YOUR INFORMATION

THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT

Sakinah Institute does not automatically collect your personally identifiable information when your visit our website. We do recognize the internet service provider of visitors, as well as the domain name or IP address of the server from where you are visiting. This information is used to determine the number of visitors to our site and sources of traffic. The data we collect are totals of those visiting from a domain, not information on individual users.

We cannot recognize the personally identifiable data—such as names, postal addresses, or other information—about our visitors that would allow us to identify the particular visitors to our website.

You do not have to provide any personal information on our website unless you choose to do so. Sakinah Institute only gathers personal information—such as your name, postal address, or other information—only when you voluntarily submit it in an online form. If you make a donation online, personal information will be collected from you in order to process that donation.

HOW WE USE INFORMATION

Sakinah Institute is the sole owner of any information collected on this site. Sakinah Institute does not sell personal information about its website users or its offline donors.

Sakinah Institute states unambiguously that (a) it will not sell, trade and share a donor’s personal information with anyone else, nor send donor mailings on behalf of other organizations or (b) it will only share personal information once the donor has given the charity specific permission to do so.

The personal information you provide us when using our website or by other means—such as your name, postal address, or other information—will be kept strictly confidential and used to support your customer relationship with Sakinah Institute, as well as to notify you of updated information.

We will use personal information that you submit in an online or offline form to place you on our mailing list for regular updates. If you do not wish to receive such mailings from Sakinah Institute, you will have the opportunity at any time to request removal from future mailings by contacting us. Also, we will use your e-mail address that you submit in an online form to place you on our e-mail list. If you do not wish to receive e-mails form Sakinah Institute, you will have the opportunity at any time to request removal from future e-mail by unsubscribing from the e-mail list.

Sakinah Institute strongly adheres to anti-spam practices in its e-mail outreach. All e-mails sent on our list have easy-to-follow unsubscribe instructions at the bottom of each e-mail, and lists are never shared with any third parties.

PERSONAL INFORMATION AND CREDIT CARD SECURITY

Sakinah Institute cares about the safety and security of your transaction, and we take every precaution to protect your information.

Donations made on our website are secure to the fullest extent possible. Companies we work with to process credit card transactions also use high grade encryption and security protocols.

You can recognize secure website pages by checking for the secure symbol at the bottom of your browser screen. For most browsers, this symbol is either a lock or a key. When the lock symbol appears to be locked, the page is secure. When it appears to be unlocked, the page is insecure.

If you would like to request access to review, update or change the information you have supplied in any way, feel free to contact Sakinah Institute at any time. You can correct factual errors in your personally identifiable information by sending us a request that shows the error. We use this procedure to better safeguard your information. To protect your privacy and security, we will also take steps to verify your identity before providing information or making corrections.

OPT-OUT

Sakinah Institute gives you the opportunity to opt-out of receiving additional information from us at any time. If you do not wish to receive mailings and/or e-mails from Sakinah Institute, you can request removal by sending an email to admin@sakinahinstitute.org with “unsubscribe from mailing list” in the subject line, or by unsubscribing directly from an e-mail you receive from us (you can find the “unsubscribe from this list” option in the footer of the email).
