Privacy Policy
Your privacy is critically important to us. At AmericanIslamicOutreach.org we have a few fundamental principles:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information.
  • We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our site, or protect our rights.
  • We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.

Below is our privacy policy which incorporates these goals.
If you have questions about accessing or correcting your personal data please contact our support team: privacy@AmericanIslamicOutreach.org.

It is AmericanIslamicOutreach.org’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors
Like most website operators, AmericanIslamicOutreach.org collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. AmericanIslamicOutreach.org’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how AmericanIslamicOutreach.org’s visitors use its website.  From time to time, AmericanIslamicOutreach.org may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

E-mail Alerts and Newsletters
We may offer you opportunities to subscribe to email alerts and newsletters concerning topics we believe might interest you. If you have opted to receive a particular alert or newsletter, you can always unsubscribe later. See “Opting Out” below.

Comments and other User-Generated Content
If you participate in chat, post a comment on a news story, a blog, or in one of our other forums or guest books, your comments will be public because those comments will be published to the Web. If you sign your comments or include any personal information in them, that information will become public. Protect your own privacy by not posting personal information, such as your phone number, in a comment.  Of course, any photo, video or other visual or audio-recorded matter you upload, post, or otherwise submit to any of our sites that accept such submissions will also become public when posted to the Web.  We do not edit user-generated content, nor do we remove user-posted material unless we, in our sole discretion, deem it unsuitable for continued publication.

WE DO NOT SELL THE NAMES, EMAIL ADDRESSES, OR OTHER PERSONAL INFORMATION YOU ENTER ON OUR SITES TO ANY THIRD PARTIES.

Opting Out

If you subscribe to alerts or newsletters, you will have the opportunity to review, update or delete the information you provided us at any time (except information we did not store in the first place), and to unsubscribe to any alerts or newsletters you have asked for (for example, by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link in an email). If you remove registration information you have provided, you probably will not be able to continue to use the service requiring that registration. If you wish to opt out of receiving notices, information or other contacts, or any other communication or service, please contact us using the information at the location where you previously registered or subscribed.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to AmericanIslamicOutreach.org’s websites choose to interact with AmericanIslamicOutreach.org in ways that require AmericanIslamicOutreach.org to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that AmericanIslamicOutreach.org gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, if a visitor has an email question, they are not required to provide any personally identifying information, and the extent of such information provided lies in the full discretion of the visitor.  In each case, AmericanIslamicOutreach.org collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with AmericanIslamicOutreach.org. AmericanIslamicOutreach.org does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.  And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics
AmericanIslamicOutreach.org may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, AmericanIslamicOutreach.org may monitor the most popular posts on the AmericanIslamicOutreach.org site or use spam screened by our filters to help identify spam. AmericanIslamicOutreach.org may display this information publicly or provide it to others.  AmericanIslamicOutreach.org, however, does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described herein.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

AmericanIslamicOutreach.org discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when AmericanIslamicOutreach.org believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of AmericanIslamicOutreach.org, third parties or the public at large. If you have supplied your email address, AmericanIslamicOutreach.org may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with AmericanIslamicOutreach.org and our site.  We primarily use our site to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users.  AmericanIslamicOutreach.org takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
