all of their personal data. Users who wish to inquire about the right to be forgotten will be able to reach out to us at any time.
Access / Portability
A user can request access to a copy of the personal data that we have collected. Users who wish to request portability can reach out to us at any time.
In As Salam Institute, if a user asks to change their information, we can do so within our admin portal. If a user has a modification to make, they can reach out to us firstname.lastname@example.org
