Last updated: April 30, 2024

This Privacy Policy applies to the websites, apps, and services controlled by Fatuma’s Voice Foundation. (“we,” “our,” “us” or “Fatuma’s Voice”) or a third party agent of Fatuma’s Voice, and other websites, apps, and services where this Privacy Policy is posted (collectively, the “Sites”). The Sites include, without limitation, the services offered on or in connection with the Fatuma’s Voice (https://fatumasvoice.org) websites and any related mobile applications or platforms.

PLEASE READ THIS PRIVACY POLICY CAREFULLY BECAUSE BY USING THE SITES, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE, AS FAR AS PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAWS, YOU HAVE READ AND UNDERSTOOD THIS PRIVACY POLICY AND OUR PRIVACY PRACTICES. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THE INFORMATION PRACTICES DESCRIBED IN THIS PRIVACY POLICY, PLEASE DO NOT USE THE SITES.

Your use of the Sites is also expressly subject to our Terms of Service, available at https://fatumasvoice.org/terms/

We encourage you to periodically review this Privacy Policy to keep up to date on how we are handling your personal information.

This page informs you of our policies regarding the collection, use and disclosure of Personal Information when you use our Service. We will not use or share your information with anyone except as described in this Privacy Policy.

Information Collection And Use

While using our Service, we may ask you to provide us with certain personally identifiable information that can be used to contact or identify you. Personally identifiable information may include, but is not limited to, your name (“Personal Information”).

We use your Personal Information for providing and improving the Service. By using the Service, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with this policy. Unless otherwise defined in this Privacy Policy, terms used in this Privacy Policy have the same meanings as in our Terms and Conditions.

Children’s Privacy

Our Service does not address anyone under the age of 13 (“Children”).

We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under 13. If you are a parent or guardian and you are aware that your Children has provided us with Personal Information, please contact us. If we discover that a Child under 13 has provided us with Personal Information, we will delete such information from our servers immediately.

Website Visitors

Like most websites, we collect information of the sort that your browser sends whenever you visit our Service. This may include information such as your computer’s Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, browser version, the pages of our Service that you visit, the date and time spent on those pages, browser type, language preference, referring site and other statistics.

Our purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to understand better how visitors use the Service. From time to time, we may release non-personally identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

The Service also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged-in users and for users leaving comments. We only disclose the logged-in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

We collect two types of information from visitors to the Sites: (1) personal information; and (2) non-personal information. “Personal information” is information that identifies, relates to, describes, is capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with you, your household, or device, such as your name, address, telephone number, email address, or company name. “Non-personal information” is information that does NOT identify you or your household personally. We note, however, that throughout time, non-personal information could become personal information through regulatory developments, technological advancements, or co-mingling with personal information. Where personal information and non-personal information are combined, we treat the combined set of information as personal information.

We use your personal information that is collected on these Sites for the purposes set forth above. We primarily use information for the following purposes:

  • For the purpose of operating our business, including to improve and develop our services for security and fraud prevention purposes, and to improve user experience.
  • To alert you to updated information about Fatuma’s Voice, or other third parties, or, with your prior consent, to forward promotional materials.
  • To try to ensure the Sites are relevant to your needs.
  • To help us create and publish content most relevant to you.
  • To notify you about a material change to this Privacy Policy or the Terms of Use, if necessary.
  • To manage your subscriptions to the Sites, allow you access to limited-entry areas of the Sites, verify your access to your subscription accounts, and handle other customer support inquiries.
  • To generate web analytics and compile user information for marketing purposes, advertising, conducting marketing analysis. 
  • To contact you in response to proposals or inquiries that you submit on the Sites.
  • To use as otherwise disclosed in this Privacy Policy or at the time of collection of personal information.
  • To comply with our legal obligations. For example, to enable us to meet our obligations in connection with legal claims, compliance, regulatory, investigative, and disciplinary purposes and informal requests from law enforcement or other governmental authorities; and
  • As otherwise in compliance with the law.

For instance, Fatuma’s Voice may monitor the most popular pages on the site or use spam filters to help identify spam. Fatuma’s Voice may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Fatuma’s Voice does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Fatuma’s Voice discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information to process it on Fatuma’s Voice’s behalf or to provide services available on Fatuma’s Voice websites, and (ii) have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Fatuma’s Voice websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Fatuma’s Voice will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations, as described above, Fatuma’s Voice discloses potentially personally identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order, or other governmental requests, or when Fatuma’s Voice believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Fatuma’s Voice, third parties or the public at large.

We primarily use our various product blogs 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 one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Fatuma’s Voice takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
