The WNYMuslims Website is a general audience site and does not knowingly collect PII from children under 13 years of age.
COLLECTION AND SUBMISSION OF PII AND NON-PII ON WNYMUSLIMS
General. When WNYMuslims collects PII from you it is because you are voluntarily submitting Registration PII to us in order to register as a Member of WNYMuslims. WNYMuslims may also collect PII from you if you choose to participate in WNYMuslims Services activities like sweepstakes, contests, and surveys, because you want us to furnish you with products, services, newsletters, or information, or in connection with content or suggestions you submit to WNYMuslims for review.
In addition, WNYMuslims collects other non-PII including IP address, aggregate user data, and browser type. This data is used to manage and improve the WNYMuslims Services, track usage, and for security purposes. WNYMuslims Members may also choose to provide or store non-PII information in their posts, including but not limited to date of birth, interests, hobbies, lifestyle choices, groups with whom they are affiliated (schools, companies), videos and/or pictures, private messages, bulletins or personal statements (collectively “Profile Information”). The Profile Information in a Member’s post is provided at his or her sole discretion.
WNYMuslims Members can change their Registration PII and Profile Information at any time by updating their information or contacting us.
You can program your computer to warn you each time a cookie is being sent, block third party cookies or block all cookies. However, by blocking all cookies you may not have access to certain features on the WNYMuslims Services.
NOTICE: WNYMUSLIMS WILL PROVIDE YOU WITH NOTICE ABOUT ITS PII COLLECTION PRACTICES
Third party applications (such as widgets) created by third party developers may also be available on the WNYMuslims Services. Third party applications are small bits of software, often with interactivity, that can be installed into Members’ posts or shared with other Users. However, WNYMuslims does not control the third party developers, and cannot dictate their actions. When a Member engages with a third party application, that Member is interacting with the third party developer, not with WNYMuslims. WNYMuslims encourages Members not to provide PII to the third party’s application unless the Member knows the party with whom it is interacting.
CHOICE: WNYMUSLIMS WILL PROVIDE YOU WITH CHOICES ABOUT THE USE OF YOUR PII
USE: WNYMUSLIMS'S USE OF PII
If you have consented to receive promotional materials (e.g., newsletters) or notifications from WNYMuslims, WNYMuslims may periodically use your email address to send you such materials related to the WNYMuslims Services, as applicable. If you want to stop receiving such materials from WNYMuslims, you can change your profile settings under “Account Settings,” or follow the unsubscribe instructions at the bottom of each email.
WNYMuslims employees, agents and contractors must have a business reason to obtain access to your PII. WNYMuslims may share your PII with those who help us manage or provide WNYMuslims Services’ information activities (for example, message board administration, order fulfillment, statistical analyses, data processing), or with outside contractors, agents or sponsors who help us with the administration, judging and prize fulfillment aspects of contests, promotions and sweepstakes.
These outside contractors, agents or sponsors may temporarily store some information on their servers, but they may only use your PII to provide WNYMuslims with a specific service and not for any other purpose. WNYMuslims may also provide your PII to a third party in those instances where you have chosen to receive certain information and have been notified that the fulfillment of such a request requires the sharing of your PII. WNYMuslims also may share your PII with Affiliated Companies if it has a business reason to do so.
There may be instances when WNYMuslims may access or disclose PII, Profile Information or non-PII without providing you a choice in order to: (i) protect or defend the legal rights or property of WNYMuslims, our Affiliated Companies or their employees, agents and contractors (including enforcement of our agreements); (ii) protect the safety and security of Users of the WNYMuslims Services or members of the public including acting in urgent circumstances; (iii) protect against fraud or for risk management purposes; or (iv) comply with the law or legal process. In addition, if WNYMuslims sells all or part of its business or makes a sale or transfer of all or a material part of its assets or is otherwise involved in a merger or transfer of all or a material part of its business, WNYMuslims may transfer your PII to the party or parties involved in the transaction as part of that transaction.
SECURITY: WNYMUSLIMS PROTECTS THE SECURITY OF PII
WNYMuslims uses commercially reasonable administrative, technical, personnel and physical measures to safeguard PII in its possession against loss, theft and unauthorized use, disclosure or modification.
