Introduction

This privacy statement discloses the privacy practices for AbDuLmAtEeNkHaN's Islamic Web Directroy.
 
 Information Collection and Use
AbDuLmAtEeNkHaN's Islamic Web Directory is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. I will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. AbDuLmAtEeNkHaN's Islamic Web Directory collects information from my users at several different points on my Website. No individual information about any visitor will be released to any third party without that visitors permission. The information collected will be used in the aggregate only and is for the sole internal use of AbDuLmAtEeNkHaN's Islamic Web Directory.
 
Registration
In order to use some features of my Website, a user must first complete the registration form. During registration a user is required to give their contact information (such as name and email address). This information is used to contact the user about the services on my site for which they have expressed interest. It is optional for the user to provide demographic information (such as income level and gender).
 

Order

I request information from the user on my order form. Here a user must provide contact information (like name and shipping address) and financial information (like credit card number, expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes and to fill customerís orders. If I have trouble processing an order, this contact information is used to get in touch with the user. A customers credit card information will be sent to the credit card company in a secure format for processing and no record of a customers credit card number will be kept by AbDuLmAtEeNkHaN's Islamic Web Directory.
 

Cookies

A cookie is a piece of data stored on the userís hard drive containing information about the user. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on my site. Once the user closes their browser, the cookie simply terminates. If a user rejects the cookie, they may still use my site. The only drawback to this is that the user will be limited in some areas of my site. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of my users to enhance the experience on my site.

Some of my business partners use cookies on my site (for example, advertisers). HoIver, I have no access to or control over these cookies.
 

Log Files

I use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track userís movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.

 

Sharing

I will share aggregated demographic information with my partners and advertisers. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person.

I use an outside shipping company to ship orders, and a credit card processing company to bill users for goods and services. These companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.

I may partner with another party to provide specific services. When the user signs up for these services, I will share names, or other contact information that is necessary for the third party to provide these services. These parties are not alloId to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services.
 

Links

This Web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that I AbDuLmAtEeNkHaN's Islamic Web Directory are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. I encourage my users to be aware when they leave my site and to read the privacy statements of each and every Web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Web site.

 

Surveys & Contests

From time-to-time my site requests information from users via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code, age level). Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site.

  

Referrals

If a user elects to use my referral service for informing a friend about my site, I ask them for the friendís name and email address. AbDuLmAtEeNkHaN's Islamic Web Directory will automatically send the friend a one-time email inviting them to visit the site. AbDuLmAtEeNkHaN's Islamic Web Directory stores this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email. The friend may contact AbDuLmAtEeNkHaN's Islamic Web Directory at <mgmt@abdulmateen.com> to request the removal of this information from my database.
 

Security

This Website takes every precaution to protect my usersí information. When users submit sensitive information via the Website, there information is protected both online and off-line.

When my registration/order form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number and/or social security number), that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software currently available. While on a secure page, such as my order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when you are just Ďsurfingí.

All of my usersí information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in my offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, my billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. My employees must use password-protected screen-savers when they leave their desk. When they return, they must re-enter their password to re-gain access to their information. Furthermore, ALL employees are kept up-to-date on my security and privacy practices. Every quarter, as Ill as any time new policies are added, my employees are notified and/or reminded about the importance I place on privacy, and what they can do to ensure my customersí information is protected. Finally, the servers that I store personally identifiable information on are kept in a secure environment, behind a locked cage.

If you have any questions about the security at my Website, you can send an email to <mgmt@abdulmateen.com>.

 

Supplementation of Information

In order for this Website to properly fulfill its obligation to my customers, it is necessary for us to supplement the information I receive with information from 3rd party sources.

For example, to determine if my customers qualify for one of my credit cards, I use their name and social security number to request a credit report. Once I determine a userís credit-worthiness, this document is destroyed.
 

Special Offers

I send all new members a Incoming email to verify password and username. Established members will occasionally receive information on products, services, special deals, and a newsletter. Out of respect for the privacy of my users I present the option to not receive these types of communications. Please see my choice and unsubscribe option below.
 

Correction/Updating Personal Information:

If a userís personally identifiable information changes (such as ymy zip code), or if a user no longer desires my service, I will endeavor to provide a way to correct, update or remove that userís personal data provided to us. This can usually be done at the member information page or by emailing my Customer Support at <mgmt@abdulmateen.com>.
 

Subscribe/Unsubscribe

My users are given the opportunity to unsubscribe at any time from receiving any e-mail for us.

Users who no longer wish to receive my newsletter or promotional materials from my partners may opt-out of receiving these communications by replying to unsubscribe Web in the subject line in the email or email us at mgmt@abdulmateen.com

Users of my site are always notified when their information is being collected by any outside parties. I do this so my users can make an informed choice as to whether they should proceed with services that require an outside party, or not.

 

Notification of Changes

If I decide to change my privacy policy, I will post those changes on my Homepage so my users are always aware of what information I collect, how I use it, and under circumstances, if any, I disclose it. If at any point I decide to use personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, I will notify users by way of an email. Users will have a choice as to whether or not I use their information in this different manner. I will use information in accordance with the privacy policy under which the information was collected.
