We will always get your consent before we share your personal data with any company outside of Islamicly for marketing purposes.

We may use both "session" cookies and "persistent" cookies on the website. The session cookies enable our website to keep track of you whilst you navigate the website. The persistent cookies will enable our website to recognise your computer when you visit our website.
Whilst session cookies will be deleted from your computer when you close your browser, persistent cookies will remain stored on your computer until deleted, or until they reach a specified expiry date.
Most browsers allow you to refuse to accept cookies. (For example, in Internet Explorer you can refuse all cookies by clicking "Tools", "Internet Options", "Privacy", and selecting "Block all cookies" using the sliding selector.) This will, however, have a negative impact upon the usability of many websites, including ours.
We use remarketing to advertise across websites, via cookies. Google, Facebook (and other similar third parties, if you use them) will show ads across websites that you are visiting. These ads shown across other websites are based on a user's past visits to our web site or app by using cookies. Should you wish to opt out of remarketing campaigns, you can do this by visiting Google and Facebook's Ads Settings page.
In addition, we use Google Analytics to analyse the use of this website. Google Analytics generates statistical and other information about website use by means of cookies. The information generated relating to our website is used to create reports about the use of the website.
We may have to share your personal data with the parties set out below for the purposes set out above.
We share your personal data with other companies in the Islamicly Group who provide IT, data, support and system administration services.
We share your personal data with carefully selected service providers who help us with the day-to-day running of our business (such as payment providers), as well as external third party processors who provide us with software tools to manage our customer support, marketing campaigns and business analytics.
We may also share your personal data with third parties to whom we may choose to sell, transfer, or merge parts of our business or our assets. Alternatively, we may seek to acquire other businesses or merge with them. If a change happens to our business, then the new owners may use your personal data in the same way as set out in this privacy notice.
We require all third parties to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law. We only permit our third-party service providers to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.
We share your personal data within the Islamicly Group, which will involve transferring your data outside the European Economic Area ( EEA). Many of our external third parties are also based outside the European Economic Area ( EEA) so their processing of your personal data will involve a transfer of data outside the EEA.
Whenever we transfer your personal data out of the EEA, we ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:
We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees or contracted third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.
All personal information you provide will be stored on our secure servers. Please note that if you contribute publicly to the community (such as commenting on discussion boards) your name will be publicly visible unless you choose to use a pseudonym which can be edited at any time.
If you choose to publish information about yourself in your public profile or in articles you choose to publish on the website (both optional), this information will, of course, be publicly available on the internet.
All personal data and payment information is sent over a secure protocol, but please note that data transmission over the internet is inherently insecure and cannot be guaranteed.
All passwords are stored in our database using one way encryption and cannot be read by employees. You are responsible for keeping your password and user details confidential. We will only ask you for your password when you log in.
We will only be able to retrieve your passwords upon your explicit consent.
We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.
We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.
To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.
In some circumstances you can ask us to delete your data: see Your Legal Rights below for further information.
In some circumstances we may anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for record-keeping, research or statistical purposes in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.
If you are habitually located in the European Union, you have the right to access, rectify, download or erase your information, as well as the right to restrict and object to certain processing of your information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited circumstances. We describe these rights below:
You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data or to exercise any of the other rights. However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data or to exercise any of your other rights. This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.
Where we make changes to our privacy notice we shall let you know. It is important that the personal data we hold about you is accurate and current. Please keep us informed if your personal data changes during your relationship with us.
